    Where Your Father Went
    Copyright ©2007 Jerry Lee Joyner

    Wish I’d seen you then, like I see you now,
    Oh you don’t know how, much you make me proud
    When I was not there, and when I was,
    I was so unaware, of the way you cared
    You could see right through me,
    When I would not see anything at all,
    Tried to get through to me,
    When I could not do anything but fall,
    Oh, but you always held my hand
    Oh, even when you could not understand,
    Where your father went

    All your tears that fell, all your fears that swelled,
    From my self-made hell, that you could not help
    Lying wake in bed, all those thoughts in head,
    What you might have said, if I might be dead
    How could I be so jaded,
    To three lives that God created for,
    Me to be pervaded, in everything,
    That you have waited for
    Oh, but you always held my hand,
    Oh, even when you could not understand,
    Where your father went

    Yet you comprehend the change in me,
    Believe it’s not pretend this time
    After all the things your eyes have seen
    Your eyes can see the truth in mine
    And it’s so divine

    So we sail through life, hoping we’ll forget,
    All the things of past, till they’re gone at last
    Floating on our faith, through the sea of fate,
    Savoring each crest, of the waves we’ve left
    And I hope that when my ride ends,
    Yours will continue on
    And that you’ll rest assured, our savior,
    Has come to take me home
    Oh, and I know you’ll hold my hand,
    Oh, and I know you’ll understand,
    Where your father went
