Ol’ Blue Eyes - For My Dad This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Where are you going, ol’ blue eyes?
What’s your rush?
Got something to do?
Can I come?

I liked having you around to teach me things,
Like when you said, “Loving is more than just diamond rings”
It was cool when you came to my games,
It showed everyone it wasn’t just about your fame

Where are you going, ol’ blue eyes?
What’s your rush?
Got something to do?
Can I come?

Time is a confusing thing, and yours seemed to run out too fast,
Like that bell you talked about that rang before you were in the class
I loved your jokes and weird little songs,
Little did I know I wouldn’t get to hear them for long

Where are you going, ol’ blue eyes?
What’s your rush?
Got something to do?
Can I come?

You taught and you learned,
I listened and yearned
You were always quite intense
When you came to my defense

Where are you going, ol’ blue eyes?
What’s your rush?
Got something to do?
Can I come?

Although you are not here
Your soul will always be near
I love you
And there will never be another one of you

Where are you going, ol’ blue eyes?
What’s your rush?
Got something to do?
Can I come?
