Promise – A Poetic Response to “Someday”

This poem, Promise, is written as a response to "Someday" written by Garima who started blogging at

I was touched by her poem. Each line she wrote posed a valid question from a Mother to a Son.  And I was compelled to write a response to those questions - in my own poetic style. 🙂


Your smile keeps me going
I would give anything to see it again,
Wrinkles would only add to your beauty Ma
I promise to be your strength in your pain...

A body might get weak with time
The soul stays forever young,
When you are unable to continue your race
Just walk along with your beautiful son...


Promise - A Poem by Nitin

Love is foremost, money comes next
Ever since my childhood I know you were my best,
And with a smile while I share my learnings of the day
I promise to await your advice with your experienced ways...

With time, memories might fade away
Often I would remind you; a good old few,
And while you lean and rest on me
Let's create them memories new...

I wish and pray you live for long
With a healthy body and mind strong,
And hope everyday be bright, sparkling new
It's surely a promise to you!
