Now you're shining like, shining like
A sunflower up in the sky
Shining like
A sunflower up in the sky

Thank you for forgiving
Hurtful things I've done as a child, adolescent or woman
Thank you for embracing a flaxen-haired baby
Although I'm aware you had your doubts
I guess anybody'd have had doubts

Please be at peace father
I'm at peace with you
Bitterness isn't worth cling to
After all the anguish we've all been through

Thank you for the mountains
The lake of the clouds
I'm picturing you and me there right now
As the crystal cascades showered down

Strange to feel that proud, strong man
Grip tightly to my hand
Hard to see the life inside
Wane as the days went by

Trying to preserve each word
He murmured in my ear
Watch part of my life disappear

Father, thanks for reaching out and lovingly
Saying that you've always been proud of me
I needed to feel that so desperately
You're always alive inside of me

Now you're shining like
A sunflower up in the sky way up high
