HANDS OF TIME

Updated on January 27, 2010

TELL THEM THAT YOU LOVE THEM

IF I COULD TURN BACK THE HANDS OF TIME

WHAT MANY THINGS I WOULD CHANGE

LIKE THE TIME WHEN I WAS JUST A BOY

AND I STOLE MY BEST FRIENDS TOY

OR MAYBE THE TIME WHEN I WAS A TEEN AND

TENDED TO BE A LITTTLE BIT MEAN

OR THE TIME I TOOK MY FATHERS CAR

JUMPED THE HIGHSCHOOL PARKING LOT

CURB, TORE THE MUFFLER OFF AND GOT STUCK

AND WHAT DID I TELL HIM WHEN I CAME HOME?

WITH THE MUFFLER IN THE BACK

I HIT THE SPEED BUMP GOING TO FAST

I GUESS I SHOULD HAVE LET UP ON THE GAS

THING'S LIKE THESE I WISH I COULD CHANGE

BUT MOST OF ALL I WOULD HAVE TOLD MY FATHER

HOW MUCH I LOVED HIM, DAY IN AND DAY OUT

AS I GREW OLDER AND HAD A FAMILY OF MY OWN

IT SEEMED LIKE THERE WAS NO TIME FOR HIM

MY HEART HAD GROWN COLD

AND NOW THAT HE'S GONE

THESE THINGS I CAN NEVER TELL HIM

HOW WHAT A GREAT AND CARING FATHER

HE REALLY WAS AND WHAT A WONDERFUL

GRANDFATHER HE WAS AS WELL

HE HELPED AND CARED FOR ME

WHEN I WAS A TROUBLED TEEN

HE WAS THERE FOR ME AND MY FAMILY

UNTIL THE VERY END

LIFE IS TO SHORT TO MAKE THESE MISTAKES

IF YOUR PARENTS ARE STILL ALIVE

TELL THEM YOU LOVE THEM DAY IN AND DAY OUT

DONT WAIT UNTIL IT'S TO LATE AND THEY ARE GONE

CHERISH EVERY MOMENT THAT YOU HAVE WITH THEM

I SHOULD HAVE SAID IT THEN,BUT I SAY IT NOW

I LOVE YOU DAD, YOU WERE THE GREATEST

IN MEMORY OF MY FATHER FRANK HOOSIER

      I have so much respect for the dead. They conqoure it, it is the greatest achievement and we will all follow them. But they have made it! The made it throught the land of the dead.

      Many Blessings to you,
