Poetry
My Promise to You

Lori Bernard

Iím exhausted.
Heís crying again.
I have to get up and comfort him.

Okay, Iíll go.
He needs me there.
I put on my socks and pull back my hair.

I stumble.
Itís dark and I canít see.
My husband canít go because he needs me.

Come to me.
Mommyís here.
I wipe away his face of tears.

Here, my child.
I give him my breast.
Heís so content against my chest.

Heís asleep.
I lay him down.
I escape away without a sound.

Goodnight, baby.
I will see you soon.
I will gladly get up again for you.
