Alexander C. Balcoba- A Poem

My Parents’ Love

I am so blessed
I am so lucky
I am so grateful
For my parents love me.

I am so precious
I am so worth
I am so unique
For my parents mold me to be like this.

I am so honored
I am so privileged
I am so flattered
For my parents’ love is indeed priceless.

My parents’ love is immeasurable
Their love is admirable
Their care is honorable
Their character is venerable.

Oh, my parents you’re the only one
Your strength, your wisdom and your wit
You pursue, you persist, you insist
Because you are my parents, you are the best.

My parents’ love is fantastic
Their faith is not bombastic
Their humility is not sarcastic
Indeed, my parents are terrific
