A Parent's Wishes

The sun always rises
a new day has begun
Dream or nightmare coming
there are things to be done

Eat up and prepare
don't sit and stare
Just do your best
and everything will come to rest

Work or school
do not drool
All things end
So do not offend

Home is where the heart is
sit back and enjoy what you have
Don't take anything for granted
these times will be the best you will have

So love life
Smile like you never will again
Because as the sun sets
Tomorrow is something you can only pretend.

    Congratulations, Thomas. You have made it through the first round of judging for Poetrysoup October 13, 2009 poetry contest. Your poem, The Parent's Wishes efficiently summarizes things like manners, work, education, etc. When a child pretends (Dreams) his tomorrow and makes it a goal=happier. 2009 was a successful year of poetry for you. I come, now, wishing you continued success in your writing endeavors throughout 2010 and for many years to come. God be with you. Lovingly, Dane Ann
