Ode to Mom & Dick
Ode To Mom and Dick
Let me share with you a story of love and hope. We were blessed early in our life to meet Lisa. Lisa is and has been a special and true friend since my twin sister and I were in fourth grade. The cute story goes like this:
My brother David knew he needed to introduce Linda and I to Lisa. He knew we would be kindred spirits. Lisa met my darling and most charming brother David in the fourth grade. She was asked to come over, off the bus by him one day when she was in seventh grade. He had such a crush on her. Once Lisa came over off the school bus to be with our brother David, she met me and my twin Linda. They never made it as a young couple. Lisa, Linda and I were never the same. We girls never stopped talking and the rest was history.
Tonight, Linda, Lisa, her mom & step dad Dick met out at the Fletcher's Wharf where we had been many times in our lives. Lisa's parents, mom and step dad Dick as you will see are our second set of parents. My twin sister Linda and I lost our mom at age 9. It was this very year that our brother brought over a gal off the bus that he believed would get along well. He was right, we ended up being kindred spirits and love each other so deeply in this life. Linda and I today brought this poem to Lisa's mom and step dad Dick to let them know how much they mean to us and have since we knew them since we were in fourth grade. Today our brother David has since passed.
ODE TO MOM & DICK-------------------------------
You were always there for us when twinners needed you
Your our special adopted mom & dad and dad Dick threw our shoes
Isn't it funny how life tends to go
when our kids are naughty
their shoes we throw
We always knew you both had our backs
Whether our day was bright or our world was black
You helped us get through good days and pain
You loved us through struggles
it was never in vain
You mean more to us than you'll ever know
You showed us Christs' love and helped us to grow
Through fires, houseboat, Dugells and more
our memories stay with us, especially of Lore.
