I found this
but don't know if it's what you want. Several out there with that title.
How about a lyric snippet if you have it?

A man walks on this earth
For not so very long
And he wonders what
He'll be rememberd by
When he is gone.
So he struggles through the years
Down a road he paves
With hopes and fears
Trying to carve his name
Upon the wall of time.

And so it is, my son
That I stand here now
Looking o'er the years
Of all the sweat and tears
That crossed my brow.
All the battle plans I drew
And all the mountains
That I tried to move
Lay behind me now
Like miles of sifting sand.


But of all the things I've done
I'll never be more proud
Than of you, my son
And of all the dreams I've had
It meant more just to hear
You call me "dad"
More than any wealth or fame
Or any glory I wish I could claim
More than anything I'll ever do
Son, I'll always be most proud
Of you.

Now you stand before me, son
On this golden day
And it's plain that you're a man
No more a child at play
But through a haze of tears I see
That little boy
Who once looked up to me
And realize that I'm the one
Who now looks up to you.

....(repeat chorus)

Sorry that's not it
It begins with " There's another day gone by son, close your eyes"
I closed this thread in an attempt to avoid splitting the discussion.
