By Charles Robert Lindholm 

wealth and fame
are won and lost
come and go
joy and sorrow
and at last
I’ve come to know 

of  all the things
I’ve said or done
I’ll be truly glad
if I am just remembered
as my daughter’s Dad

Inspired by an interview with Billy Joel.

The interviewer asked Billy Joel, “Of all your accomplishments as a rock musician, a singer and a songwriter, what would you most like to be remembered as?”  Billy Joel’s response was, “I would most like to be remembered as my daughter’s Dad.”
