Affirmation

To my father and my mother -
In my world there is no other
Quite as giving or as true,
Or as caring, as you two.

Even through the paths unknown,
You make sure I'm not alone;
In the troubles and mistakes,
You are here for both our sakes.

Loving in so many ways -
Always there to give me praise,
Giving guidance and respect -
Splendid that we do connect.

Full of purpose and devotion,
Sending you my deep emotion,
I am grateful to be yours -
Allies that this son adores.

It's my heart I do express,
That I wish great happiness
For our family, and you both;
Know this is my solemn oath.
