Never hurt you or scare you.
I will love you always
And do my best
To teach you and protect you.
I will check your closet for monsters,
Put band-aids on all your scrapes,
And hang your pictures on my fridge.
I will celebrate your triumphs,
Take pride in your strengths,
Reassure you when you’re insecure
And cry when you are in pain.
I will give all that I can and more
To be there for you every day
For the rest of your life.
You hold a special place in my heart
And that will never change
No matter how much the world does.
