Thank You So Much

Written by: Maria Paz Samelo

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.
