Happy Father's Day

I recycle the following post from Mother's Day - only the last two sentences changed.
The following is my translation from some one's recent work (sorry, cannot find the name of the author). Hopefully I did not do a bad job to do injustice to the author. I changed some words as some could not be translated effectively. The poem is simple but very touching. If you do not feel anything, please rush to the nearest clinic to check what's wrong with you. :)

There is more in life than making money.

I cried two times that are unforgettable in my life.

The first time when I started in this world.
The second time when you ended in this world.

The first time I do not know but from your mouth.
The second time you do not know but from my heart.

Between these two crises, we had endless laughs.
For the last 30 years, the joyful laughs had been repeated, repeated...

You taught me every lesson in life.
I remember every lesson for the rest of my life.
