If I Could Travel To And Fro

To my Dad...

If I could travel to and fro
The winds of change would meekly blow

And Heaven's Gate, that opened wide
Would stay shut tight, Dad at my side

Our campfires, when the firelight danced
You'd find me safe, 
wrapped in your glance

Upon this path, which trail to take
Close by my side, clear choice you'd make

And when the future seems forlorn
You'll summon Angels, squash the storm

Missteps, success, I know your here
Your steady hand  "jamesy!"  your cheer!

On down the road, around the bend
I know your there!

Dear Dad,

My friend!
