Happy Anniversary Poem to Mom & Dad...


23 YEARS! ! How time does fly! !

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to our Dear Parents;
Bill and Vi.

Mom first met Dad when he was just 38;
And his only pleasure was drinking beer and
hopping a freight.

It all started one night when Mom, a mere 26;
Stopped at the Metro Club with her sister-in-law,
Barbara, for sodas and chips.

From across the bar their eyes met in the
smoke-filled haze;
Mom's full of stars-Dad's all beer-glazed.

Their love soon blossomed and Dad's heart
was aflame;
For he knew he'd found his true love at last,
His one and only 'SugarBabe.'

Dad true to his word, took Mom away from it all;
And with three kids and a falcon they headed
for Duval!

And all through the years their love has been
strong;
Even when Mom's right and Dad's always
wrong!

Who could ask for more loving parents who have
struggled and strived;
to raise five hooligans and still manage to survive!

We all love you Mom and Dad, each in our own
different way;
And the loving memories throughout the years
in our hearts will forever stay...

Always and Forever;
Debbie, Bonnie, Robin, Chris & Pat

    good thought about writing for your parents.generally most parents are great and children are naughty when young.but love entwines all family members of a home as harmony.the beauty of a happy family!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Lawson


The old year went, and the new returned, in the withering weeks of drought,
The cheque was spent that the shearer earned,
