Now that you’ve spent some time out there
seeing futility in vain
now that you’ve learned it’s not all just a game,
as it sets your youthful heart
please lets not drift too far apart…

Now that you’ve had your first heartache
gasping for air as it set upon you
you must remember all I’ve taught you,
be bold and never think you’ve lost
life’s lessons learned, a positive cost

Yes, I accept it, you know it all now
as varied cravings starting to show
all over your tender, adolescent body,
hastily marked by tonic love
be mindful of its perplexities my son.

And as your father drifts away,
as life and death run their trepid course
consider the echo of my distant voice:
never give up your lucid dream
no matter how hard it all may seem…
