A Father's Vow

You just came into this world today
And now my life is gonna change
I hold you now sleeping in my arms
I vow to always keep you safe from harm

I pray you don’t make my mistakes
To live your life with those as strengths
I hope you grow to be everything
To live your dreams to laugh and sing

I want to see as you do now
Where everything good is off your bow
A fair wind blows where you want to go
Despair and hate are not yet known

Today’s the day my life has changed
You were born you are here to stay
I make a vow to you and to myself
To love you more than life itself
