An Elegy for my Father


Oh my father
Why you left us
When you left us I felt
the pain in our hearts.

Oh my father
Until now I'm still waiting
I hope that you will come back
But you can't because you're already dead.

Oh my father
I study hard for you
I stand to be strong
The reason why I'm strong, is you.

Oh my father
Saying goodbye to you is not easy
And letting go is so hard
But I pretend to be strong.

Oh my father
I hope that you are happy
And I hope that you're happy for me
Because you are my inspiration.

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
