I had a nice talk with my dad today
he didn't say much cuz that’s just his way

We talked about some things of the past
and how the time seemed to fly by so fast

I told him about great grand kids he didn't know
he said he knew them, he's watching them grow

I asked him to play me his favorite song
he played BEYOND THE SUNSET not a note was wrong

Then as the music filled up my mind
it took me somewhere way back in time

I said, "Dad, I sure do wish you were here."
He said , "I am, son. I'll always be near."

When he said that I let out a sigh
I knew right then there'd be no good bye
