Can you tell me father

Why my tears won't dry

I knew it would happen eventually

But I wasn't prepared when you died

-------------------------------------------

Can you tell me father

The secrets you always knew

The time you kissed away my pain

Like no one else could do

------------------------------

Can you tell me father

What happened in that war?

Why you bottled all your tears

I wish I helped you more

-----------------------------

Can you tell me father

Why did you let go?

I'd hold your hand forever

Harder then you'll ever know

-----------------------------------

Can you tell me father

Why this hurts so bad

I try so hard to just move on

But I can't forget what I had

----------------------------------

Can you tell me father

How you felt when mommy died

I never bothered asking

And I never saw you cry

----------------------------

Can you tell me father

Why no one can understand

They have no idea the pain I feel

And what it's like without ground to stand

--------------------------------------------------

Can you tell me father

Why did you walk away?

You left me here with untied shoes

And nothing more to say.

----------------------------

AN: dedicated to my father. I miss him so much.
