Another Side Of My Parents - Poem by Biff McGuire

Through reflections of youth and the time on Dads knee
The hunger subsided from Mom feeding me
All my years not to worry of future to be
Is a side of my parents I was too young to see

A firm hand mistaken, for anger back then
Ignorance thinking that hurt couldn’t mend
And knowing now, they had my back in the end
Is the side of my parents I now see as friends

Black and white photos with big goofy smiles
Haircuts and clothing that’s so “out of style”
Times with my family, if just for a while
The side of my parents I seen as a child

In a world that’s expanding and nothing is “free”
I’ll show thanks for blessings and time spent with thee
As age and sore joints are revealing to me
A side of my parents I don’t wish to see
