i cannot feel circles and circles i have pretended lost beneath voices of familiar faces crossing tears broken strings like a child release me stop asking these questions tonight he saw me let it go pictures of you magic kisses i have walked down these roads i always wanted to believe there were times i thought i knew it all hollow fears i'm not waiting for you take me back tell me stories i've tapped into a perosonality pretend to see me through my eyes notice me for one fucking time just tell me to stop another story if you told me what to say i want to wash away

there were times i thought i knew it all
when i thought i could not fall
there were times i turned to you
for advice to carry me through
youíve taught me to listen
to speak with words not spoken
youíve instilled in me dreams
though far they may seem
iíll forever reach, stretch, and climb
mirroring constantly what you made mine
i look far and wide
feeling you as my guide
my world exists because of you
tucking, throwing, and somersaults too
these are memories as a child
moments that last more than awhile
these are the precious times
the soft spoken thrills
the hard silent falls
you are who you are today
because of what history made
donít ever lose sight
when times arenít all right
days move ahead
even oneís that you dread
just remember the moments
the small pauses of time
remember the life that you so much made mine
daddy i love you more than words can say
daddy howís life treating you up till today

daddyís 55th birthday
