"You made the most of every day"

by Robert Bennett Jr. (Robbie)

If I could just go back in time

To help you hunt for one more dime

We'd find the treasure near the spot

Where we used to go a lot.

The little things you used to say

The photos of your wedding day

You always took the time to pray

You made the most of every day.

You were there when I was sad

You were there when I was glad

You were there when I was mad

I wish you were still here Dad.

We are sad that you are gone

Jesus Christ will lead you on

He will take you by the hand

And show you where the treasure's grand.

You took your lunch box to work each day

Now I have it tucked away

Life goes on so they say

I miss you more each passing day.

Our old movies sure were great

I watch them still but not too late

For a tear comes to my eye

I didn't get to say goodbye!
