He sat shivering on a park bench
coldest day since I don't know when
Clothes didn't suit the bitter wind
tired and old, whiskers on his chin
Sat down next to him offered him a Winston
quit years ago, don't touch them!
Like a coffee, maybe a hot soup?
I'm ok son, really just need to talk to you

pre c
Something to say, to lighten my load
before it's too late, truth should be told
You're a piece of my life, you don't know it
taken from me a long time ago.
Another piece of my life,
but this time the pieces fit. 
Piece of my life, you never knew it 
Once loved your mom,he described her well
he spoke the truth,that I could tell
Set to wed,she found someone new
they got married,but she was carrying you
Proud of you son the man I wanted to be
I said, but how did you know it was me?
How did you know I'd stop to talk to you?
He said, all because you did, what I would do
Times were very different then,
unmarried with a child was a sin
so I guess in a way she did the right thing
You're a piece of my life, you don't know it
taken from me a long time ago.
Another piece of my life,
but this time the pieces fit. 
Piece of my life, now you know it 
Invited him to meet my family
declined,said he knew all about me
Knew mom had long passed away
he said,that cut me to pieces every day
Hated leaving the old guy so all alone
picked up the paper on returning home
Inquest report of on an old man found dead
that was two weeks ago. On a park bench

You're a piece of my life, you don't know it
taken from me a long time ago.
Another piece of my life,
but this time the pieces fit. 
Piece of my life, never knew it

But the ending is what really happens in these situations a great deal of the time. Never heard the whole story but when I was about eight years old my parents told me that I was adopted as my mom couldn't have any kids. Tried before but I believe stillborn. Since I was born during WWII I was probably one of these war babies and my birth mother probably had me when her husband was fighting the war and couldn't afford to raise a child alone. Single parenting was much less common and nearly taboo in those days. This is just a guess, maybe fodder for a future song.
