Last Days With My Dad


You adopted us giving love
A mom & Dad & star above
We grew with a future of our own
Never left to do it alone

Then it happened last year
When you fell
We all rushed to be there
As you went through hell

I felt I was at a loss
As you laid there & tossed
You, holding on saying goodbye
Days later, you’re still alive

Back & forth you came
There was so much pain
Finding out who you are
As my tears begin to fall
Last days with my dad
I never really understood you
Feeling so deep & sad
Now I really do…..
