Just to make it clearer, my parents are alive, but both of them (and me, too) lost someone they loved very much.

A Poem For Mom And Dad

Perfectly ironed sheets and pillow cases
and her perfumes
always delicious cakes
and her cookies
soldiers that are defeating all little imperfections of this world
Angry and proud woman,
she's not perfect, but she's closer to perfection
than anyone else she has ever met.
always feeling that somewhere, somehow
life made a fool of her.
My mom
denying every weakness of mine
because, who am I to cry over broken toys.
after all, what is one broken toy
when there so much troubles to endure in life.
My mom,
I thought she had a heart of stone.
Her smell, tidy with a touch of rose scent
a window to her soul
delicate with thorns, and blood red,

sweaters at the top drawer
and little chocolates underneath
surprises for my sister and me.
Quiet strength and infinite patience
a piece of bread and honey pouring on it
making perfect stream of circles.
My dad
never doing what he really wanted
but he's happy.
Riding Castaneda's books and meditating
knowing when I'm lying
and pretending that he doesn't know.
My dad
denying my emotions
like it's wrong to feel.
A little boy, grown up in a cruel world of poverty
and ignorance
who had to find out everything on his own.

I'm sorry that God took the one you loved the most
I'm sorry that this world made you cry so many tears.

  This was beautiful.. If this is about the loss of your sister than i am truly sorry for your loss.. sometimes im not so good at guessing on what poems are about.. but parents never truly love one more than the other... they develop a diffrent bond of love for both.. my mom loves both my sister and i immensely but i share more in common with my mom than my mom does with my sister so we share a diffrent bond of love.. love from someone is never second best it is just a diffrent level of it.. i hope i made sense there.. i am never that good at telling things the correct way. but.. aside from what i just said.. i really loved this piece.

  Hmm, maybe I'm taking this differently...but the last two lines:

"I'm sorry that God took the one you loved the most
I'm sorry that this world made you cry so many tears"

I take this as the narrator dying...suicide perhaps. And they are apologizing in retrospect for having hurt their parents. I dunno...maybe I'm taking it wrong...

But it's very well written...nice imagery!

  This poem is good, the lines,

"I'm sorry that God took the one you loved the most
I'm sorry that this world made you cry so many tears"

Is exactly how I felt about my mom (R.I.P) My father and I don't get along too well since him and my mother split, but I like your description of your father, it allowed me to see him the way you did nad your mother sounds like a harding working lady who's very strong and yet very gentle. Keep up the writing.
