Fathers always know

Time is a passer-by
as cruel as a spoiled boy,
but fathers never die,
and fathers always know.

He will never teach you
how to ride a bike
and will never say
you can choose whatever you like.

How long is an hour in Heaven?
Are you back in the world?
Prodigal sons can always ask the sky,
then try to hide their tears.

Is it really never too late?
What is stronger than fate?
Fathers never die,
fathers only know!
