At That Time
At that time, she calm down, stop crying after heard my voice tone far away from home, across the ocean.
Our heart beating hard connected, link through the air, even we never see face to face.
At that time, she calm down, lips curve when her plane touch down my town, came far away across the ocean.
If she is crying, I embraced her tightly in my arm and chest, heard my heart beating slowly, she calm down instantly.
At that time, she got driver license, we laugh together in 17th birthday celebration with the love ones. We knew then she would drive us safe enjoy the family weekend.
At that time, she graduated and entered University far away out of town, she knew that we love and pray for her future to come.
