You were born in the shadow of my demise
That I would not see you grown was no surprise.
I did my best to raise you right
until I went quietly into the night.
I cared for you in your illness and health
Although money was spare, love was my wealth.
No wedding day, nor graduation to see
but meeting your first love was joy to me.
I tried my best to show you warmth and love
I guided you with a velevet and iron glove.
I cry at night knowing I will never see you grey
but I smile inside realizing that we had today.

This is a genuinely touching way of describing a parent's love for their child...even when they know they won't always be around...beautiful...

Thank you for the comments. Trying to convey such a thought is difficult at best.

I'd have said exactly what ac stated....very touching. Unfortunately, not all parents can be with their children at all times....at the very least, you show you cherish every moment you have together...well done.

I'm echoing Sharon on this.
Wherever you are, Bless You.

For all who watch.Dare you say hello? Come in and ask the questions that are on your mind, but spare me your judgement until you truly sipped of me.
