Been damn near 20 but I still feel your ghost,
Must've followed me out here when I ran from the coast,
While you've got my attention, lemme raise a toast,
Tell you what I wonder the most;

What would you be thinking if you saw me today,
If I could hear your voice, tell me what would it say?
Probably insulting, but in anger or play?
Never could tell back in the day;

When my confidence is shaken,
It's followed soon by your advice,
Whether or not your words are taken,
I have to stop and think twice;

Been damn near 20 but I still feel the burn,
Of all those lessons I failed to learn,
Made me feel so small, but somehow I yearn,
For your misspoken concern;

Wonder what you'd say if I could pick up the phone,
Would you give me trouble, for being alone,
Ask me why I have no family of my own,
And how you'd feel if I made it known;

I fear I'd treat my family coldly,
Make them bitter and distressed,
Tell them the same cruel things you told me,
And make them feel second best;

Been damn near 20 but I still hear your voice,
Trying to tell me, that I have the choice,
To let the past go, regain my poise,
Enjoy what I have now and rejoice;

Easy said than done...
