~Meaningful Memories~

Dad would've been 100 today, if he was on this side of eternity
I would have liked to take him to his favorite place of all places
He loved to golf mostly and once ... he even got a hole in one!
He could be quiet there and get his thinking done, I suppose.

I would have liked to take him to his favorite place of all places
When I was little, he'd take me swimming and sit and watch me
He could be quiet there and get his thinking done, I suppose,
He had meanigful sayings for living well that I never did forget

When I was little, he'd take me swimming and sit and watch me
He taught me what really matters most, like doing my very best
He had meaningful sayings for living well that I never did forget
When I was sad, he would remind me to hold a good thought

He taught me what really matters most, like doing my very best
When I was sad he would remind me to hold a good thought,
He loved to golf mostly and once ... he even got a hole in one!
Dad would've been 100 today, if he was on this side of eternity
