If I Could Only

Dad if I could only tell you just how much you mean to me, I would tell you that I love you no matter how confused you seem to be.
If I could only tell you just how much it would mean to me, To hear your soothing voice just to comfort me.
If I could tell you what it would mean to me, to wrap my arms around you and kiss you on the cheek, and just to hear you say kid your unique.
If I could only tell you, I would say thank you for sharing my grief and would tell you Dad that I miss you and please don't leave.
This Alzheimer's that you have has stolen you away from me but dad I would tell you that I love you and it's okay to go and be free.
