Daddy's Hands

 

by Holly Dunn

 

 



I remember Daddys hands, folded silently in prayer.
And reaching out to hold me, when I had a nightmare.
You could read quite a story, in the callouses and lines.
Years of work and worry had left their mark behind.

I remember Daddys hands, how they held my Mama tight,
And patted my back, for something done right.
There are things that Ive forgotten, that I loved about the man,
But Ill always remember the love in Daddys hands.

Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was cryin.
Daddys hands, were hard as steel when Id done wrong.
Daddys hands, werent always gentle
But Ive come to understand.
There was always love in Daddys hands.

 

I remember Daddys hands, working 'til they bled.
Sacrificed unselfishly, just to keep us all fed.
If I could do things over, Id live my life again.
And never take for granted the love in Daddys hands.

 

Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was cryin.
Daddys hands, were hard as steel when Id done wrong.
Daddys hands, werent always gentle
But Ive come to understand.
There was always love in Daddys hands.
 

Daddy's hands were soft and kind when I was cryin.
Daddys hands, were hard as steel when Id done wrong.
Daddys hands, werent always gentle
But Ive come to understand.
There was always love .....
In Daddys hands.

 

 

TAY CHA

 

Con nhớ  tay cha chắp lại nguyện cầu

Vươn  tới m con xa c mộng  khuya

Mỗi một đường ngang, mỗi hằn chai sạn

l những chuyện đời  năm thng lo toan

 

Con nhớ tay cha m trn thn mẹ

Vỗ về lưng con khen gi cha ngoan

Biết bao nhiu điều về cha chẳng nhớ

Nhưng bn tay cha yu dấu no qun

 

Tay cha thật mềm những khi con khc

Tay cha như thp những lc con hư

Tay cha đu phải lc no cũng dịu

Nhưng con biết rằng chng ngt thương yu

 

Con nhớ tay cha lm khng ngừng nghỉ

Sướt đầu ngn tay nui nấng đn con

Gi thử m con một lần sống lại

Tnh  tay cha xin  trn i nhiều hơn

 

Tay cha thật hiền những khi con khc

Tay cha thật cứng những lc con hư

Tay cha đu phải lc no cũng nhẹ

Nhưng con hiểu rằng chng ngt thương yu

 

Tay cha thật hiền những khi con khc

Tay cha như thp những lc con hư

Tay cha đu phải lc no cũng nhẹ

Nhưng con hiểu rằng chng đậm thương yu
