A poem (possibly board book) I wrote for my soon-to-be grandson. I took out his name here.
This I promise to you Little One.
This I promise to you.



I promise to offer my hand as a guide

to keep you upright

and to walk by your side.



I promise to offer my arms as a nest

to hug you, to hold you

and give you a rest.



This I promise to you Little One.
This I promise to you.



I promise to offer my lap as a nook

to serve as a seat 

when I read you a book.



I promise to offer my voice as a balm

to soothe you to sleep

or return you to calm.



This I promise to you Little One.
This I promise to you.



I promise to offer my eyes and my ears

as cameras to capture 

your growth through the years.



I promise to offer my feet as a route
to passage and play
both inside and out.

This I promise to you Little One.
This I promise to you.



I promise to offer my strength as a brace

to send you support

anytime, anyplace.

I promise to offer my thoughts as a seed

to plant where you want

and to use as you need.



This I promise to you Little One.
This I promise to you.

And lastly, I promise my love as the twine
to tether, forever,

your wishes to mine.
