I will never forget the day,
That you suddenly went away.
I never knew that it could come so quick,
You were never ever even sick.
I was merely a boy, barely eighteen,
No experience, still so green.
Just starting to learn from you,
The things in life I had to do.
Why hadn’t I listened before,
Thinking you just a big ole bore.
Now I try to copy the way,
You got things done every day.
If I could have one more chance,
To learn from you, life’s big dance.
I would appreciate every moment we had,
Because I love and miss you, Dad.
