Not fair, but what are you supposed to do about it?

A shadow has fallen over me,

hiding my childhood, nothing to see

 

Feel sadness, and sorrow's cold embrace

I still hear your voice, a smile upon your face

 

Nothing I can do, Dad, to change your destiny,

if I could I would set you on the path to free

 

This terrible disease that demands such a toll,

robbed us of so much, keeps you from your goal

 

Unimaginable frustration, as I watched you struggle and fight,

but in the end, I watched the disease steal your inner light

 

A shadow has fallen over all that's to come, and all that ever was

Nothing left to say, Dad, except I love you just because
