Our Papa

He’s been here every day I remember of my life
I was just a baby, when he took my sister as his wife
He worked nonstop, took care of her, me and momma too
He became a dad to me, doing everything he didn’t have to do
He’s a good man, with a good heart, the kindest soul you’ll see
He’s the kind of man I’m trying to teach my son how to be
We never thought in a million years it would come to this
Now we’re counting every day he’s here as blessing and a gift
I watched him stand so strong, with every test they put him through
He swears he’s gonna beat this and he always tells the truth
I’ve watched my sister cry, right there with her three kids
I’ve watched his grandkids love him, through every bit of this
I’ve watched his sisters taking time, just to come make memories
I’ve watched them hide their tears, every time they have leave
Please Lord don’t take him, that’s our prayer every night
Please help mend his body, please make everything alright
Please Lord give him strength, help him to fight this every day
Help him to be strong, please stay beside him along the way
Help us to be patient, please help us do everything we can
Please Lord fix our Papa, this family’s heart is in your hands
