This is a piece that I wrote about my Mum and Dad and how they mean the world to me. Even all the riches in the world could never replace the love I have for my Mum and Dad, my best friends. It's important to let them know how much they mean to you and be sure to tell them that you love them often... This is for you Mum and Dad.

Without you,I wouldn't be the person I am today,

The love and affection that you have always showed,

Has forever remained deep within my heart,

And even now that I'm older, your love and support still continues to flow.

 

Without you, I wouldn't be the person I am today,

You showed me what was right and what was wrong,

You taught me the meaning of being good,

Your lessons and words of advice will remain with me lifelong.

 

Without you, I wouldn't be the person I am today,

You have taught me to be polite and have manners,

You have taught me to respect my elders,

You have shown me the things in life that truly matter.

 

Without you, I wouldn't be the person I am today,

You have always been there in my times of need,

Always having my best interests at heart,

Always seeing my potential, in me you have always believed.

 

Without you, I wouldn't be the person I am today,

You're always ready with kind words and a gentle hug when this world gets tough,

You give me the strength to go on when I feel weak,

You give me that one important thing I always cherish...Your love.

 

Without you, I wouldn't be the person I am today,

You have given me the foundations upon which I can build,

You've done an incredible job at raising me,

From you, I have in me goodness and morality instilled.

 

Without you, I wouldn't be the person I am today,

No matter how hard I try, nothing can ever repay all that you've done for me,

The lessons you've taught me, the love and support you've shown throughout,

You're both truly amazing parents you see!

 

But I do not see you purely as parents,

You're my Mum and Dad but also my best friends,

Without you, I simply wouldn't be the same person,

Even if sometimes we drive each other around the bend.

 

So this is for you Mum and Dad,

For those who ask I will gladly say,

That you are my sunshine in the rain,

Because without you, I wouldn't be the person I am today.
