Forty Four Septembers
Forty four Septembers gone by,
and they are still walking side by side.
Through darkness and light, he’s held her so tight
Never doubting their love, him so brown, her so white.
They had a sweet daughter, (who yes, became me).
The two of them now, were forever all three.
They gave her the world, the stars and the trees.
They taught her to be a good human being.
They gave her the wings to make her own way.
For which she knows she could never repay.
Now she is grown with a love of her own.
Their family of three has certainly grown.
Since the nest has been empty, they have made their way too.
With life’s ups and its downs, always making it through.
They still love to hold hands on cold starry nights.
Always appreciating the good in their life.
It has never been easy, each has been hard to please,
But at the end of the day, she is his squeeze.
Forty Four Septembers gone by.
Where ever they go, they will walk side by side.
Happy 44th Anniversary to my sweet mom and dad. I love you and miss you. Hope you are having a wonderful day together. This blog’s for you!
