Poem: I Will, I Promise

I Will, I Promise

I’ll tidy your room,
I’ll weed the garden,
and I’ll smell your perfume
without begging your pardon.

I’ll vacuum the floor,
I’ll feed all your pets,
I’ll answer the door
and I’ll pay off the debts.

I’ll love you in small ways,
I’ll sing you this song,
I’ll be with you always
and I’ll admit I was wrong.

I’ll wash your car,
I’ll change the bedding,
I’ll wish on your star
and I’ll remember our wedding.

I’ll do what I’m told,
I’ll try to be brave,
From now till I’m old
I’ll put flowers on your grave.
