Miklós Radnóti: To My Father in Heaven

Father up there in the sky!
Do you think sometimes of me?
Because I do often stare into space...  
And I’m thinking what a pity…
That you deceased so early... Daddy!

Many times when by life’s bumpy road
My feet stumble on those again and 
again mentioned earthen clods…
I am thinking what a pity…
That you're not with me... Daddy!

If on the life’s stormy sea –
A guiding strong hand I need…
How many times, oh, how many times I’d kiss
Your good hardworking, but sadly dead hand,
And I’m thinking that it’s a real pity…
That you left me alone – Daddy!
