Father’s Song

The road was long

The journey into the night tough

So many we have lost along the way

Yet so many we have in turn gained

Though we split at the last junction behind

You got taken away when I needed you so bad

You were my standing shoulder

A rock I could rest upon

A water I drank

But like the god who flew too close to the sun

You left – gone too soon, so sudden

You will be missed

I will carry on still

With your grace, your love

Someday we will meet again

In time I will let go of this pain

Ever to walk tall in your shade

Until then, rest father. Rest.
