the parents that say good morning and sleep tight.
the parents that kiss me goodnight.
the parents that go to my ball game.
the parents that knew me and my brothers by name.
the parents that hold me by the hand.
the parents that try to understand.
the parents that teach me right from wrong.
the parents that will fight to move on.
the parents that cared.
these are the parents i never had.

The author's comments:
i thought not having my parents do these things was normal. as i got older i started to realize that all my friends kissed their parents and said "i love you". i was so scared to bring my friends over my house. i didn't want them to think i was weird. this hurt me more than i care to realize.
