Reflection – Ode to my Parents

Reflection – Ode to my parents

Both of you, I love the most

should the witness be

the Father, Son, or the Holy Ghost

Given to me you have

everything and more

Not only time and support

but also every gift and chore

Been to me you have

the convention and at odds with trend

not only mom and dad

but also sibling and friend

Shown me you have

all of this and some of that

Hopefully making me

a balance of extremes

Your purest gift has been

to make me for love and

to chase the wildest of dreams

So distance and borders

may appear as deflection

but the truest way I can pay it back

is by being your reflection
