Just thought I’d let you know

Where are you come home
A choked voice on the phone
And I am the sound of comfort
Little do they know
For all that I show
That my heart is sinking under
Hands are cold
Too young to feel old
and these racing thoughts they escape me
but please be alright if just for tonight
because losing you it might break me
if it wasn’t enough to live through this once
we know weve all been here before
I dread the day when you’ll go away
And there will not be a once more
My optimistic comments betray my pessimistic thoughts
But it is my job to be the rock
I’ll take the weight upon my shoulders
I was born a family’s boulder
It reminds me of that hospital scene
Where you turned blue and I turned green
Fear locked me in place
As Death radiated your face
It was almost the end
I wont let it happen again
So I’ll be searching high and low
Until your dead I’m not letting go
I’ll climb the tallest mountains
Or run naked through the snow
I love you dad, just thought I’d let you know
