Obituary of Bijan Zare-Parsi

Our Father kept a garden.

A garden of the heart;

 He planted all the good things,

That gave our lives their start.

He turned us to the sunshine,

And encouraged us to dream;

Fostering and nurturing 

The seeds of self-esteem. 

And when the winds and rain came,

He protected us enough; 

But not too much because he knew 

We would stand up strong and tough.

His constant good example, 

Always taught us right from wrong;

Markers for our pathway that will last a lifetime long.

 We are our Fathers garden, 

We are his legacy. 

Thank you Dad, We love you.
