I have been so far away
Counting the time until today
So long I've waited for a chance
When I could spend some time with you
Just with you

You are growing so very fast
And I know I'm always the very last, oh
To help you with a problem
To kiss your hurt if you should happen to fall down
Fall down

But when I'm gone
I need you here to carry on
My son I know you will be strong
Like a burning flame
You're my claim
That's why you've got my name
And just to show
Come what may I love you so
And there will come a day
When all that's mine is yours
To take good care of you and yours I swear
I swear
And this is my prayer

Oh, yes
When I look at you, so hard to believe
You're the younger version of older me
I swear
I swear
And this is my prayer
Oh lord, this is my prayer
