For My Parents :)

When God made this world
He made it (I'm sure) for
Wonderful People
People like you-
Mom and Dad :)

For all the love
The warmth
Tenderness and joy
You gave us;
The tears, sorrow
You shared with us...

For the lessons you taught us
The strength you gave us
The independence and faith
You inspired in us...

A prayer for you:
That joy will dog you, always;
That sorrow may be a thing
Of the past;
That you may enjoy the company
Of you great-grand children;
That you may be together
Beyond eternity;
That you may find peace
And may it always be with you...


This, and life's totality
We hope, will be yours, this day

And always...

Our dearest

1 December, 1985


Today, 7 December, is my parents' wedding anniversary. Just rewinding to an old write, to wish them :) The picture is of them, a couple of days after they got married, way back to almost fifty years ago.


  1. That was a nice one..
    truly nice one, Usha

    ofcourse, when it's for our parents we give the best :)


  2. hey usha,
    wishing ur parents a happy anniversary too...
    may they have many more together...

    **When God made this world
    He made it (I'm sure) for
    Wonderful People

    kudos...for such a treasured write...

  3. This is so beautiful :)

    God bless them with many more wedding anniversaries full of joy and love :)

  4. That was so sweet... The perfect gift - words from the heart.

    Warm greetings on this lovely occasion.


  5. Devika, Vinay, Shalu and Karthik,

    Thank you for the gracious words and the generosity of your wishes. I shall convey these, to both of them.

    Indeed, parents are the best, and so we are inspired to do what we can to the best of ourselves for them.. :)

    Thank you.. so very much!

  6. Teacher,

  8. Wishing your parents a very happy anniversary and many many more years of happiness, peace and prosperity!

    Parents, undoubtedly are the most wonderful people ever! But for them, our progress, success and happiness, all of them stand irrelevant and unattainable!

    Good post! Quite a tribute, I must say!

  9. Please do wish your parents on my behalf too...

    ""For the lessons you taught us
    The strength you gave us
    The independence and faith
    You inspired in us... ""

  14. Usha,
    My wishes to your parents on their 'almost' fiftieth anniversary.
    I remember I organised a very grand affair on my parents 25th anniversary a dozen years back. I am glad I did that because my mom passed away a few years later.

  15. Many many wishes...
