I Do Not See You Often

Music: Lord Franklin.
Sequenced by Barry Taylor.

I do not see you often, but
I see you every day.
I've taken you along with me
As I have grown away.

We talk about the things that fill
A life with love and pain,
But our timeless golden time,
Unspoken, still remains.

You will always be my dad,
And I, your darling daughter.
The days may turn like waterwheels,
But that will never change.

The thought of you will make me glad
No matter where I wander.
You are the place that cannot feel
Uncanny, dark, or strange.
