A Parents Letter
Please forgive me, if I wasn’t there.
Please forgive me, if you think I didn’t care.
Please forgive me, if I wasn’t always home.
Please forgive me, if you felt alone.
Please for give me, if sometimes in life you struggled.
Please forgive me, for every obstacle….every hurdle.
When you thought I wasn’t there.
When you thought I didn’t care.
I was standing there giving you protection,
Waiting to guide you …… give you direction.
When you say you were alone.
When you say I wasn’t home.
I was working hard to give you choices,
so in this world you aren’t voiceless.
You clothes! Your home! Your education!
All the things that were just there.
All provided by your parents.
Was this because they do not care?
A parents job is never easy
It is often hard to try and please you.
We are not there to be your friend
but we will be there till the very end.
When you think you can’t go on.
We will be standing there to keep you strong.
In the shadows we will remain
Always to give without gain.
When you think that life’s been hard
On every birthday did you get a card?
Did you ever go without food?
Was there ever a Christmas that wasn’t good.
Before you bad mouth about your parents
because you think they’re old and ancient.
Take a good look at all they’ve done,
to help your grow and be someone.
