For everything you have ever done
To make my life better.
I might deny it sometimes,
But a great part of who I am
Is thanks to the two of you.
Sometimes I thought to myself
That you were being too strict,
But now I see
That it was all for the better,
And I am thankful for it all.
You taught me respect
On a level most kids my age
Never even heard of.
You taught me the value of life
In an easy way to understand.
I know that I
Can sometimes be a little hard-headed
Or even a real teaser,
But still I have managed
To follow your teachings
As good a person as I can be.
Since I was born, I have never been loved by a person like the way my parents do. I was sometimes naughty, but they guided me through the right path. Days were sometimes dark friends turned...
Thank You For Taking Care Of Me
