Ode to Parents

When you were a child
Every sight wondrous
Every sound marvellous
Every new day joyous

On along the way you lost
Sweet happiness naive Innocence
That Something irreplaceable
The inner light so incredible

A love too unconditional
Eyes closed in mother's lap
fragile visage indestructible
Nothing felt impossible

Embrace of a father
lifting a child feeling low
Reassuring and sublime
There for him all the time

Still can hear those prayers
That were meant for you
As you lay down at night
Mother's arm pillow just right

Instilled with love & affection
Values & virtues live on
The sum of all nurture
when love becomes nature
