You always told me to reach for the sky,

To get off my ass and give things a try.

But the sky always seemed so far away

And the only way to get there was out of my way.

But the more I faught the more you faughtback

You tried so hard to keep me on track.

I ignored thepoints you tried to make clear

And forgot to say everything you needed to hear.

The more you tried the more I would stall

I kept going until you quit trying at all.

It wasn't until you died that I was able to see

All you had done and tried to do for me.
