As my parents got older, they got harder to buy for on special occasions, so I started writing them poetry as a gift. They actually preferred that to me spening the money on them. I would have the poetry printed on stiff board and mounted in a frame.


As I turn another year older today, I reflect on my thirty plus years

And the many things that I'm thankful for, but the greatest is parents so dear.

       You fed me and clothed me, took care of my needs

Calmed me from fears in the night.

Bandaged my hurts with kisses and hugs, And taught me to do what was right.

You made time to play, we took walks in the woods

We fished and played lots of ball

No matter the game, I asked you to play, You were willing to give it your all.


You took me to Church and taught me God's love

You were examples in word and in deed

By placing Him first and living for Him, I would always have all that I need.

You taught me that life is as precious as gold

And the best things in life are free

Like the offer of friendship to someone alone, And a smile for someone I see.


 I know you weren't perfect, but neither was I 

Many a difference we shared

But in all that you did and all that you said, I always knew that you cared.

You gave me your best, while raising me up, I’m sorry when I let you down

But I love you much more than you’ll ever know

There are no better parents around.

I could never return what you’ve given to me, But this I want you to know

The words on this page are my gift to you

Thank you both for loving me so.
