I’ve had a rough couple of weeks. Finances, relationships, family and school can just pile up sometimes. I often find myself being angry at the world, and all of its inconsistencies. Through all of the unseen circumstances, I’ve understood that I can credit the consistency in my life to my parents, as they are devoted and steadfast. This is dedicated to you, mom and dad.
Throwing balls and frisbees in the yard Calling you ‘cause I’m locked out of my car Hosing off the sand on our feet Hugs and goodbyes when we leave Taught us how to love and not to fear To wait until we’re grown to have a beer That life can break you down and isn’t fair But mama’s always covered us in prayer Riding wheelers in the back ‘20 Muddy hands and holes in our jeans You came to every game we played And walked out your love for us every day Taught us to do whats right, not easy To respect the ones we hold to a high degree Taught us to say goodbye to old dogs And when we don’t know where to go, go find who you are Writing you these words from a new room Wishing I could be right there with you It's always in your voice that I hear “Bigger, braver, stronger” in my ear It’s because of you that I can be Leading the life that’s meant for me From ten second tidies for that mess To telling all my friends the jokes dad said All of who I am is thanks to you I love you and miss you, and I’ll see you soon Twizzlers, popcorn, and watching little house in our little home Knowing that you’ve had our backs, wherever we go Raised on the Bible and the “Man in Black” You poured into us, never asked us for it back Teachers to us when we were young, and now you’re a friend to me You were exactly who we needed you to be
