When that was real and time suddenly slowed,
I stood alone, I wondered, I couldn’t hold
my own, I needed a shoulder, somewhere to talk,
couldn’t imagine the fear in every step I would walk.
The blur of what was seemingly important just
minutes before, became a trivial memory of dust.
When I look in your eyes, I only know I have a want
to be by your side, to hold you, to be your gallant.
I cried a little bit today when later I heard the news,
I didn’t know that suddenly my life would speak blues.
We’re fortunate to know our lives have brought us here
in a place where love and time and passion lives so near.
I look at you my beautiful son and wish that any fear,
might realize delightful relief in the eyes of a single tear.
