Sorrow troubles my thoughts
when I realize all we're not
nor ever will be in this life

When I was young
I idolized you
now I just grieve

Why did you stop
growing and risking
shriveling in your skin

There's so much
I want to know about you
locked away in your shell

Each choice you made
walled off your voice
'til silence is all that remains

Too painful to broach
or unfold all the past
shrouded in your shame

So in the years you have left
I press forward
you fade upon the horizon

Memories remain of long ago
when you were my dad
and hero was your name

On the other side of this life
on that day
we'll be restored
