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.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
