The times I remember
How they make me smile
Running through the house
With nothing but time
Young and full of energy
And you to help tame

How things can change
In just such short time
Running through the house
With you by my side
Now you’re gone
Things have gone wrong

No more mom and dad
Just one or the other
My time with you has now been split
For it has to be even
Some time for you,
Other time for her

You are my dad
And I love you so
For the good times we spent
Have gone by slow
Good memories from the past
From when I was little
You warned me years ago
I just didn’t listen

I’m grown up now
And times have changed
More time for her
And less for you
You were right about when I grow up
I’ll be around less and less

So time for things to change once again
More time for you and less for her
For you are my dad and I love you so
I’ll see you soon so just wait
More memories to come
More memories to stay
The best ones to come
For I am on my way

My dad and I have always been close and when he started telling me the more I grow up the less I'll want to spend time with him I never believed him. Now, unfortunently, it is happening and i want things to change.
