The Bond Between Parents & Children Lasts a Lifetime
It remains unchanged by tie or distance.
It is the purest love –
Unconditional and true.
It is understanding of any situation
And forgiving of any mistake
It is strong enough to withstand
Harsh words and hurt feeling,
For it is smart enough to always
See the love beyond the words.
It is brave enough to always
Speak the truth,
Even when lies would be easier.
It is always there –
Anytime, anywhere –
Whenever it is needed.
It is a gift held in the heart
And in the soul,
And it cannot be taken away
Or exchanged for another.
To possess this love is a treasure
That makes life more valuable.
