A Letter to My Parents...

A Letter to My Parents…


Are you the same mom and dad
I used to know?
Since I left the house… many years ago?

Both 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 saw 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.

Will you take the time to 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…
You’re the world to me.
And you’re special to God!  It’s plain to see!

May your days be blessed and
God’s presence fill your soul.
I will always love you,
wherever you go.

Thanks mom and dad for reading
this “special letter.”
With God on board… Things will get better!

About the Poet
I and my wife have 4 grown children and currently live in the Pacific Northwest. I've spent much of my life doing volunteer work in the food distribution for the needy among local churches. Many of the poems I've written are a reflection of times of adversity as a reminder of God's love and faithfulness. I've found many opportunities to share my poems with those who are hurting and discouraged. I'm thankful for the reports of many of the poems touching people's lives. I hope that the poems included on Wordchimes will touch and bless your life too!
