Cross My Heart

It's my usual night on my way to bed
Praying to my God above as I lay my head
But on my way as I turned down the lights
I couldn't help but notice your picture tonight...

The pain in my heart brought me to both my knees
Cause I never stopped to look at the man before me
I kept running ahead from that old wooden frame
Afraid to see your eyes and feel the rain it brings...

So, now I am down, Dad, looking up at you
So, let me say all the things I've always wanted to
You must know that I loved you more than words can say
And, Dad, you could have had my heart- any day...

Cross this heart of mine from which you made
I promise to love you forever from so far away
I want you to know now what a blessing you've been
My father, my whole world and my most kindest friend...

I almost forgot that look you held in your eyes
And just staring at them I slowly die inside
Look at me, Dad, I can't turn away at all
I'm down from the power of a memory hung here on my wall...

You have never known what I felt for you, Dad
You were the gold that only I was lucky to have
And you were every color of a rainbow that has ever been seen
And cross my broken heart, Dad, you were everything to me...

I can feel the year that you and I have lived apart
With looking at this black and white picture that's stolen my heart
And while a million tears fall to the floor below
They say I miss you, Dad, more than you'll ever know...

So, cross my heart and with the sign of my hand
Know I'll be back someday and kneeling again
But until I'm stronger, Dad, and I can stand the rain
I leave my love to the photo in that old wooden frame...

Have you ever known the color grey when the nighttime finds you weak
I have, I've walked that road each time; that's where my angel sleeps
