I'm always afraid of death,
That one day it would come for me,
Maybe now or later,
Afraid that everyone would just leave.
That I would have nobody,
Nobody to care,
Nobody to tell me I'm okay,
It took my gran.
I was so afraid,
I kept saying wake up gran,
Don't leave I'm not ready yet I need you still,
My mum told me to wait outside.
I didn't know what to do,
I cried on the hall,
I walked out there with sadness,
And fear that it would take everyone away,
I'm afraid of being alone,
With no one to help me.
It is my fear that hold me back,
But without it I would cry,
I have to be strong for my mum,
After school I would go to my room,
Lock the door behind me,
I would cry till I had no tears left,
But I had no one to comfort me.
Thank You, I Love You!
The night is made for us to rest,
to forget all our problems and stress
but every night for me still is restless
I just can't forget you love and caress
As the wind blows over my body
tears run down my face felling sorry
i feel sorry for the things I did wrong
all these time I thought I was strong
to face the future without your presence
for me to be happy but it was non-sense
you were much more than a father
you are such a good person, life could ever offer
yes it's hard to be without you
but I need to be strong and be new
thank you for the life and the lessons you gave
I love you my father and I' ll say I love you as long as I live
there is one promise I' ll give to you
in my heart my dear father you'll always live, I love you.
