I always like the song " Cats in the Cradle " by Harry Chapin. It tells a story of being a parent of a child and growing old as the child grows up and has his own family.

"IN THIS LIFE"  by Collin Raye

 

For all I've been blessed in this life
There was an emptiness in me
I was imprisoned by the power of gold
With one honest touch you set me free
Let the world stop turning
Let the sun stop burning
Let them tell me love's not worth going through
If it all falls apart
I will know deep in my heart
The only dream that mattered had come true
In this life, I was loved by you
For every mountain I have climbed
Every Raging river crossed
You were the treasure I longed to find
Without your love I would be lost
Let the world stop turning
Let the sun stop burning
Let them tell me love's not worth going through
If it all falls apart
I will know deep in my heart
The only dream that mattered had come true
In this life, I was loved by you
In this life, I was loved by you

Cat’s in the Cradle by Harry Chapin. One of Harry’s stories about being too busy with daily life and missing what’s important. Classic.
