CAN YOU SEE ME, FATHER
My thoughts of you are from over forty years past,
Once a reality and a life that was our everyday scene.
Now memories kept alive from a child to a man,
Father, you remain In my heart, I keep you alive.
I can not see you except In my dreaming, closed eyes,
If not for a picture I have to keep your face In my mind.
Can you see me father, have you watched as my life marches on,
I pray that some of the things I’ve done have made you proud.
One day I’ll see your wonderful face and speak of those days long gone,
A different life In heaven, I’m much older now, no longer a child.
Can you see me, father, do you see my face, do you know a son’s name.?
