My Father, My Best Friend

You were always such a special man

Hanging out with you, I was a fan

Weekends early, awoke for fishing

To catch a big fish, always wishing

A special something we did before

Twinkies, chocolate milk, from the store

Or at the alley where you did bowl

Goofing off was our only goal

Gathered around on a sunny day

Having so much fun, outside we'd play

Or inside when it was bad weather

Having cat toy fights, all together

You helped me with my paper routes too

Such a kind man, his heart was true blue

You loved to just talk and joke around

And your laugh made such a distinct sound

Your face lit up and your eyes would tear

So full of love and full of good cheer

Your own way is how you chose to live

Though you rarely took, you'd always give

Gave up so much, asked for so much less

Ask it of him, he'd usually say yes

Known by many, and they all loved him

Brightening a room that began as dim

You never did ask too much of me

You took me in and you let me be

I know in your heart that you did care

No matter what, you were always there

It will take long for my heart to mend

Not just my dad, you were my best friend

And sometimes the only friend I had

Far more than just a regular dad

All of those years we spent together

Are some of the best I've had ever

I'm going to miss your laugh and your smile

Inside my mind they're saved there on file

I wanted to do right, make you proud

To show I can stand out from the crowd

It was you that always said I could

You tried to push me to do good

It hurts so much now that you are gone

Life's an adventure to carry on

To be around for many a year

And I just wish that you were still here

Present at the end I did my best

To avert you from this final rest

There was nothing anyone could do

I walked over and said I love you

Looking in your eyes, hand on your brow

And oh, dear dad, how I miss you now
