Thank You Poem

This is a poem I wrote for my parents after a big fight we had. It was Mother's Day and I didn't have any money to buy my mom a gift so I decided to write her something and put it in a homemade card. This is what I came up with.

A Poem For My Parents

© Erin McGinnis
I know sometimes I don't act like it
I don't give you all that I should give
But I want you to know that I love you
And will for as long as I live

I whine, I beg, I lie
I act like such a brat
You deserve more from me
But I won't even give you that

I know I'm hard to deal with
But still I don't change my ways
I promise you now that I will
Starting on this very day

I promise you I will work harder
I promise you I will try
I feel bad for all the trouble I have given
In the years that have gone by

I yell, I cry, I scream
In arguments I have caused
I don't know how much stress I bring
When complaining about my wants

I wish I could take it back
I wish I could change all that I've wronged
I wish I could show just how much you mean to me
Before that opportunity is gone

I know I've grown up quickly
Quicker than you'd wish
I'm almost seventeen now
I'm only just realizing this

I'm sorry for everything Mom
Dad, this includes you, too
But if I could tell you anything
Just know that I love you.

I know sometimes I don't act like it
I don't give you all that I should give
But I want you to know that I love you
And I will for as long as I live
