Special Parents As You

I’m sorry I disappointed you
And failed in so many ways,
I only wanted to make you proud
And thank you for the yesterdays.

I didn’t mean to make you cry
Or fill your heart with pain,
I didn’t mean to paint clouds
That filled your days with rain.

You are very special parents
Whom I love with all my heart,
And I won’t let life’s challenges
Tear our family apart.

You are the magical seeds 
That motivates me to grow,
You are my powerful shelter 
When the cold winds blow.

You are the blessed rainbow
Standing tall after the storm,
You are my inspiration
The loving reason I was born.

You are the shining sun
That warms my day,
You are the guiding light
That helps me find my way.

I’m sorry for all the pain
I’ve caused you to feel,
Life maybe but a fantasy
But my love for you is real.

Thank you for being there
And for everything you do,
I know that I am very lucky
To have parents as special as you.

    A very beautiful tribute to your parents. We all makes mistakes as children. It is simply the cycle of life. The thing is to learn from them. I have a poem like this I framed for my parents as a gift. Well done. Love, Shar

    Deborah I never met my dad and I watched my mother drown at age 4 - My grandparents raised me and I failed them in so many ways but today I honestly think they are proud of the man that I've became - I'm certain you were a much better child than I and I think that your poem is priceless - God Bless
