Dear Mom and Dad,
This I want to say to you
How much I love you.
When I look at days gone by
I can never forget how hard you’d try
How through the most difficult of days
Your love you showed us in so many ways.
We always felt safe and secure
even if the times were sore
You never let us feel lost
But worked hard and fought no matter the cost
You never thought of your own interest
But always sought to give us your best
Dad, you have always been an inspiration
Never giving up in any situation
How you’ve had to sacrifice
Providing for us came at a price
Though by many misunderstood
You were strong and withstood
Mom, your tender loving care
I just cannot compare
Working tirelessly through the day
Non-stop without a holiday
How it would break our heart
To see from your eyes a tear depart.
And maybe there were times that went
Things were said that were never meant
When I look back I can only say
Wish life gave a chance to ‘replay’
But come what may, we’re there beside you
We love you so much and you know it’s true.
And what inspires us the most
And this definitely deserves a toast
You’ve stuck together
In good and bad weather
It’s been a long fifty years now
Since you both first took your vow.
Life’s not been easy t’was tough
But together you’ve shown us sure enough
That when we’re there for each other
Come sun or rain it won’t matter
As each others hands you hold
See how silver has turned to gold.
Happy 50th Anniversary celebrations!
