NOTE TO MOM AND DAD

As your children, Moms and Dads, we’d like for you to know

we’re glad you were around to help us all to grow.

 

You understood that our time as children is short…how it only lasts a little while

In that time you taught us how to be happy…you taught us how to smile.

 

You showed us that we mattered…we think that is the key

You loved us for who we are…not for who you wanted us to be.

 

You understood how to be a parent…how we were your priority

You knew your jobs were important…but also…so were we

 

You knew we were your children…not distractions you could shirk

In fact…you showed us every day we were your most important work.

 

You taught us to be accepting and kind…so when our childhood ends

We would be good people…good husbands, wives and friends.

 

Here are two things we’d like to tell you…two things we hope you never forget

The first…we will always be your children no matter how old we get.

 

The second is just a little something we shall forever be counting on…

always send us a goodnight kiss…even when we’re gone. 

 

And now that our childhood is ending…(like we said it only lasts a little while)

we want to thank you for giving us the kind of childhood we can look back on and smile.

 

Thank you for loving us every day…like you did the day we came

 

and making it so easy…for us to do the same.
