Mom and dad… What Happened to YOU?
Are you the same mom and dad
I used to know?
Since I left the house, many years ago?
YOU, who carefully taught me the Christian ways.
Don’t seem to care what the Bible says.
You were there to give correction
with a belt in hand.
But now are doing things… I don’t understand.
What happened to the father’s love
I once seen in your eyes?
You’ve somehow twisted God's truth into corruptible lies.
You’ve broken my heart
dear mom and dad.
I’m praying for you…
but my heart grows sad.
Please… Just this once… Listen to me!
I want the Godly parents you used to be!
Please make me proud of the
parents I once knew.
And know that I really love
and appreciate you.
You’re my mom and dad…
And the world to me!
And you’re special to God! Can’t you see?
May your days be blessed and
God’s presence fill your soul.
I will always love you! No matter
where you may go!
Thanks mom and dad for reading
this “special letter.”
With God on board… Things will get better!
