After my father gave me his blessing
For the first time, saying, "God bless you"
As I left him to the darkness,
He held me there and kissed my hand.

For the first time saying, "God bless you"
In all the years that I had loved him,
He held me there and kissed my hand,
And the child shivered with delight.

In all the years that I had loved him,
We understood no need to speak.
The child shivered with delight;
The man in silence turned away.

We understood no need to speak
As I left him to the darkness.
The man in silence turned away
After my father gave me his blessing.
