He Died Alone

My old man died last winter just before the thaw.
He’d called us home to say goodbye, though we didn’t know it then.
So proud he was to see us, then he sent us on our way,
Saying "Where would I be without you?"

My old man, he died alone.
Just the way he’d lived the last couple of years.
You never knew his name, but the world is not the same
Since my old man died alone.

I never knew how much I’d miss him, so it catches me off guard.
We weren’t the kind to talk too much,
But we’d thought we’d said it all.
They say hindsight’s twenty-twenty,
Now I know there’s one more thing to say.
Dad, where would I be without you?
