The Man You Raised ( Lyrics)

father and son 002   The Man * You Raised
From the moment I arrived
Filled my lungs and cried
As held me in your hands
I felt your love and pride

I am the man you raised
Because loved me unrestrained
You  scoured  the streets
Sacrificed for my well being

Always provided a home fit for a king yet not a palace
Held my hand as learned to  walk providing steady balance
Pushed me on tricycles, bikes with training wheels to swings
Got me to soar as if an eagle with stretched-out wings
Taught me to drive avoid the crash
Encouraged my out of line crayon colored drawings

I am the man you raised
Because loved me unrestrained
You scoured the streets
Sacrificed for my well being

No matter the hour you’d answer when I call
You picked me up when I did fall
My dad my world you are  it all
Now and when just four feet tall

I am the man you raised
Because loved me unrestrained
You scoured the streets
Sacrificed for my well being

Dad as I bring up my child today
I see you in myself in so many ways
My heart is full and rich
As I am the man you raised

You scoured the streets
Because loved me unrestrained
Sacrificed for my well being
You are a man to praise
Happy Father’s Day
I am the man you raised

* woman can be substitute for man
