A Christmas Gift

A gift to my parents this past Christmas. 

A Christmas Gift
Dedicated to Mom and Dad
Two people dedicated to creating life
Not just giving it
Two people shaping, molding life
More than just giving it
The role of a parent is more
Duty dictates (demands?) diligence
Watching, guiding, pushing, prodding
What can only a child know?
The limits are set
The bounds are given
Life begins, but it’s all livin’
How much freedom is mine?
Respect, obey, but why?
Fear? -No
Duty? -No
Love- from them, for them
An outstretched hand
A warm embrace
A firm command
A whisper of grace
Not everything was great
But it did the trick
I am who I am
Thanks to some saints, not Nick
Two people dedicated to creating life
Not just giving it
Two people shaping, molding life
More than just giving it
