The first time you smiled, I was Working.
The first time you Laughed, I was Working.
The first time you learned to sit up, I was Working.
The first time you crawled, I was Working.
Your mother will tell me of your wonderful accomplishments, I am proud!
Though I am saddened, I will never let you know.
I will never let your mother know.
This is my burden to bare, and no one else's.
Please don't think this is how your life will be.
I'll be there for you my son.
I won't miss your games, I won't miss your awards, I won't miss your growing up.
I know what that was like and I won't make the same mistake.
That is my Promise to my Son
