To my father and my mother –
In my world there is no other
People quite as true or giving,
Or as caring, like you living.

Even through the paths uncharted,
You make sure with friends I’ve parted;
In the troubles and confusion,
You are here without seclusion.

Loving in your ways so many –
Always there with praise to give me,
Giving guidance as intended –
Talking with you is so splendid.

Full of purpose and devotion,
Sending you my deep emotion,
To be yours, it is my pleasure –
Allies that this son does treasure.

By my heart, with love so tender,
That I wish the greatest splendor,
For our clan into the morrow;
Know my oath is without sorrow.
