A Father, A Papa, A Friend

I’m here today with a few words to say,

about a Father, a Papa, a friend.

And in these lines of simple rhymes

I hope your hearts can mend.

Your hearts are sad and you feel so bad

as you feel this mournful pain.

You’ll need time to heal

so you can feel some happiness again.

Remember your Dad and the joy he had

in all the things he used to do.

He was a farming lad and trucking dad

Even rode a rodeo or two.

He loved to jive and he loved to drive

to be a trucker it was his call.

From chunk trucks to dump trucks

by Gawd he drove them all.

From lacing skates to crossing home plates

he was a sportsman through and through.

The love of the game, some would claim

he’s passed it on to you.

There’ll be days ahead where tears you’ll shed,

and you’ll think you won’t make it through

but cherish the things your memory brings

and then you won’t feel so blue.

As time goes by your tears will dry,

your heart will slowly mend,

and in a while you’ll begin to smile

for the pain will surely end.

And when comes the day you’re taken away

from this world to another plain,

with God’s great grace, you’ll be embraced

by your father once again.
