    My parents are the best part of my life, taking all my crap and putting it aside
    Loving me no matter what, just supporting me, taking everything in stride
    The love they have for me can never be measured with any measuring device
    I feel special to call them my parents, to have them in my life.


    My Dad is the coolest man I know, hard on me when I was young,
    Teaching me how to be a man, making sure that I would never be stung
    Later, he softened up and became the one I could talk to about my emotions
    Did I mention he adopted me at 4, and he shows my Mom so much devotion.


    When you look at my Dad, you can’t help but see that he stands up tall
    He’s a very proud man, he’s been the one who has always been the strong wall
    He’s very supportive of me, loves me, and cherishes me and my Mother
    Very few men would ever do that, and I’ll call him Dad for life, not any other


    I love my Dad, and I strive to make him proud, because I like to see the light in his eyes
    When I succeed at life, I see the fire burning in him, and ya, sometimes it makes me cry
    My dad is the greatest man I know, very few people can compare to him
    Love, support, hard when he had to, he made me into the man that I am


    My Mother, without her, I wouldn’t be here, I’m her one and only child
    She was another rock in my life, always there for me through life, even when I was wild.
    As a little child, she quit her job to teach me at home, and took her time teaching me
    She did what she thought was best, and I think she did it right, if people could only see


    My Mom was never very emotional, more logical, but there have been times I’ve seen her cry
    She has been the light in my world for so long, I can never repay her back, no matter how hard I try.
    My Mother is like no other woman I know, She’s been through a lot in life, but she’s full of might.
    Walking out of her parents place in Alaska at 15, in the cold of winter, guitar in hand, I bet that was quite a sight


    If it wasn’t for my Mom, I’d probably have died along time ago, her finding me against all odds in a ravine
    The odds were a billion to one I’d be found, but my spirit cried for my Mom, I was crying to be heard and to be clean
    The spiritual connection we have can never be broken, nor ever be halted
    My Mom is a part of who I am till God calls us back, until then we can never be faulted.


    I love my Parents.

    Time for some reflection, eh Maverick. That's healthy, and you are lucky to have such good caring parents. And thanks to them, you're lucky enough to have the insight to realize it. Are you, or have you thought of passing it down to your progeny yet?

    I have no children to pass down to. I don't know if I have the desire to.

    I think I need to be true to me, and realize I'm the fucking weirdo, the creep, the guy who is to much of a fucking gentleman for any one to relate to.

    Wow Mav, if you haven't already...maybe share these words with your parents? If one of my children wrote something so wonderful, feeling, caring and true to himself...I would hope that they would share it with me!

    I'm so happy that you have the parents that you do and it's obvious that you love them deeply!

    You're a good man my friend!
