Pa, my beloved
How I wish I could hold your lil finger
To walk through my life, carefree
Now that it sounds like a fairy tale
For you’ve grown old, frail
However, it doesn’t matter
I can still feel you close to me
As I walk into the unknown
An unknown horror eats me now
For, I see demons around
Pa, be my guardian angel tonight.
