A promise

Holding her hand in mine I gave her a promise 
A promise to always be there for her
A promise to protect her from dangers known and unknown
To be the her person no matter what the circumstances

As she grew up, I grew old and I could feel
That perhaps I won’t be able to keep my promise for long
Maybe time would not allow me to be there for her, forever
I needed to take her hand and make another promise

I told her that I promised to watch over here even when
I was no longer a part of her life in this world
I vowed to be her guardian Angel from above
Because even when I’m gone, she still would be my little girl
