To Mom And Dad At Christmas

The holidays are coming on
And just like every year,
I think of you more often now
And wish that you were here.

Here I stand alone today
But you are not so far away..
In every little thing I do
I see a bit of each of you.

The things you gave me through my life
I never can repay.
And I know it's thanks to you
I'm who I am today.

You taught me how to show respect,
You taught me right from wrong.
And at the times I would have quit,
You helped me to be strong.

Mom's strong and independent way
I carry with me to this day.
Dad's gentle fair integrity
A guiding light will always be.

And at this time of giving
I hope you both can see
My gift to you is living
So you'd be proud of me.



If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW

Such a lovely tribute to your parents; very touching poem. Critique: Could use some adjustment in verse 2 and 5..rhyme-wise. But the rest is very, very good. Keep on writing - never give up!
