Mom and dad, I’m home

We’re busy

Can’t you see?

I will watch TV

On the phone, killing time

Video Games, I’m fine

Mom and dad pleasing me

With every gift I see

At the door, someone knocks

Come in, do sit down

No time for you now

Busy with our wants

Busy with our needs

Ignore the guest



Time flies

Children grow

Loved children 

Graduated children

Selfish children

Rude children

Raised on what they wanted

Not on what they needed

What awaits?

Parents wonder

Ignored for many years

The guest is still there

Waiting patiently, 

What you needed 

Christ, loving you 


Is it too late?
