Lyrics

Good morning son
Or should I say goodbye
I know you’ll be leaving for a little while

I know we don’t usually
Have these kinds of talks
But I think we should before you go

Do you remember all the times
That we spent laughing
Through the sun, the snow, and all the rainy nights

But as time went on
The laughter turned to crying
I can’t remember who started all the fights

And now we’re here
In this room
And all I can see is the face of a little child

How’d we get here
Why all this gloom
I swear that if I knew

Good morning little girl
I know mommy’s been away for quite some time

I know I’ve missed out
On some important things
But please know mommy has been trying

If I only knew then
What I know now
Perhaps I would have weighed the options a little more

But that can’t change reality
Or the tears when
I found your letter on the floor

I’m sorry
That I didn’t see the signs
Or the cries for help that you made
how was I to see you needed me)
And I’m sorry
That you felt the only option was this
Know you will be missed

You can’t imagine
What they said when you were gone
It’s said love isn’t met till you’ve left
But now I know that’s wrong  

The lives you changed
And what you did
For those in need

I guess you were
The only one
Who couldn’t see

And I wonder how this happened
I guess it was fault of my own
You gave so much we didn’t give you attention
If only I saw then, if only I had known

I’m sorry
That I didn’t see the signs
Or the cries for help that you made
(how was I to see you needed me)
And I’m sorry
That you felt the only option was this
Know you will be missed
