My heart swells with grief
When I think of you,
How you have been before
And now, alas! how are you...
Ever since I remember
Your strong hands cuddling me
My hero, the first man in my life -
That’s how I have always adored you
You don’t remember
My first love letter that you read
We laughed to our heart’s content
While Ma glared at us with rage.
To do or not to do -
The dilemma you were part of
Together we had resolved
You don’t remember how sad you were
The following day of my wedding.
I still recall ...
