Ballad of a Dead Hero


Lord, after so many years I shed so many tears

Somebody please wake me from this dream

I still can't believe you're gone

You lived a selfless life

You accepted all who came to you

Regardless of their fate,belief,race or tribe

You taught me Light, Life and Love and lived by them daily

You lived a life free from regrets

You taught me that everything happens for a reason

Now I am forced to accept that

You believed so much in "Ehi" and He never failed you.

Words can't ever express how I feel

I appreciate how you raised me

And all the extra love that you gave me

If I had one wish,

I would wish you back

If there's a reincarnation,

I would want you back as my father

Tears still rolling down my cheeks.

I wonder what life would be without you,

How do I live without you?

How do I carry on?

I shed tattoo tears

So much pain in my heart as I write

Memories of you are all I got now

Though you are gone,

You will always live in my heart with unconditional love

I love you daddy and will miss you everyday

Sleep on MY HERO in the bosom of the Lord

Till we meet to part no more


My Hero

MY HERO

MY HERO
