Mum and Dad

He holds a glove

She a bouquet

Yes, you guessed, their wedding day

Such hopes, such dreams it seems they had

Mum and Dad

 

His face is strong, her eyes they shine

Face and eyes much like mine

A moment fixed within a frame

Good times and bad, Mum and Dad

 

So many years have come and gone

So many cares and worries too

To see them there, that inner glow

Starting out so long ago

 

My heart is full

And it’s glad

To take this time for Mum and Dad

For all the love and memories shared   

The life we had

 

 I see you smile

As if you knew

I’d stop awhile in thanks to you

I know some hopes and dreams came true

Ones you had, Mum and Dad

 

So many years have come and gone

So many cares and worries too

To see you there, that inner glow

Starting out so long ago

 

Hold the glove

And bouquet

You look great and fine that way

Here’s to all the life we had

Mum and Dad..........Mum and Dad
