Pin It

Thank You 

I’ve sat and sat
And tried to think
And get those thoughts
Down here in ink.

To thank you now
For all those years
Of wiping buns
And drying tears.

Our son spent time
And hours there
Whose pain was eased
By nurses care.

And so for you
Tonight this note
From sons and daughters
Now remote.

Thanks and thanks
And thanks again
A small tribute
From heart and pen.
