Remembering...


He didn't teach me how to live
he just lived
and by doing so, showed me how to
when I was a child, everyday I thought, the greatest man on earth
just so happen to be the one I called dad

it never mattered to me who my father was
it mattered to me who I remembered him as
when I'd break the rules, you scolded me
and sometimes hurt in silence as I'd rebel
and continued to love me still

Thanks for words of encouragement
Reaching out whenever i was in need
imagining you then and now
Normal activities of living I no longer can proceed

Strange to see this proud, strong man
Wept silently in tears
I could feel the life inside
and more as time passed by
Reserving each memory in my mind
Remembering you throughout the years
So that the part of my life won't disappear

Father, thanks for giving of yourself lovingly
I am proud of who I known you to be
You really need to know that especially
You will always be alive to me
I will lock you away in my heart
like a pendant worn around the neck
To ensure you'll never be too far

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
