Thirteen Years Gone.
Thirteen years gone
But still in my heart,
New like tomorrow,
Sour like the hurt of a stolen kiss,
Dark, like shadows of loneliness.
I still feel... I know
Everyday the presence of your absence,
I endure the weight
Of the emptiness you left behind,
Thirteen years but still...
Even now still
I, in the silence of every breath
Pray, even if...
Just for a few minutes with you...
I never got the chance to say.
I never got the chance to say I love you.
I never got the chance to show how much I really cared.
I never hoped to say I miss you so much.
I never thought...
I never thought it'll be this soon.
I never knew one can miss one forever.
So much we could have said to each other,
An eternity of things we would have done.
You dreamt for me
And I loved every one,
Though time and fate
Have changed my race
But still I wish.
Still I wish you could see me now.
Can you hear me now...
Where you are?
Many things happened
You never saw,
Things... If you where, it would have been...
They say I took after you.
You must have rubbed on me.
We were close...
If you remember.
I could go on and on.
If you can hear me now...
I miss you... Dad.
We'll see in time,
Keep my space near God dad,
Cos I know you are with him.
Dedicated to my dear dad
