“My Father’s Eyes” Aaron Taos Lyrics

Looking in my father’s eyes
Pale blue as autumn skies
He whispers as he starts to cry
“I’m sorry I’ll miss half your life

No helping hand through highs and lows
No wedding day, kids of your own
The journey by the milestones
The valleys peaks and winding roads”

I hold his hand and cheek to cheek
I tell him “You’ve done more for me
Than any man I’ll ever meet
So while this may be bittersweet

Leave knowing you’ve done your best”
And so I lay my head on his chest
As I’ve done since the day we met
Once final time, now get some rest

I love you
