From a time worth remembering in a world long forgot,
We shared a childhood together and from it I learned quite a lot.
You taught me the gift a sharing, how to love and give of myself,
I taught you so many things, most I hope you'll never forget.
But I want you to know that I miss you,
And that forever I will love you,
I will always be with you,
No matter where you travel to.
You are my children,
No matter where you might roam,
I am your father,
And here you can always find home.
I know that I can never show you,
How much I have loved you right from the start,
And though you're not here my thoughts are with you,
Each day, each hour and beat of my heart.
