MOMMY & DADDY
Mommy and Daddy look at all who
pass by, hoping it’s you..
and wanting to cry.
Remembering the years of wonderful
times, making farmyards together
and blowing the dandelions.
Mommy and Daddy carry on with their lives,
waiting patiently for you to arrive.
No one is coming to our home
that you left.
Mommy and Daddy wish things could go back
to the time before you were called to rest.
Happy go lucky those were the days,
but changes have come and we must go on.
Mommy and Daddy will never be at peace,
until they know the reason you
were chosen from all the rest,
to go and sit beside God in eternal rest.
Mommy and Daddy
talk to you each day,
Hoping you can hear them
and feeling closer to you then.
Mommy and Daddy miss your
funny little quirks and
all the mischief you used to do.
Talking funny and laughing too.
Mommy and Daddy will always
wait for the day that they
will see you again.
