Father's Song

Everything I ever wanted
Ever fear I once confronted
Every handshake with a secret
Every dream if I could keep it

Every idea with no making
Every chance I've ever taken
And so I let go...

Is this choice in our possession?
Or is it some grand discretion?
Is all meaning so subjective?
Is all logic ineffective?

And now that you here
It is all so very clear
That to live is to dry
The tears from your eyes...

Please don't let the shadows chase you
Let the universe embrace you
Let my regrets direct you
Let my weaknesses protect you

The only value of our worth
Is to put our love to verse
And so don't let go
