Dear Parents

Dear Parents short poem

When I broke off from the warmth of the belly
I had nothing decent.
When I entered another season
I had nothing decent.
But I had you.
You bore me, nursed me and liberated me from pain.
The pain I should have suffered.
And you redeemed me.
For that, I am grateful.

Amid a crowd of commotion,
You have brought me with principles to guard my life.
In the midst of youngsters who sleep in the twilight of danger,
You have bred mine infantile with prayer to live in the protection of the Almighty.
In this world where the rich are the richest and the poor are very poor,
You have blessed me by the first suck, so I enjoy the comfort of Him.
For that I am grateful.

When it seemed to be over and nothing was left to be done,
There you raised your faith and with God nothing is impossible.
When the clouds darkened and the tyres of luck flattened,
Then the gear of prayer rose and the favor of God immense.
When news came with vast surprise,
No matter how good the news was or bad,
Your faith was higher than any mountain, even the Mount of Everest.
You led my soul well and for that, I am most grateful.

I have learnt much, which can certainly live my page full,
But the greater the influence you have put upon my life,
I shall not bleed tears of succumb or imprudence.
May God bless you abundantly, exceedingly
Above all you can think of.

With Love
