Thank you Mom and Thank you Dad

Updated on June 13, 2015

You spend years wishing your parents would get off your back, only to realize they're the only ones who ever really had your back.

— Susan Gale

You gave me birth ,

taught me to talk;

Holding my finger,

you made me walk.

And then came friends,

people of my age;

Slowly I moved to,

my life's next stage.

Playing in the rain,

I used to get ill;

But without any complaints,

you nurtured me still.

Some things not to be done,

was told by you;

Out of curiosity,

I still used to do,

And then I came to you,

bruised and battered;

You were there with me,

always when it mattered.

Sacrifices you made,

for my better future;

Gratitude to you,

was still not in my nature,

Young and naïve I was,

nothing I knew;

You guided me throughout,

till mature I grew.

Independent I became,

took my own decision;

Your support was although there,

there was never any cessation.

When upset I grew,

it hurt you the most;

When happy I was,

your joy knew no bounds.

A smile on my face,

would make your day;

You never let any trouble ,

come my way.

Words are insufficient,

to completely describe you;

For people like you,

are extremely few.

Nothing much I can do,

to repay your debt;

All I can do,

is say 'Thank You'.

Thank you mom,

Thank you dad;

You are the best ,

anybody could ever have had.

anybody could ever have had....

Just give a thought !

Do you feel that whatever our parents do for us is their responsibility and so, they should not expect anything in return?

See results

It is time to say Merci to your Special ones!
