Untitled Original-For Dad...

Recommended Posts

Guess I'm on a roll...although this one is rather personal. My father died a horrid death 5 years ago...guess I'm still dealing with it, as we all do...heh made my sister cry anyway so I suppose tthat's a good reaction.

Untitled

Will we sit and cry today

Now that he is gone?

Our father, our protector,

The one we leaned upon.

He is in a better place

That's what they always say,

It doesn't matter anymore,

His pain has gone away.

I know that it fades,

But it's never gone.

This man of our lives,

Was always so strong.

Went fro a working man,

up from the dawn.

To 6 weeks of agony,

Then just gone...

He didn't want to be alone,

Without her half a man.

Can't blame him for leaving us,

I'm sure no one can.

Suffered so badly,

I prayed him to die...

He lingered in this world of ours

Then a final goodbye.

Seeing they that were not there

Not seeing we in such despair

Time for his book to end,

Father, Protector, Provider, My Friend.

V.D.P. 02/09 (For Dad.)

Wow Dawn they are some lyrics! Brought a lump to my throat just reading it. Very sad, but your love and loss shines through. Outstanding.

Thanks Carol- I wasn't sure if changes were needed for others who've not gone through such as this to understand?

I appreciate all the feedback!!!

Thanks Kenny...

You know it only took like 5 minutes...I watched a stupid movie, ok it was good but so realistic, it brought back a lot of memories of the last few days with my dad. Its so hard to watch someone you've always seen as larger than life, 6ft tall and bullet proof, fade away to nothing.

LoL I couldn't write fast enough!!

I can relate, my father's knockin on that door now... I'm not looking forward to this one bit, just hope it's quick and painless for his sake..he's had to suffer thru the last 50 or so years... since my birth come to think of it{lol}. Sometimes life's experience's are easy to write out but most of the time...ah... well, we have to enjoy it or we wouldn't attempt to express anything in our lyrics.

Ilet my husband read this last night and he made some valid points on how it was written and slight changes that could be made to make it work better (I knew I liked that guy for some reason lol)

Anyway I’m working the rewrite of this as well...I was gonna go ahead and post, but my font is messed up (obviously!) and can’t stand to read or write like this...what button did I push?!?!?:dunno::brickwall:

Six Weeks

Always there for each of us

The one we leaned upon

Will we sit and cry today

Now that he is gone?

He didn't want to be alone

Without her half a man

Can't blame him for letting go

I'm sure that no one can

A hardworking man

Up with the dawn

Six weeks of agony, six weeks too long...

He suffered so much

I prayed him to die

He lingered in this world of ours

Before he said goodbye

Seeing They

That were not there

Not seeing us

In such despair

Six weeks of agony, six weeks too long...

This hurt in our hearts

Is always so strong

It is said that it fades

But never is gone

He is in a better palce

That is what they say

It doesn't matter anymore

His pain has gone away

Six weeks of agony, six weeks then gone...

It was time was for his book to end

Father, protector, provider, friend.

Ok I think this is a final...
