Upon my father's anniversay

Father, remember

What common ground we had

We had love, land, time, air

Somehow I remember

That’s all we shared


I made it my business

To leave you

Even though part of me

Believed you


You had a look

That told me of an idea you had

You held for me a book

And told me “take it from here and be glad”


Somehow I was young

And old and proud

Somehow I clung

To that which would make me loud


Do you remember how we left each other?

Do you remember we left in a hurry?

Do you remember me and my mother?

Do you remember anything about worry?


Well, I worry because I remember you

And I promise I won’t forget

This year’s last December, you

Let me go, you did let


When I wake these days I see your face

It feels that you are with me

In a common ground stronger than place

From now on, that’s way it’ll be.
