Two weeks since you passed away...
Miss you Daddy
Love you Always

Tưởng Niệm Bố

Con biết có ngày con mất bố
Con đã dặn mình phải vững tâm
Giọt lệ sầu bi, con khóc bố
Bố giờ ở tận mãi nơi đâu?
Âm dương cách biệt con và bố
Chằng thể cùng nhau nói một lời
Thôi thì trong mộng con gặp bố
Con lại đùa vui, chọc bố cười
Đọc lại e-mail con và bố
Nghe hồn ray rứt, nhói tim đau
Bố ơi! xa cách ngàn nhung nhớ
Con mãi tìm đâu bóng dáng Người
Bố về yên nghỉ trong lòng đất
Con thì trôi nổi chốn phong ba
Còn ai nâng đỡ tinh thần nữa
Con phải tự mình thắp đuốc đi
Bố ơi! bố đừng bận tâm nữa
Cực Lạc Phương Tây đón bố về.

Con bố

Việt Nga

English version of Tưởng Niệm Bố

In loving memory of Dad

I know one day I lost you
I told me to be steady
Sorrowful tears, I cry for you
Where are you now?
Yin and yang separated you and me
Can't say a word together
Well, in my dreams, I met you
I'm joking, making you laugh
Re-read the e-mails of you and me
Feel sore soul, throbbing heart pain
Dad! We are apart, I miss you a thousand times
Where can I find you?
You were resting in the ground
I’m in the chaos of life
No-one uplifts me anymore
I have to be my own light
Dad! You can Let go now
Nirvana welcomes you

Your Little girl
