you were all that mattered . . .
You were once a friend and father,
then my world was shattered . . .
wishing you were somehow near . . .
Sometimes it seemed if I just dreamed,
somehow you would be here . . .
knowing that I never would . . .
Dreaming of you won't help me to do
all that you dreamed I could . . .
cold and monumental,
seem, for you the wrong companions -
you were warm and gentle . . .
Too many years fighting back tears . . .
Why can't the past just die . . .?
knowing we must say goodbye . . .
Try to forgive, teach me to live . . .
give me the strength to try . . .
No more gazing across the wasted years . . .
Help me say goodbye.
Help me say goodbye!
