O Commander-in-chief!
Thy fortitude and forbearance will ring into our hearts,
All thy words and deeds unto us never forgotten,
Thy long-time silence had countless meanings,
And we failed to keep it in our hearts.

Thou mayst think we forgot thee,
Never had we forgotten thee in our life,
Thy love, thy kisses, and thy care for us.
Thy present state may be inevitable
That our presence with thee impossible.

We send thee our love through words,
Accept them now in this state,
Think we with thee and we are with thee.
We salute unto thy fortitude and forbearance.
Thou art our Commander-in-chief!
(Dedicated to my Dad, who is in his last days on Father’s Day)
