Fathers day and your birthday all rolled up into one.

This year we celebrate Father's day and your birthday, all in the same day.
This is going to be a very hard day for us, that's all that I can say.
For we miss you both so much, that bits of our hearts, keep breaking away.
Tim, I still remember the year you were born and your hospital stay.
For you got to come home on a special day, it was Father's day,
Dads smile was so big, his pride beaming, that it did not sway.
But now you're both gone, we're having trouble keeping our demons at bay.
So as you're in heaven looking down on us all, please take a minute to pray.
The burden too great, from the loss of you two, our tears, the price we pay.
One day, we will see each other again, and then everything, will be okay.
