A Letter to Mom and Dad

Dear Mom and Dad, it's me, your son; Out of my brothers, I'm the handsome one. You've been gone for quite a while; I'm glad you raised me when I was a child. There are many things I want us to do, But it just isn't the same without you. I'll never forget what you always said: "A still tongue keeps a wise head." "Be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove." There's nothing like a parent's love. I'll always remember your smiles and laughs Whenever I look at your photograph. There are some things I don't understand, But I'll leave it in God's unchanging hand. Mom and Dad, I'll see you again: You're in my heart from beginning to end. Thanks for everything that you've taught me: Love your son, Duane, and the Crichlow family.

A still tongue keeps a wise head. Love your poem to your parents. So touching and I can relate to some of your feelings. Wise advice from your parents.

Thank you so much. When I wrote this poem, I was thinking of a way to honor my parents after they passed away. I still miss them badly. Once again, I appreciate your feedback.
