This poem was written one day when I was thinking about my father. He taught me the most precious things in life. Things I wanted to teach my own children. Hope you all enjoy this one!

A Parent's Love

A day filled with laughter comes to an end
As he leans in with lots of love to send

Three kisses to the forehead
As he tucks his little girl into bed

She repeats the words that he has to say
As he teaches her how to pray

Night after night he helps her out
He loves her dearly without a doubt

Days turn into years
His eyes are filled of tears

His little girl not so little anymore
He stands proud one night at the door

Three kisses to the forehead
As she tucks her child into bed

He hears the words that she has to say
As she teaches her child how to pray

He watches wondering how she got so smart
Smiling with so much love in his heart

This work so reminds me of my father who taught wisdom has he raised each day. So many lessons from his childhood and from his own life experiences. That I passed on to my nephews who intern pass all of that on.
