I Never Knew

I never knew how true love was
Until after my father was gone
I never knew all the things he did
The care and kindness he hid

I never knew so many things
I drifted through life unaware
I thought I knew where I was going
Until my father was gone

He tested me
He challenged me
He was always there
The rock in a stormy sea

I never knew he was proud of me
Until those last years of Sunday leisure
How can you measure anything
Until it’s over and gone
