Hold Back The River

Behind those bars for eight years

I wonder how you get through ..

I've stopped crying those sad tears 

I'll love and hate the day I see you ..

You've turned your life around, You're better 

You've inspired me so much .. 

But still I miss my father 

That smile and warm touch ..

A heart so big 

A soul so pure ..

We all make mistakes 

I forgive you, I just wish you were here .. 

Because of you i'm a better me

You'll never understand 

Hopefully you'll read this one day ..

But please, hold back the river if you can
