I am trying to write something like:
Dear father. I will be with my only son, keeping him safe, like you did me.
Is the last part ok? "like you did me" - or does it have to be: "like you kept me" ? ...or just something else?
It is part of a poem, and I do not want the long version - "keeping him safe, like you kept me safe" - but if there is no short way around it, I guess I'll do it.
Your original sentence is fine.
