7. One Last Ride
I wish I could go back in time
To tell you how much I love you.
I wish I gave you more hugs,
And even do that gay thing in which a dad kisses his son.
I wish you could see me now
To show you how much I’ve grown up.
I’ve given ‘em hell, Dad.
And now it’s time for one last ride.
I now call you across the distant beyond
Safe in your arms, as your body sleeps
Across the eternal sea,
Your light glimmers the rippling waters.
Dear Dad, I love you,
And I’m glad we got to share this one last ride.
