My Promise - Poem by GJG Elton

I make this solemn promise, to be:

your servant, when, you need to reign,
your doctor, when you are ill,
your army, when, you go to war,
a pen, when you need a quill,

your umbrella, when life rains down on you,
your rock, when you get weary,
your shield, for when you need defense,
your spirit, when you are dreary,

your pillow, when, you need to rest,
an ear, when no one listens,
your hero, when, you’re under attack,
a mirror, when you glisten,

the answer, when, questions arise,
your fortress, when you need a wall,
your voice, when no one hears you speak,
your sunshine, when darkness falls,

a hand, to hold, when you feel fright,
your spirit, when you are drained,
your inspiration, to conquer, obstacles,
your comfort, when you feel pain,

your friend, when you feel all alone,
your guide, to lead the way,
the truth, when others lie to you,
your toy, when you want to play,

the kiss, that wakes you every day,
and arms, that hold you tight,
your lover, that loves you without reserve,
and your 'I love you' every night.

I am yours... all of me.
