Tata a fost, acum nu mai este!
Trecerea lui prin viata e o poveste!
O poveste frumoasa, plina de învataminte,
De buna seama, de care vom lua aminte.

Absenta lui, de când s-a dus,
Nu ne-ndeamna doar la plâns.
Din inima simtim nevoia
Sa îi cinstim memoria!

Oriunde ne vom duce,
Orice am face,
El va fi cu noi,
Odihneasca-se în pace!
