A poem written on behalf of a daughter for her mom and dad to existing to them on their 50th wedding anniversary.
Anna desired to convey what great, strong, loyal mom and dad they are. Mothers and fathers who love God, the church and their young children. Their devotion and loyalty to their young children are appreciated. That they are honest with their dealings with many others they you should not just take sides with anyone. They are, she thinks, soul mates.
There are great and poor mom and dad in this planet,
a definition that, at moments, is tough to make,
but when you strike seriously fantastic mom and dad,
well, that just is the icing on the cake.
So, what defines greatness?
I guess it will come from the pretty within,
and I know that I could not have picked finer mom and dad,
I could not – even if I had attempted.
You see, I have great, strong, loyal mom and dad,
mom and dad who love their God, their church and their own,
and I am just so pretty grateful to them,
I am pretty grateful for all the love that they have shown.
They have been my inspiration in life,
They have been my guideline, my shining gentle,
They have steered us to tread on great grounds,
and their love has shone so regular and dazzling.
Their love has shone by their patience,
and at moments, I will acknowledge that I have place that to the test,
their love has shone by their steerage,
and some of their advice has verified to be the pretty finest.
They have generally taken the time to discuss to us,
for that we thank them with all our hearts,
they have performed this kind of a important purpose in our life,
and they have equally performed a mighty great areas.
Father was generally a great service provider,
but also he presented his knowledge to share,
he taught us morals and values for residing,
and that it was generally important to treatment.
He is actually a pretty generous man,
but does not consider in throwing away anything,
conservative in his mother nature,
generally careful about what tomorrow may possibly bring.
My mother is also my buddy,
and I am so proud to be her daughter,
she has a heat light spirit,
she is like streams of free flowing drinking water.
I don’t forget my sister and I racing to untie Daddy’s boots,
He had be weary at the finish of his doing work working day,
he would sit back and rest,
and we, of class, would then go out to enjoy.
I don’t forget sitting at breakfast on a Sunday early morning,
and by natural means, we would all say Grace,
and I don’t forget John jogging powering the truck,
you really should have viewed the appear upon his experience.
And we have so lots of pleased reminiscences,
too lots of to be separately told,
but all those reminiscences will very last lots of a lifetime,
important treasures that we will generally hold.
Because, it is just excellent when two persons are living their life,
in a way that many others recognize and want to be like that,
it is very little to brag nor boast about,
but rather, a thing to be grateful for, and that is a point.
Because, when soul mates are living in harmony,
many others see it and motivation it too,
and I consider the greatest words and phrases ever spoken,
were being fifty a long time in the past – and they were being “I do”.
