Let's Talk of Many Things

A parent is a wondrous thing
They put up with oh so much
From crack of dawn they toil for us
Our childhood gone in a rush

We take for granted their love and care
And think of them as immortal
Not realizing that one day
They'll journey through the portal

And then one day as they get old
Some wisdom, a pearl a gem
Has been granted from above
They are us and we are them
