no time for bullshit

 
the day died and no one saw it leave  
except the moon and me  
we burned its ashes  
saying only a few words  
about the kind of man he was  
   
it was a rough thing to manage  
any kindness towards him  
he was a hard man  
always riding people  
   
no nonsense was his view on all things  
didn't take crap  
and if you offered up an excuse  
he'd let loose on you  
excuses are for losers and cowards  
he'd always say  
so own up to your failures  
and change them  
   
I guess he had a point  
so with that I cleared my throat  
and began his eulogy    
about how much the day    
reminded me of my dad  
   
thank you dad for visiting with me    
as the day dies  
and you stay gone  
in the place people go when they're done  
   
it was good to hear your voice  
as you know I took the coward's way out today  
I didn't know you were watching  
or just didn't want to  
and no, I don't have any excuses  
 
I love you
