The last time I shed tears
Had been about five years
And I’m writing to tell you
I’ve outgrown my childhood fears

I found answers to my numinous questions
I found friends who share my compassion
Some people play with my emotions
Still I live through life and its motions

My success I have ploughed
I stood out from the crowd
As I look at the drifting clouds
I know I’ve made you proud
I’ve loved and I’ve lost
I’ve been double-crossed
They called me names thinking they’d break me
And yet I don’t grow soft

Every time I look in the mirror
All I see is you
I don’t cry any more
Even though
I miss you

I love you Dad
Your Son
