Promise Made, Promises Kept

He would say all the time

I promise We’ll do it tomorrow

or next week

or next month.

The children learned

promises were not promises

and were easily broken.

So I did the only thing I could

I would tell them

I can not promise you

but I will try.

If I made a promise

I fulfilled it.

That is why I am single

and he only sees the children

occasionally.
