September 17, 2002
I was here at home, where were you?
I crawled into a ball, knees pressed to my chest
I laid my head on the chair and tried to rest

September 17, 2002
My soul died, and I became a new
I cried and tears fell down my cheeks
I cried and cried and cried for weeks

September 17, 2002
Was probably any other day to you
Not for me! That was the day I cried
That was the day my only father died

So September 17, 2002
Will be etched in my brain until my life is through
Until I'm in heaven with him again
I'll have to pretend to smile and hold up my chin

Timothy Dale Parris
I will always love you!
