FOR MY LATE FATHER - On Father's Day
From My Heart....
I decided to write from my heart today. Not much thought but a beat over and over again.
Like the rush of a song, I think of you every day.
I often wonder what you do up there? Are you swingin to some great band?
Are you singin like a happy man? Do you still wear your hat? I always think about that.
All I wanted to say today is "thank you" for being you, "thank you" for being true.
It is because of you that I am who I am. It is because of you I can bewitch when I can.
I can sing from the heart and write all sorts of words and keep you close in my mind, when I feel I'm not heard.
I can love through my heart and write it all down.
I can feel passion deep inside and have fun with a clown.
I do love to entertain you know, you did teach me well.
But it is in the words that I write that have the most to tell.
I will always think of you when I feel joy and pain.
I will always be you when the world goes insane.
Up on the hill in a house full of glass and a heart that will sing through all of the ash.
