A Tribute to Pa
The Most Precious Name Poem by Levi Sap Nei Thang
Pa, the most precious name of my life,
One word, so simple, yet it cuts like a knife,
I could have called you Papa, but Pa feels right,
A bond so strong it shines like a guiding light.
In the depths of my dreams, I called out to you, Pa
A name so precious it resonates within my heart
I long for your response, a voice that shapes my life
Just one word, Pa, enough to bridge the miles apart.
Pa, the name that echoes in my heart,
I called you deeply in my dream right from the start,
Longing for your response, oh so dear,
Your voice, a melody that I always want to hear.
You could’ve been called Papa, but Pa is all I need
A bond so strong, it’s evident in every word I speak
A man who never fails always amazes me
Even in my dreams, I call your name so desperately.
Could you hear me from afar, in the silence of the night?
Did your spirit feel my call as I yearned for your embrace?
Did you wake up suddenly, feeling someone’s longing plight?
Did you suddenly wake up, feeling my plea?
Did you sense the yearning, the love that’s meant to be?
In the depths of your spirit, did my call reside?
Pa, I hope you felt me in that distant time and space.
The love I can’t hide.
Through the years, you’ve been my rock, my guiding light
With your love and wisdom, you’ve made everything all right
In every tone of your voice, I find comfort and peace
Pa, you’re the one who brings my soul such sweet release.
Through laughter and tears, you’ve stood by my side
A pillar of strength, my hero, my guide
No matter the distance, our bond remains strong
Pa, you’re the words that written in my every poems.
A man who never failed me, through thick and thin,
You amaze me, Pa, with the love you bring within,
Even in my dreams, I yearn for your embrace,
Did you hear my call in that distant space?
Through laughter and tears, you’ve been my rock,
A pillar of strength, even when times were tough,
Your love and guidance never fade away,
Pa, you’re the reason I smile every day.
I traveled all over the world, from east to west
Saw the beauty of each city, put my mind at rest
But amidst the grandeur, there’s something I hold dear
A man who’s always been there, wiping away my tears.
Your wish came true beyond what you could imagine
As I roam the globe, but nothing compares to your glance
But behind my success, there’s a simple man
Who prays for me daily with a grand heart.
Oh, Pa, you’re the one who believed in me
You saw the spark within that others couldn’t see
No matter where I go, your love will always be
The guiding light that leads me back to thee
In every foreign land, I feel your presence near
Your love transcends borders, wiping away my fear
No matter how far I roam or how long I’m away
Your prayers keep me grounded each day
So here’s to you, Pa, the rock of my foundation
Your love and prayers have shaped my destination
I traveled all over the world, but my heart remains with you
For no distance can ever break the bond that’s true.
So here’s to you, Pa, the one who never fails
With gratitude and love, this poem I proudly unveil
For you, my dear Pa, the most precious name of all
Forever grateful, I’ll continue to stand tall.
Pa, this poem is for you, my love so true,
Thank you for being there, for all that you do,
No matter the distance, our hearts are entwined,
Pa, I am forever grateful for your love; I’m defined.
