I was lost when you walked out the door
I cried for you each day a little more.
No one hears, no one calls,
No one sees because I’m so small.
Monsters come and go as I hide
But in my heart you’re by my side.
The days go by, then months and years
But you are gone and can’t see my fears.
Alone I stand as I walk this earth
I wish you were here to know my worth.
I get up when life beats me down
Still, life is hard without you around.
As time goes on my strength renews
I realize its time to change my views.
I’m a grain of sand on life’s beach
Surrounded by others within my reach.
I know your pain, your wounds I see.
You’re really not so different from me.
I know your heart, I have your genes.
I’ve read your stories, I know your dreams.
The time will come when I see you again,
And then a whole new journey will begin.
Dedicated to my Father that Died July 25, 1980
