father, dear father

when you touched me for the first time

my eyes were closed, yet i could see your tears of joy

father, dear father

when you held me against your chest

i knew i belonged to you

father, dear father

when you held my fingers in your hand

i knew i was going to follow your footsteps

father, dear father

when you came running to pick me as i fell

i knew i would be safe in your arms

father, dear father

when you taught me to be kind and humble

i knew you were a gentle soul

father, dear father

when you showed me the way to life

i knew it was the best path for me

father, dear father

could i ever thank you enough

for being the way to were to me

guess, i shall pass on the legacy

to your grandson

raise him like you raised me

father, dear father

with all my love

a tribute to your tender soul
