He was wild and strong, our elder
 We learned from him
I remember him in his youth
 We all have some one like that
45 years later
 He is a shell of his former self
Mountains we climbed as we hunt
Treating me like a son
 Some times better then your own father
We all have some one like that
 Teaching us how short life really is
Ive had time to share some of his life
 I learned joy,fear,respect,
 Learned that what men do is'nt always right
While he is here he will never walk alone
 For I will be there as he was for me
We all have some one like that
 So take the time to absorb the memories
Hold them tight 
 For some times that is all we have left

We all have some one like that
