with a loving little kiss;
one day this strong wind came
all my sweet dreams away
at the age of what`s forgotten
it was dire what I had to say.
weight of the world on my shoulders
knew what pain I was going through,
I tried and strived to please you
duty you command I should do.
can see, I was the head of our family
everyone else depended on `its ok`
night I heard our butterfly was crying
the strength to face another day.
have passed with the kids now grown
took our signet to a brand new home,
knows why that I shed these silent tears
Easter somewhere another will be born.
those tears, I'm depending on you Daddy
real strength and pull this family through.
Boy`s, all that fighting is over
now it's all left
up to your Mum.
I will carry on aimlessly searching,
but up in heaven, I
will find our Son.
