Papa

9/06

Seeing without seeing,
Knowing without knowing,
Bridges to the past,
Eternity has come at last.

Years on the veranda,
Years in your room,
Years in the country,
Gone all too soon.

Life’s frailty,
Life’s curse,
Life’s fruition,
Oh how it hurts.

Pain like I’ve never known,
Came to me last night.
Tears streamed down unable to stop,
Thinking of you and willing you back.

Up in the country,
On Pappy’s land.
There you’ll be,
It is there you stand.
