Lyrics

Reconciliation

Written By: Douglas Retherford

I was shocked to see him
So helpless so weak so down
He seemed a bit more lively
Oh Dad the pain you must have felt

Seems like the years had passed us by
One more scene for the memory
Our eyes filled with tears
Erased all the years
Knowing he would chase the light

He got to say I'm sorry
I got to say all right
He gripped my hand so tightly
I sat there with him all night

Seems like years had passed us by
One more scene for the memory
He got to smile
I had to cry
I swear I saw an eagle fly by

He said goodbye this morninng
I called my brother.....silence
Our eyes filled with tears
Erased all the years
Knowing he had gone to the light

Seems like years had passed us by
One more scene for the memory
No more pain for Daddy's resting
He'll always be by my side
