    when this world comes to an end
    and i'm approaching the pearly gates
    rest assured that my last prayer
    will be that God will keep you safe

    i'll take a glimpse over my shoulder
    and ***** the road i've paved
    i will finally overstand why i have nothing
    because my all i gave

    when my final teardrop falls
    and tumbles through the clouds
    separating a path through the heavy air
    only to crumble on your brow

    sooner or later it will lose its way
    as it slithers across your skin
    and eventually it will evaporate
    from the fire that burns within

    when my clock approaches tick
    but never reaches tock
    when my soul grows tired
    when my life has expired
    and my breathing finally stops

    my eyes will close slowly
    never again to behold
    the beauty of my daughter
    a living piece of my soul

    the sustenance for my spirit
    the fuel for my life
    the reprimand when i'm wrong
    the reward when i'm right

    as my spirit leaves my body
    and ascends towards the sky
    think of that breeze as my hand
    wiping the tears from your eye

    the roaring clouds will come
    and the drenching rains will fall
    whether in spirit or in person
    i'm with you through it all

    the thunder may roll
    and the lightening may flash
    but there aint a storm in heaven
    that could drown the love of your dad

    when the earth swallows my casket
    and the final rose is thrown
    when your spirit is broken
    and you don't feel like hoping
    'cause you're feeling all alone

    remember that you are a piece of me
    and i am the essence of you
    a vestige of eternity
    that lives tried and true

    you and i are bound together
    by a love that never ends
    daughter and father
    two of a kind
    confidants and friends
