Dad

He showed me the way, he taught me how, to live life and to be free.
He never prejudged, he never controlled, he showed me how to be me,

Now time has gone by and he is no longer, the person that I used to see,
For something has taken his spirit away and left him a shadow of what he use to be.

He wanders around in a place full of people, he hardly knows they are there, 
he can`t do that much for himself anymore.  he would die in this world without  care.

But he is still here,I saw in his eyes the man that I once knew,
 just lost and alone, living a life so different to me and to you. 
He looks at my face and he knows who I am as then he begins to smile.
And we are together father and son if only for a short while.

We will have a small chat about what I don`t know, I will share some pictures and tea. 
And then we will hug as I turn to go and he returns to his world without me.

He showed me the way, he taught me how, to live life and to be free.
And no matter what happens in his life or mine he will always be special to me.
