Son of Mine

Son of mine please be kind in your memories of me
For my time in this world was rich as any’s could be
Every breath that I ‘ve tasted I’ve choked on a blessing
To say anything less is just my dark side confessing
Son of mine please be kind in your memories of me

Son of mine let the hard times let a soft answer speak
For the strongest of men is the one who can be seen as weak
As the halogen moon kissed your crib with you sleeping
There was no sense of shame in my uncontrolled weeping
Son of mine please be kind in your memories of me

Time will pass you by and things won’t work the way you planned
You go right ahead cry it won’t make you less a man

Son of mine remember all the good times we have known
As that fruit and the vine intertwine you know you’re never alone
As my father before me so I’m always with you
You continue this story in everything that you do
Son of mine please be kind in your memories of me
Son of mine please be kind in your memories of me
