A Song for Dad, "Here in Late November"

The dark days gather early now There's rain upon my window The winter mists come stealing round As daylight greets my pillow These days are a time for mourning While all the world remembers I remember seeing you Here in late November Your photograph is on the wall With your little family A hundred years and more have passed Since it was taken For half those years I've seen your face Glowing as an ember I remember knowing you Here in late November Thank you for the music Thank you for the song Thank you for the laughter Though it didn't last for long Thank you for your caring, The best that you could render I remember loving you Here in late November My girls are grown and married now I have a grandchild too As the years come circling round My thoughts come back to you I tell them all the stories All the stories I remember I remember life with you Here in late November Thank you for the music, Thank you for the song, Thank you for the laughter, Though it didn't last for long, Thank you for the caring, The best that you could render I remember loving you Here in late November, I remember loving you Here in late November.
