You should honour your father,
for he gave you the necessary strength,
to fight all battle's in your life
and to always be on your guard.
He taught you to carefully weigh and cherish
a great many things in this world,
whether right or wrong,
never judge others, if they're a coward or a hero.
In fun and in earnest times,
he put his arms around you, with emotion
and grieved over you many
although you never knew it.
So show him your utmost respect
And reach out your hand to him.
Bring love and lot's of honour
to your Father, as well as your country.
