Dad. Daddy

Dad, can you see me now?

 I was only allowed to meet John

right before he was gone.

Always wondering honestly,

What did I do wrong?

I love you daddy,

Only came out of my mouth one night only, sadly

After seeing him face to face In that hospital bed

Desperately, trying to connect, with a man,

soon to be dead.

Yeah, I'll visit your grave,

But it's your hugs and voice I crave

Our future's are unknown I pray to see Joshua all grown

He won't feel what I felt growing up,

feeling alone

Hearing John's voice

My heart and spirit melt

I'm not really close to

Most of Kim's side

I'm unsure if John's side

Is down with me

On this very bumpy ride

Only time will tell,

Currently I'm getting divorced

Child custody is hell

Jackie don't want me involved

I can't wait for divorce to be resolved

That's what I'm going through

What about all of you?

I could really use my dad right now

Besides prayer, I don't know how

I was only allowed to meet John,

right before he was gone.

My Dad ! 2010

            My Dad! 2010

When i was born my dad smiled form ear to ear

and he kept on smiling thru out all his years

he taight me kindness and of love

with a lot of help from up above

my childhood was sometimes tears

my dad chased away all my fears

my dad taught me to be all i should

and dad never gave up until i could

when i got married i was full of fear

my dad raged and prayed rivers of tears

and when he died he never knew

my life was better and brand new

i dedicate my life to him

for the courage to never give in

because off all the battles i've faced

his prayers and tears never ceased

when he died he took with him

a piece of my heart hes had with in

i will never forget his sacrifice

and to see him again will be my price !!!

I love you Dad !
