Wish You Were By My Side

I wish I had you by my side
You were the best friend I ever had
Not being able to see you grow as a man
Hurts me inside everyday that goes by

The stories I hear from your friends
Makes me think I missed so much
But we had our own adventures
Before our last long good-bye

I hope you felt my last touch
That last kiss I gave you on your cheek
As you and I alone had our last moment
Just as in life, apart but inseparable

You have all our best stuff with you
Bat, ball, glove, music, pictures
And we have all of your best stuff
Smile, laughter, music, and love

You were a kind, caring man
And I loved you so much for that
I just wish I had one more moment
Just one more to be together

I wanted to be there for you always
I’m sorry I wasn’t there in the end
You know I would have protected you
And kept you safe from harm

Now I bide the time till we meet again
Looking at pictures and listening to your songs
Thinking of the amazing things you would accomplish
Reveling in the man you had become

God has called you home
I don’t know why
But just remember this
I am your dad and you are my son
