My Father, My Mother ( a lyrical poem)

Seeds of love well shared...
Seeds of love well shared...


My father, my champion, my mentor, my friend,

My captain, my hero, and defender, to the end.

You were always there, because you did care,

I could always count on you, always on you to depend.


Refrain:

You were the strong wind behind my sails,

And you shared a love that never fails.

Angels smiled on me, and I was so blessed,

You gave me the strength, for my success.

My father, my brother, you were the best.



My mother, my great protector, my inspiration, appreciator,

Gave me life, you taught me right from wrong, along the way.

You always showed you cared, your precious love you shared,

As you watched over me, both night and day.


Refrain:

You were the strong wind behind my sails,

And you shared a love that never fails.

Angels smiled on me, and I was so blessed,

You gave me the strength, for my success,

My mother, my angel, you were the best.


Now that I'm grown, I'll never feel alone,

As over the years, how the time has flown,

You gave me hope, a bright future, was mine,

Despite the storms, I had sunshine.


Refrain:

You were the strong wind, behind my sails,

And you shared a love that never fails.

Angels smiled on me, and I was so blessed,

You gave me the strength, for my success.

My mother, my father, you both were the best.


My father, my champion, my mentor, my friend,

My captain, my hero, and defender to the end.

My mother, great protector, my inspiration, appreciator,

You both saved my life, and on your love, I did depend.


Refrain:

You were the strong wind behind my sails,

And you shared a love that never fails.

Angels smiled on me, and I was so blessed,

You gave me the strength for my success,


My mother, my father, you were the best.

My mother, my father, you were the best.

Whonu, this is so beautiful. I feel the same way about my parents. I'm fortunate to still have them in my life, and I let them know every chance I get that they are the strength behind the woman I've become.

I relate to every word in this poem. I hope my son feels the same way about me.
