Regained - "From the other side" son to his grown father, about their distant relationship

Not so long ago, before I left this earth
You walked with me out in the dirt
Wasn’t always easy
I wasn’t always who you wanted me to be
Wasn’t always easy
Loving me

But now I’m gone from the places that we shared
The beauty of the farm, sitting on the shed bench watching you there
Wasn’t always easy
To be so near you and not know what to say
Wasn’t always easy
For me

But if you could see me now
No longer fighting against the strain,
If you could see me now
No more hiding inside my pain,
If you could see me now
All of life’s mysteries laid out plain
If you could see me now, Dad
Everything lost to me, regained

You patched up my cars, all those broken parts
And now you’ve given me my dream, you’ve patched all my walls
You’ve spoken to my heart

And if you could see me now
No longer fighting against the strain,
If you could see me now
No more hiding inside my pain,
If you could see me now, the way I see
All of your love for me laid out plain
If you could see me now, Dad
Nothing is lost to me, all your love for me,
Regained
