I can't call you on the phone
I can't knock on your door
No matter how loud I scream you can't respond
I held your hand as you took your last agonizing breath
You fought with your heart and your soul
you fought for me and to watch my son grow, but you lost..
My son will never know you;
how funny you were
how generous you were
how there was nothing that could stop you from giving me everything I needed and wanted...except this
You won't be able to walk me down the aisle
You won't see me graduate from college
You won't comfort me as life pushes me down
where are you?
I want to hug you and tell you I love you Again
I want sit and have hot cocoa and coffee together
I want to laugh and smile the way only you could make me
I miss you like crazy dad
I just wish I could find you somewhere out there to let you know.
