My Promise

I cannot give you normal,
Sweet girl,
It is not written in our DNA.

I cannot give you perfection,
It does not exist.

I cannot give you siblings,
One and only,
I am aware of my own resources.

I cannot give you God,
“My little witch,”
When I cannot find him myself.

I cannot give you ALL of me,
Dear daughter,
Without compromising us.

I cannot give you forever,
We must learn to value now.

But I can give you my presence,
Baby girl,
I am here.

While I can will it,
I will show up for you.
