By the time you get this letter, I might be doing better
Its kinda hard trying to survive, in all this crazy weather
 Everybody wants my number 
Everybody's calling my name
But in the mist of all of this I can still hear you say
"Son walk up right and straighten your tie
You don't want one of them good jobs to pass you by
Don't act no fool, I'm watching you"
And now that you're gone, it still feels like you do, I wish

I wish you were here
To see the things I've done
I wish you were here
You'd be so proud of your son
I wish you were here
To celebrate with me
I wish you were here

Now all of these people ask me, is it lonely at the top
Or do I find comfort in all the things I got
Well these cars keep me moving  These planes keep me high
A million dollar home, but I'm barely getting by cuz
I miss our talks, One thing you used to say
When things got hard, get down on your knees and pray
And then those walks, its just the simple things
We still do all of this, But only in my dreams, I wish


But sometimes I wonder why
Why can't you still be here with me
Wish God would've waited, a couple more years for you to see
I'm trying to stay strong, barely holding on
I know I'll see you again 
But for right now rest in peace 
And when I get to heaven, first thing they'll say to me
Tell me have you seen Estelle Marie Tallie 
Find out where you are
Run into your arms
Wrap your wings around me, and whisper in my ear," Well done"
Well, well done my son, well done
