“Memories are one of the true riches
That life offers, and right now,
So many wonderful thoughts fill my mind.
They are very special because
They are our own to treasure forever.
From the time I was a child,
I have been blessed with
The strength and support you give.
You have placed your trust in me,
And I know I can never repay you
No matter how hard I try.
I have seen in you a God-given love
And you have shown this love for me
In everything you have done.
May God bless your lives
As fully as I have been blessed because of you.
I Love You!”

2. Parents

“Parents are always there
Always letting you know they care
In the darkness they are the light,
They can make even the darkest days bright.

Earwigs, roaches and spiders, they’re not scared of any
For our happiness they’d trade every penny.
They scare away the monsters from beneath our bed,
‘I’ll love you forever’ they’ve often said.

They also nag and give us curfews
More and more responsibilities to review
‘No going on dates till your 16’
When you go out fill the car with gasoline

They always tell us to shoot for the stars,
Who knew love could be so hard?
No matter how much you hated them and thought they were wrong,
You still miss them when they are gone.

Parents will forever be our friends,
And love us unconditionally till the end.”

— Christine Mulvihill

3. My Parents, My Heroes

“My parents are my greatest heroes,
For they help me defeat my foes.
Without them, I wouldn’t be here now.
To follow their ways is my vow.
The love and support they give me,
Gives me so much glee.
They always show me that there is hope,
At times when I can’t cope.
I’ll always love and obey them,
And treasure them like a gem.
I’ll always give them praise,
For they put a smile on my face.”

— Lucy Ginny

“Mom, you’re a wonderful mother,
So gentle, yet so strong.
The many ways you show you care
Always make me feel like I belong.

You’re patient when I’m foolish;
You give guidance when I ask;
It seems you can do almost anything;
You’re the master of every task.

You’re a dependable source of comfort;
You’re my cushion when I fall.
You help in times of trouble;
You support me whenever I call.

I love you more than you know;
You have my total respect.
If I had my choice of mothers,
You’d be the one I’d select!”

5. The Love Of A Mother

“A Mother’s love is something
that no one can explain,
It is made of deep devotion
and of sacrifice and pain

It is endless and unselfish
and enduring come what may
For nothing can destroy it
or take that love away

It is patient and forgiving
when all others are forsaking,
And it never fails or falters
even though the heart is breaking

It believes beyond believing
when the world around condemns,
And it glows with all the beauty
of the rarest, brightest gems

It is far beyond defining,
it defies all explanation,
And it still remains a secret
like the mysteries of creation

A many splendored miracle
man cannot understand
And another wondrous evidence
of God’s tender guiding hand.”

But you’re really so much more;
You’re a guide and a companion;
You and I have a great rapport.

You pay attention to me;
You listen to what I say.
You pass on words of wisdom,
Helping me along the way.

Whenever I’m in trouble,
You always have a plan.
You are the perfect father,
And I’m your biggest fan.”

With all its wonders and dreams
We often fail to take notice
Of what life really means
So I’m going to take one moment
To give my point of view
That there is no finer parents
Than I find in both of you
Now I’m giving all my thanks
To the Heavens up above
For giving me the wisest parents
To whom I give my love
So thank you mom and dad
Just for always being there
And showing that we’re truly loved
And that you really care.”

You were just a call away
Even though I held the phone
And had nothing to say
You both always understood

To explain my problems

Thanks for always being there
For watching my back
Without parents like you
My life wouldn’t be on track
Thank you.”
