Life wasn't always the way I had wished
words left unsaid by us all everyday.
But I always knew where to turn
--every time I would fall.
And I know now you only desired
--for me to choose the right paths.
To not repeat the same mistakes that you yourself had to face.
It took me so long to learn
--love untaught was impossible to rehearse.
How could you show what hadn't been shown to yourself?
I had to learn to look deep in your heart to receive
--the love that was really there for me.
I thank the dear Lord everyday I awake
--for the gift I received that day.
In our own way and with words unsaid
--all the love that we shared was confirmed.
As you let your guard down and allowed me to soothe your pain,
--my own years of pain disappeared from my heart.
And at that moment my only desire was
--that you could feel the love and adoration
that I feel towards you, my daddy.
And I'll always remember that day, your pain and the love we shared.
And I'll always remember you're up above smiling down on me everyday.
