I happened upon this poem, enjoy it.


The Promise


By AE Wise

I held you in my arms
So gently
Looking into eyes the color
Of the earth's floor.
Hair a silk capped wonder,
Your breath an angel's kiss.
Softly I whispered to you,
"Please, promise you'll never grow older.
Stay in my arms forever
And make all my dreams come true."

I held your little hand
So tightly
Eyes bright with wonder
Of the world
Hair sun kissed curls
Your voice singing a chorus of joy.
Softly I whispered a prayer,
"Please, let her never grow older.
Let her stay in my arms forever,
And make all my dreams come true."

I rocked you in my arms
So lovingly
Eyes wet with new shed tears
Hair so soft beneath my fingers
Your voice filled with heartbroken emotion
You softly whispered to me,
"Please, I don't want to grow older,
Let me stay here in your arms forever,
Because my dreams will never come true."

I held you in my arms
Just a moment
Eyes shining with love
Hair resplendent with flowers
Your voice alive with promise
Softly you whispered to him,
"Please, let us grow older together,
Let me stay in your arms forever,
Together we will make dreams have come true."

You held her in your arms
So gently
Looking into each others eyes
Filled with love and joy
I held my breath as I listened
Softly you whispered to her,
"Please, promise you'll never grow older,
Stay in my arms forever,
And make all my dreams come true."

You made all my dreams come true.
