Tulsa, OK, USA
Here's to the cabinetmaker,
From his one and only son.
Since you've gone my life has changed
And my heart's come all undone.
There is no word to say it
There is no song to tell
But since you've gone and left us
My world's been under spell.
A mystical weave of time and love
A grandeouse design
This mystery of life and death
Not only yours but mine.
For a part of me is gone now
For how long I do not know
Buried beneath the dirt of grave
Like a blanket of cold snow.
There is no way to tell you now
How you made me feel
And I don't want to believe
That all of this is real.
I want to say I love you
Feel you warm arms wrap about me
But I know you're there not here now
And that you are fine without me.
So I'll leave you with this final thought
Before I get too blue
I'll see you when my days are done
And Daddy, I miss you.
Once I was brilliant, now I no longer shine, but the twinkle in my eye speaks of another time.
