Tears for my hero

I'm standing here
With tears falling
Like rain on a sidewalk
Pounding away
My hero is gone
And I want him back
I want his strength
I want his wisdom
I want his presence
The way he was
The way he saw the world
Was of another time
Forgotten now
He was less than perfect
But so am I
And I want him back
So I can sit with him
Without speaking a word
Like I once did
Because being in his
Profound presence
Was all I ever needed
