We sat in the garden for a while,
Talking and enjoying the view,
I started crying for some reason,
I honestly didnít know what to do.

My dad said, ďDonít cry, itís okay,Ē
I knew something was wrong,
I had never cried like that,
And usually Iím very strong.

I pushed my dad in his wheelchair,
Back into the hospital to his room,
I had a weird feeling the whole time,
Something bad was happening soon.

My memories of this are very faint,
Itís as if they were never really there,
Like that day didnít ever happen,
I never pushed my dad in that wheelchair.

All I can remember is crying for hours,
Crying because I couldnít hold it any longer,
My dad needed me to be there,
And I just couldnít be a little bit stronger.

We go through life ignoring everything,
Every moment not cherished is unknown,
Anything you felt will be gone,
Cherish each moment and make them known.

I remember that day with my dad in the garden,
Sitting on that picnic table by his side,
It was the last time I saw his face,
And my tears I wasnít trying to hide.

I showed him that day how sad I was,
I let him know how much he meant thru-my tears,
Iím glad I let out how I felt,
Because now my father is no longer here.
