Ma and Dad, so grateful we are,
For all you’ve done to guide us thus far.
With love you’ve given us a wonderful start;
In all our successes you’ve played a big part.
You’ve always been there for us and you still are.
We count on you dearly for moral support.
To the next generation your kindness has spread,
Your optimism has helped them to get ahead.
An excellent example to our children you’ve shown.
Your good influence to all we’ve made known.
So please continue to show us the way
To a wonderful future as you have today.
