For Just One Moment

For just that one Moment
I was what I used to be
Playfully perched on my father's knee

I was there, way back when
With my dad who, for me
Dwarfed all other men

I wasn't all grown
All alone
Facing the world on my own

For just that one moment, I yearn
Just that one moment
Will it never return?
