Through My Eyes

I saw someone the other day, I think you know who he is,
I don't know him that well, but I wish that I did,

It got me thinking, what if, I don't get to see him again?,
Do you think he'd know, that he's still my best friend?,

He's a really smart guy, he's more selfless than any man I know,
He'd bend over backwards for anyone, he gives people hope,

He's forgiving, and kind, and gives everyone, the benefit of the doubt,
Friend, family, or a stranger, he's not bias, he'll help anyone out,

He's old, with plenty of memories, and fewer regrets,
He'll forgive almost anything, but he won't forget,

I've learned a lot from him, even though, I don't know him that well,
Very pleasant man, and he always has a story to tell,

He may seem tough on the outside, for those who don't know,
But inside he's filled with compassion, straight down to the bone,

Full of advice, and if you don't want it, you'll get it still, he don't care,
But if he does anything, he tries his very best, to be fair,

I'm told he once was a lot different, but it's hard to believe,
Because I've never seen him any other way, since I was three,

That's good though, he's put his demons behind him,
He's found himself peace, now with God there beside him,

No one chooses, how life turns out, or what God has in mind,
But I know if I end up like him, I'll be just fine,

He's my one piece of evidence, that it's true, people can change,
I promise you, Dad, one day, when I'm ready, I'll do the same
