The Duo

Here's to the duo that raised me as an equal

I look upon them both as treasured friends who make my heart full.

Two opposites working in tandem,

It's about time I sit down and thank them.

There's mother Mary, sweet, sincere, and selfless.

She's a public servant, improving children's lives without rest.

Positive energy is ever-flowing,

As a road-block approaches she just keeps on going.

Then there's my resilient father Pat.

He'll do anything for me at the drop of a hat. 

11th of 12 kids, he knows how to fight

when something he believes in doesn't go right.

Manners, values, beliefs, the keys to happiness

One word to my parents: I'm so incredibly blessed.
