Picturesque Speech

A picture's worth a thousand words
But this one's worth much more
Two angels that I knew and loved
Two birds about to soar

They changed me when I needed change
And taught me how to talk
They fed me when I had to eat
And taught me how to walk

I learned these things and even more
Of life that I should know
I put these pieces in their place
As life began to grow

It's sad to say they're not here now
They live inside my mind
I'm glad to say I've found a wife
Who's equally as kind

I now look back upon our life
And how they made me glad
I'm proud to say that they're the ones
I call my Mom and Dad

Rockman
