Brandon Wade Winthrope
Proud Father to Jamie, Marika and stepfather to Roberta.

When I come to the end of the road
And the sun has set for me
I want no rites in a gloom filled room
Why cry for a soul set free?
Miss me a little, but not too long
And not with your head bowed low
Remember the love that we once shared
Miss me - but let me go
For this is a journey that we all must take
And each must go alone
It's all part of the master's plan
A step on the road to home
When you are lonely and sick of heart
Go to the friends we know
And bury your sorrows in doing good deeds
Miss me - but let me go

Daddy, did you see me?
I was standing at the door
Waiting for you to come home
Just like I did before
sssh, Daddy's sleeping
I told everyone today
They say you're with the angels
But when do we get to play?
I really just don't get it
I really just don't know
Why you had to leave me
Why my best friend had to go
People say that I am special
But my needs are truly few
I really just need my Dad
To show me what to do
How am I supposed to learn
How to be a man?
That was supposed to be your job
Mom tries the best she can
Your pictures are pasted on a board
I looked at them today
I remember all the things we did
And what you used to say
You said that I was your Best Bud
Your son, you said with pride
There's a picture of you smiling
With me right by your side
You taught me how to deal with life
To walk, to talk, to run
But without you Dad, I have to say
It really just isn't fun
I go to school, I laugh and play
I'm carrying on you know
But I really still don't get it
Why did you have to go?
Daddy, do you see me?
I'm still standing by the door
Waiting for the day to come
When we're together forever more
Love Jamie
