The Promise for Punkin


I promised you I'd bring you home,

You know I'd never lie.

I asked that you please fight the fight

to live and not to die.


You were so sick and looked so weak,

my heart broke right in two.

But I gave my word that day we talked,

that I'd keep my promise to you.


You were so tired your body weak,

You decided it was time to go.

You took with you the day you left

my heart I hope you know.


I understand you could not stay,

though I had begged you to.

I thought it would be in a different way,

But I kept my promise to you.


I bought you home as I had promised,

because home is where you should be.

I hope you know my love for you,

is for all eternity.


So wait for me until I get there,

then we will never part.

But until the day when I arrive,

You are home in mama's heart.


I love you sweet baby.

Tanya (mom)
