Many a night in all these years I think of you, moved to tears
Many times made me sad because I really miss you Dad.
Now I am old and realize I wish I could apologize
Forever doubting my father’s love, I still pray to the one up above
So many years ago you died I was nineteen and never cried
I detested whenever you took a drink, not once did I ever stop to think
You had your own dragons to fight; they came out almost every night
Dragons you could never slay, you fought them ‘til your dying day
Now you have finally found your peace, please know my love will never cease
For now, I have kids of my own, learned to love from what you have shown
