Only For Daddy

July 23, 2008

Only For Daddy

Like the sunrise in the morning

To see you, I am yearning

Without you, it is so sad

Come back and I’ll be glad

The house seems so empty

Thoughts of you, so plenty

Looking for your warm smile

Is simply missing for awhile

Today, my life comes to a halt

Full of darkness, nowhere to start

My plans, nothing seem to matter

I feel totally in a shatter

Feeling like this, so abound

Turns me completely all around

Pouring all out , it brings

Forever, it’s love that clings

Nothing could be the same

Can my loneliness be tamed

Nobody can take your place

Only in you, I find solace.

–poem for my dad, April 18, 1992
