Happy Father’s Day | Father and Son

It’s almost Father’s Day. And I want to dedicate this post to all fathers out there! Please know, you God’s gift to all of us. Without you, we won’t be where we are right now.

I remember my Father who passed away 11 years ago. I love him and I think I will always do. How I wish he’s here with me, right now beside me. But no, he’s not here anymore and I need to accept that. I need to believe that God has purposes and that He has plans far greater than what we can see and more than what we can imagine.

Here’s a song that is very good for this season as we remember our Fathers.

Father and Son by Cat Stevens

Father and Son By Cat Stevens (lyrics)
Father
Its not time to make a change,
Just relax, take it easy.
Youre still young, thats your fault,
Theres so much you have to know.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but Im happy.

I was once like you are now, and I know that its not easy,
To be calm when youve found something going on.
But take your time, think a lot,
Why, think of everything youve got.
For you will still be here tomorrow, but your dreams may not.

Son
How can I try to explain, when I do he turns away again.
Its always been the same, same old story.
From the moment I could talk I was ordered to listen.
Now theres a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.

Father
Its not time to make a change,
Just sit down, take it slowly.
Youre still young, thats your fault,
Theres so much you have to go through.
Find a girl, settle down,
If you want you can marry.
Look at me, I am old, but Im happy.
(son– away away away, I know I have to
Make this decision alone – no)
Son
All the times that I cried, keeping all the things I knew inside,
Its hard, but its harder to ignore it.
If they were right, Id agree, but its them you know not me.
Now theres a way and I know that I have to go away.
I know I have to go.
(father– stay stay stay, why must you go and
Make this decision alone? )
