For the one that holds me in place and motivates my thirst for life, my only true love, my daughter.
When autumn comes and life goes on
my daughter dear, another year
time gives to you and takes from me,
another candle is there now blown
with wishes still not fully clear
and love not found to be so free,
but you keep smiling as life goes on.
And what I want on father’s day
for you my dear so close to stay,
to hold you tight and not let go
protecting you from all the harm,
from all the tears and all the pain-
But what I wish I wish in vain
as you my love adventures want
and just this life you now outgrow
so holding tight, I’ll let you go.
