Q1: What is your Name?
up was so very special,
always had a warm home and plenty to eat,
mother and father to provide for us,
the secret "Long John" as a special treat.
will always remember the front porch,
on the swing when the sun was past its best,
chatting with a passing neighbor,
simply relaxing and having a rest.
was always a good feeling,
you sat there when the chores were done,
to think about your achievements,
got to enjoy the evening sun.
you should enjoy yours,
you've toiled and worked so very hard,
been centre stage all our lives,
you have undoubtedly starred !
weren't rich by worldly standards,
we've had riches that money can't buy.
do we show our gratitude ?
don't know - but we'll give it one good try:
have so many wonderful memories,
that's one of the reasons for this rhyme,
we might try and remember a few,
we've had so many memorable times.
aroma that provokes childhood memories;
we love the smell of Mom’s baking bread,
get me a glass of milk and pass the butter please,
are delicious words that I've just said !
wonderful Sunday afternoons,
Grandma and Grandpas with the whole family,
lovely time to look forward to,
an exciting and happy place to be.
had such great times with our horses,
many magical moments its hard to decide,
rented pasture, the Belgians, the Wagon Trips,
just how much fun was a trail ride?
certainly knows how to make a quilt,
are among the grandchildren's treasured keepsakes,
stitch crafted with love and care,
simply has all the love that it takes.
certainly has been productive in her time,
she is one of the best cooks in this land,
if you grow within a square mile of home,
either get baked, cooked or canned !
farmed in the early days,
later he also drove the school bus,
for his crops as they grew,
looking out for each of us.
then worked for the County,
roads and clearing snow,
a treat to take him lunch in the summer,
he’d take the children home when the bus couldn't go.
the world is in troubled times,
it should take a leaf out of your book,
should look at what has made your marriage a success,
then it should take another closer look.
you have so much love for each other,
of course, you've loved us the most,
so as these lines come to an end,
you both - we'd like to raise a toast.
to you Mom and Dad,
we'd like to say this ALOUD,
you, we love you so very much,
Mom and Dad - you've done us proud.
life can never be perfect,
there's been both good times and bad,
no matter what challenge arose,
always relied on the faith that you had.
didn't realize how lucky we were,
we had treasures both big and small,
large family with so much love,
guess you could say we had it all.
from The Big Kids and The Little Kids,
with this poem we proudly unite),
like to say a very big thank you,
for being our guiding light.
deserved your time on the swing,
that evening sun together,
know that we're so proud of you.
love you, always and forever.

Bev kindly replied:
"My parents really thought the poem was great; Dad told me multiple times that he thought it was just great. The Pastor from the local Lutheran church who asked the blessing on the meal at the celebration really played right into the 'swing' theme as he has visited with my parents while they were out sitting in the swing. He thought that the poem was a wonderful tribute to my parents.
Thank you so much for all your effort in getting this poem written. I don't have any objections to you publishing it but will get back to you regarding changing names."
