My Parents

I will never take for granted
how greatly I’ve been blessed;
For when it comes to parents,
Mom and Dad, you are the best!.

You nurtured and protected me
and taught me with great care.
And every time I’ve needed you,
you were always there.

If you could look into my heart
how quickly you would see,
the special place you hold there,
and how much you mean to me.

May you receive the blessings
you are so deserving of
for your caring, and your sharing,
and each sacrifice of love.

And may you carry in your hearts
these words forever true…
No parents anywhere on earth
could be more loved than you.


I did not write this poem, because the words I wanted to say had already been written in this one.
