To My Father
Your torch you have dropped has not gone out
for we will carry it for you.
Your love has left our presence
but we will always feel you.
Your face has left our sight
but we will always see you.
Your respect and strength have yielded
but they will always be in us.
Your voice may have faded
but we will always hear you.
Your blood may have stopped
but your heart still beats in us.
Dad, you have given us your torch
and we will carry it high.
We love you, Dad.
We will always have you deep inside.
