a promise...



When monsters lurk in corners, behind curtains and under beds
and nightmares haunt your peaceful sleep.
I will be your comfort blanket, your nightlight and a soothing lullaby
and my hugs will bring your sweeter dreams.



When bumped heads, grazed knees and cut fingers ruin your play
and bring big fat tears to roll down your cheeks
I will be the healing magic, the "mummy doctor" and a superhero 
who can take pain away with a kiss.




When things go wrong, life is unfair and it just don't go your way
and you need talking to about life and love.
I will be the compass that sets you back on the right path
and reminds you of who you are and how wonderful you can be.



When life beckons and you are afraid or unsure,
and the world seems too big and too scary.
I will be the wind in your sails, your anchor and your safe harbour,
and I'll help you to sail and fly.




When awards are granted, grades are earned, games are won
and you are shining brighter than the brightest of stars.
I will be your champion cheerleader, full of unimaginable pride;
your biggest fan in the whole wide world.



When you are big and grown up, 
with a job and a home and a family of your own.
I will be a faithful friend, the listening ear and the nest you can always come back to
and you will always be a baby to me.
