As I sit here tonight and regress in time
A thousand memories of you come to my mind
The first time I held you, so tiny and small
I knew God had given me the best son of all...
You came to me just weeks before my dad went away
God took him, but left you to stay
I watched this boy child learn how to crawl
When learning to walk I'd pick you up after a fall...
You were soon going to school and playing little league
Every so often a hug from me you would still need
Each day with you brought me such joy and pleasure
Those were golden years that I'll always treasure...
Before I was ready you had graduated from high school
And started your life, playing by your own rules
The times you would hug me as you walked out the door
You never saw my silent tears, begging for one more
The times we would sit and talk of your lifes plans
Made my heart sing to know of your good moral stand
You have your own life now and friends to call your own
I have to remember that you were given to me on loan
Sometimes I go to your room, and stare into the past
I relive memories and wonder why they passed so fast
I just want you to know I thank God for you each day
I know Daddy smiles as he looks down on you Cameron Ray
