Do you still remember

When we were young

That face which always smile at us

It is the face of mom


The other face that smile at us

And wink at us at times

And gives a thumbs up

That’s the face of dad


She holds your arms when you walk

She guides you where to go

She gives you food

When you are hungry


She never gets tired

And always applaud you

And look at the tears in her eyes

The times you get sick


He sometimes play with you

Tickle you and raise you up

You see him sometimes only

But he is always there for you


He throws ball at you

Carried you in his arms

Even though you know he is tired

He always kiss you in the forehead


She is there waiting for you after school

And teach you how to read

Spend time coloring with you

And give you lessons in life


He works hard for you

But he never gets tired

He is happy when he sees you

And always proud of you

But now, time passed by

And they are old

Now its time

To take care of them too

You look in their eyes

And they both smile at you

It seems they don’t have energy

To play with you anymore

But still they are there

Watching and guiding you

Asking how are you

And help you in any way

The only thing you can do

Is to repay what they did to you

They need loving and a caring

And a lot more understanding

Because sometimes they are slow already

And they cant understand when you talk

Dont make fun of them

Just listen to them

A simple way of showing

How you love them

Is talking to them

And ask them how they are

Can love be repaid?

I guess it can never be

The least we can do

Is to love them the best you could

It may never be the same

How they have loved you

But at least love them

As best as you can do!

      Beautiful hub - well done. As an adult, I'm always telling my parents how much love them and appreciate all the sacrifices they made for me and my siblings while we were growing up. Kudos!
