Sara watched you come alive
Scream and shout
Open your eyes

Sara watched you take a step
Fall once more
Try again

Sara watched you ride a bike
Skin your knee
And start to cry

Sara watched you learn to read
Go to school
Start to lead

Sara watched you graduate
And heard the news
Of your wife’s due date

Sara watched you raise your child
Growing older
Give up the wild

Sara watched you then retire
Settle down
Loose the fire

Sara watched you close your eyes
Slip away
Into the skies
