Goodbye, the word I never got to say. I miss u, instead of talk, I'll have to pray. Your words of wisdom, the kind that would make my day, but I wish you wouldn't have gone this way. You fixed trucks and u fixed cars, ya fixed everything but now I'm fallin apart-goodbye would put me back together, the one word that could hold me forever, I won't give up because u never did. That's what ud want beca...use I'm your kid....Goodbye~ I love you and that won't change, goodbye, goodbye it won't be the same. I'll miss u here callin my name, tellin me about the chores I never did. You fixed trucks and u fixed cars, ya fixed everything but I fell apart... The words you and i never got to exchange-I wish.... You never realize how painful the little things can be. I'm telling all of you, love all of your parents for as long and as much as you can, you can't take back any mistakes or regrets. R.I.P Dad.
God took one Wallace he's gonna need two hands for.
