John Worsham: Music

When we meet again

(John Worsham)
July 6, 2015

Today I read the letter you sent not long ago

And somehow made it through each painful word

Although you were so young and there was much you didn't know

About all of those fights you overheard


It said you felt that someone else was much more like your Dad

Than I was or could ever hope to be

And though it hurts to hear it, I gave it all I had

And made a few mistakes I must agree



But when we meet again, and you're ready to see

That the Dad I was then was not the Dad I could be

And when years go by and we're both different men

We might even be friends, when we meet again


When you were born, it felt like every wish I had came true

And I cried when I first held your little hand

And I should have held it longer and watched you as you grew

But life doesn't always go the way we've planned



But when we meet again, and you're ready to know

Why it came to an end such a long time ago

And then we’ll talk it through, and let the healing begin

We'll both make amends, when we meet again



I'll be waiting for a call that may never come 

But I'll still keep on waiting

It doesn't matter at all – you’re still my son

There’s no separating



When we meet again, and you're ready to hear

That I have always been hoping you'd reappear

Once we've said our regrets, all our feelings will mend

We won't have to pretend, and we might even be friends,

When we meet again
