Relationships don't always work when one person or the other has a kid.
When you found out my mom had me you could have left, but you never did.
You dated my mother for some time, and then you made her your wife.
That's when our friendship started. and you became a big part of my life.
Although you were my step-father, you always treated me as if I were your own son.
When I was younger, we spent lots of time together. I remember having so much fun.
You taught me to be a great sportsman, we spent a great deal of time outdoors.
Sometimes we would walk so much that my feet would feel like two great big sores.
You told me to take pride in everything I do, and to always stand up for what was right.
You said not to go around starting trouble, but to never back down from a good fight.
Sometimes we didn't see eye-to-eye, and you would always give me the the third degree.
Only to make up later, after we showed each other how hard-headed we both could be.
You told me to love and appreciate the people that matters, because in time they will disappear.
In the blink of an eye my life changed, and when I looked around you were no longer here.
I think of you every day and sometimes I'm overcome with tears and sorrow.
It doesn't seem fair life goes by so fast, here today and gone tomorrow.
You're no longer here with us, but I know you're in a much better place.
I can only imagine that you entered into heaven with a great big smile on your face.
The year you passed I didn't see you as often, and we kind of lost touch.
I wish I would have been there more, but I want you to know I love you so very much.
Your time here on earth may be over, and to heaven you have gone.
There will always be a special place in my heart for my dear friend John.
