Dad I know I've never told you
Three little words that I knew
Ever since you brought me here
You've taught me not to fear

That life is only what you make of it
That if you fall, you never quit
That those who quit do not have no purpose in life
And they might just take the knife

So once and for all I must say
Something I would shy away
Dad, I love you

Love, Ayub
