Dear Dad,
Today I was at the shopping mall and I spent a lot of time reading the Father’s Day cards. They all had a special message that in some way or another reflected how I feel about you. Yet as I selected and read, and selected and read again, it occurred to me that not a single card said what I really want to say to you.
亲爱的爸爸:
今天我在商场的时候, 我读了好长时间的有关“父亲节”的贺卡。那些卡片上面的文字很特别,也或多或少地表达出了我对您的感受。我挑选读过一次后,又挑选读了一遍,但那并不是一张贺卡所能表达出我想对您说的话的。

You’ll soon be 84 years old, Dad, and you and I will have had 55 Father’s Days together. I haven’t always been with you on Father’s Day nor have I been with you for all of your birthdays. It wasn’t because I didn’t want to be with you. I’ve always been with you in my heart but sometimes life gets in the way.
爸爸,很快您就要84岁了,您和我也将度过这第55个“父亲节”。“父亲节”的那天,我总是不能和您在一起,连您过生日的时候我也是这样,但这并不是因为我不想陪在您身边。其实,在我心里,我总是和您在一起。不过,有的时候,生活也会有差错。

You know, Dad, there was a time when we were not only separated by the generation gap but completely polarized by it. You stood on one side of the Great Divide and I on the other, father and daughter split apart by age and experience, opinions, hairstyles, cosmetics, clothing, curfews, music, and boys.
爸爸,您也知道,我们父女俩曾有一段时间因为代沟不在一起过,比如年龄、个人阅历、观点、发型、化妆、服装、音乐、作息时间以及男朋友,因为这些,我们的观点也非常对立。您站在“大分离”的一端,我站在“大分离”的另一端。

The Father-Daughter Duel of ’54 shifted into high gear when you taught me to drive the old Dodge and I decided I would drive the ‘54 Chevy whether you liked it or not. The police officer who escorted me home after you reported the Chevy stolen late one evening was too young to understand father-daughter politics and too old to have much tolerance for a snotty 16 year old. You were so decent about it, Dad, and I think that was probably what made it the worst night of my life.
那时,您教我学开那部道奇旧车,可我却不管您喜欢不喜欢执意要开雪拂兰’54那辆车。当时,我们父女俩关于雪拂兰汽车的争执也调到了最高挡。可那天晚上,您却报警说雪拂兰车被盗。之后,一个警官把我护送到家,可他太年轻了,根本不明白我们父女俩之间的政治斗争,可他也不小了,对一个16岁的流鼻涕的小孩却没有太多的耐心。爸爸,您倒对这件事处理得很体面,而我想那可能是我一生中最糟糕的一个夜晚吧。
