I remember last summer,
and you’d play in water and smile
so big and so innocent
and I proudly called you my child
Today I don’t call myself a cripple
but is so difficult to stand up tall
I try to keep a strong image
for I can’t stand the thought of you suffering seeing my tears fall
So many people would dare smile with us
many of them I held so dear
many of them who I wish were here
to help me deal better with this uncertainty and fear.
You have me, and I you,
to keep each other strong
on these moments where things have gone so wrong,
Where no one can assure me,
with me for many years to come you belong.
Today I still have you with me
your endless love, and the love from your dad.
that reminds me giving up is not an option
and if things are not good, they won’t go bad,
and if life today is an option,
today is the option that we’ll grab.
and together, till the end of time we have
we’ll be a strong loving family
and our future with no moments where we’re sad.
For we are together,
and in the end, that’s all that matters.
