"Dreams of my Father"

Back as far as I can remember

Looking up at you

With your shinny gold badge

dressed in navy blue.

Wanting to be like you in everyway

Hoping and dreaming of a distant day.

The day you would pin a badge upon my chest

Hopping one day to be the best.

The days have flown by

This part always makes me cry.

Remembering the day we laid you down to rest

Before you got to pin my badge upon my chest.
