DAD


Two men meet
For the very first time
The younger tells the older
You look so familiar
The older turns away
Not believing what he sees
The eyes that look on him
Are his very own

The older tells the younger
I knew your mother well
I met her years ago
Before you were born
The younger smiles and says
I know where I've seen you
Mom kept a picture of you
On the table beside her bed

Tell me something
Good or bad
Only one thing
It's all that I've had
Tell me something
Good or bad
Only one thing
Can I call you...

The two men say goodbye
As they walk from eachothers lives
The older says to himself
I will never forget this day
The younger hails a cab
But before he gets in
He turns one last time
And says to the man
Goodbye dad

Tell me something
Good or bad
Only one thing
It's all that I've had
Tell me something
Good or bad
Only one thing
Can I call you dad
