Just once

Here I am beside you
You’re too close yet so far away.
As if my mind is playing tricks on me
that every time I try to hold you,
you starting to fade.

Just once let me touch you,
Hold you and let my heart feel that you are real.
That you are here with me.
Let me see your eyes, your soul.
Be with me, just once.

Three year ago, he intently gazed at his newly born daughter.
His tears are visible in the corner of his eyes.
He holds the tiny hand of his daughter
while saying how happy he is that they finally have her.

Two years ago, with a heavy heart he left to work overseas.
If he had a choice he won't leave, but he need to sacrifice.
He need to be away so he can provide for his Family.

Then finally, he was able to see again his child.
Hearing her call him Papa is the best thing he ever heard.
It makes him proud and motivate him to work harder.

He knew every hardship he had is all worth it.
And everything he will do for the sake of his Family.
Even if it means is to be away with them.
