Thank you so much for everything,
For giving me knowledge to learn,
Thank you so much for your care,
For the sacrifices you all bear.
To my dear parents whom I owed my life,
Being in this world is what you really like,
To make me grow as a good person,
And to do your will as what I've shown.
Words are not enough to express my gratitude,
So I write this poem as simple as I could,
This is my only gift to your love and care for me,
I will cherish it in my heart, you see.
I thank God for giving me a good mother and father,
Though you are not a model as what it said by other,
Giving me life, taking care of me is what it really matter,
For me, you are both the best parents I ever had forever.
