Parents

A Poem by Leonard Birch
"

The two greatest loves of my life. 'Parents'.

"

My Parents

 

 You were there
when; I felt pain
when I was wrong
you never gave blame

Now it’s my turn
to help you out
my dearest, my all
that’s what love is all about.

You're welcome, Leo! All the best to you and yours as well! :)
Ah, an homage to parents, those of us who struggle to give our children the best, but don't always succeed and, in fact, usually fall quite short of perfection'... oh wait, that might just be me! (hehe) This short poem is evidence that your parents did well in their parenting because they raised a man to honor and love them, and canonize that into writing! I hope that despite my pitfalls and mistakes, my children can some day say the same for me.
