Leader of the band

I stumbled upon this song Leader of the band.

And it says:
The leader of the band is tired and his eyes are growing old
But his blood runs through my instrument and his song is in my soul
My life has been a poor attempt to imitate the man
I’m just a living legacy to the leader of the band.

As I heard it, it resonates so much with who I am, what I wish to be, I have always been.... What I have always searched for. An imitation of my father.

I have been a daddy's daughter all my life. I wanted to be an engineer, just like Electrical one, just like him. I agreed to take Computer Sciences as my stream only because he suggested so. Not just my decisions, my moral compass is guided by what he has been. My trust in mankind and men more precisely has been intact only because of him.

I consider I would have lived my life well, if I can pass even half of his values to my offspring and live by his principles. If I can have the same practical approach to life and compassion for all. 

With a son who is growing all too fast, I feel like I am not as much a daughter anymore as a mother. And that's something I never thought was possible.
Thanks to the man who has shaped me more than anyone else... Thanks for giving the faith, the wings and the roots....

I hope the leader of the band never gets tired....
