I see things much more different than then
Now that I’m an old man, older than him
Recall a few wrongs, all are forgiven
Due more for the man he was from within
Seemed as if he always let me down
Expectations not reasonable or sound
What rules did I know or were tightly bound?
What wisdom did I have, by others found?
What I thought selfish was really his say
Helped so often, can’t possibly repay
His love ne’er wavered, not even a day
I’d like to have him back to walk a way
To share my apology over a brew
And finish my time with, Dad, I love you
