My Mom & Dad
I know that I loved my Mom and Dad.
His name was Les and she is Glad.
The love theyÃ‚Â’d shared had long since gone.
So living with them was not much fun.
They would fight and ague with all their might
We kids were scared both day and night.
Mom had a mind full of demons and ills.
The doctors proscribed her with addictive pills.
The pills they made the anger raise more.
So Dad would walk out and slam the door.
They did not divorce till us kids were all grown.
So one by one we packed up and left home.
DadÃ‚Â’s been dead now, many a long year.
And MomÃ‚Â’s confined to a wheelchair.
Glad now lives in a nursing home.
Where sheÃ‚Â’s well cared for and not alone.
This sad tale has no sad end, for she now gets visits.
And I get photos taken and sent from a kind, caring friend.
