Five long years have gone by
Five years so soon
We’re still hoping you’ll be back
Tomorrow or yesterday afternoon

Every car, every jeep
Every doorbell that rings
Late at night or early morn
Makes us sit up and think

Maybe it’s you coming home
Maybe the day’s finally done
Now we can spend some time together
Now perhaps we can have some fun

But no doorbell rings late at night
No sound from you we hear
Days pass by, just like that
Another week, a year

Soon it’ll be another year
Another eleventh of Feb.
To remember those days , those years ago
When we didn’t think you would be dead

written in 1997 for my dad for his 5th anniversary.Today, 10 years later, marks the 15th anniversary of his passing.
