Remembering Mom and Dad

Rose and Jim Adams
May 28, 1902 - April 16, 1974 ..... July 11, 1901 - April 16, 1978

 

This sixteenth day of April is
like a warm summer's day.

Not long ago was frigid cold;
spring thoughts seemed far away.

This date, so long ago,
took my parents one by one;

And never again did I believe
this day would bring the sun.

My angel Mom is singing -
I hear her sweet and clear;

And Dad is making flowers grow
in the garden he held dear.

Memories of them will never fade
and together they must be

Angels in heaven's garden -
watching over me.
