where the writers are
God Blessed Us With Angels


You are the storybook readers

And the starry-eyed cheerleaders

Who rocked us to sleep,

And gave us bright futures to keep.


You offered your shoulders to weep upon

And even more often to stand on,

Both comforting and strong,

Judging neither right nor wrong.


The lessons of childhood return,

And it’s easy for us to discern

It’s the moral character you defined,

That we can never leave behind.


God blessed us with angels, tis true,

And in your love we blossomed and grew.

How lucky we are and glad

That you’re our Mom and Dad.
