When I Have A Father Like You

When I was born, you put your future on a little daughter
When I smiled, you said that "how wonderful life was"
When I called "Daddy", sparking stars appeared in your eyes

When I knew how to run then fall down on the hard road, how strong you felt just to protect me…
When I did bad things, you taught me right from wrong
When I spoke bad words then they hurt you and mum, you said that one day I should learn how to bring smile to others instead of hurting them

When I got awards, you didn't say anything…but I could see happiness in your eyes
When I was disappointed with my university entrance exam, you said sometimes it is fate
When I was in bad mood, you taught me how to become a humorous girl
When I started to cry, you let me cry on your shoulder until I felt my pain was away
When I smiled, you said that life will be sad when there is a lack of laughter

Finally, I had to go away…
At that crossroad…in the twilight
When we said goodbye…
I watched you walking alone to the bus station
We were both crying while people were passing and laughing
I stood here and felt too lonely … too sad
But I knew your heart felt more sorrow than mine

I followed my dreams and chased my aspiration
I forgot to make a call to know how you were
I forgot you had some white hairs
I forgot you also have your dreams

Then one day, I went back to see you
My childhood came to me like a short film
A young man was walking with me on the fresh grass…

And now…
You got many wrinkles around your eyes
I burst into tears…
When I touched your lumpy hands
They raised me up…
They taught me…
They brought a bright future to me….

Daddy, I can only cry…
I can only smile…
In happiness….
When I have a father like you…
