Larger than life!!!

At eight, I met you,
You were larger than life,
And I knew I had to live up to your presence,
Tough, Impressionable,
And both a lover and a fighter,

In two separate worlds we went,
But you were still my father,
And I was still your son,
Looking up to you,
Even though we were far away,
In distance and life,

I see you now,
And you still are,
What you were where we left off,
Larger than life,
I still trying to keep up with you,
I just hope I'm good enough,
To fill the shoes you wear,

I worry about you now,
But you won't let me,
I learn about me through you,
You don't share fear or pain,
In fear of giving worry,
But I'm strong enough now,

But I know, like my mom,
You still see the boy holding your hand,
And looking up,
A wonderful place to remember,
And where I might happily always stay,
Looking up to someone who will always be to me,
Larger than life,

the dancer moves without a trace,
