The Love I Never Had
If I could, I would give you the love I never had
Growing up as a child, raised without a dad
I wish I could hold you, I wish I could kiss you
God, how much I miss you,
Watching you grow from jail is hard, communication is
Kind of scarce, it’s definitely difficult.
You’re growing a lot, you’re growing fast, I know it’s hard
Without your dad.
I wish I could give you the love I never had, giving
You advice and comfort when you’re sad,
Talk about girls, you know the birds and the bees,
Helping with education, congratulations on good grades
A’s and B’s.
The tough love when you bad, crying when you mad
Or just little silly things just to make you laugh.
Teaching you to fight, you know I can spar with
You, instead I’m in here, thinking how much I miss you.
I wish I could give you the love I never had.
The warmth and security of a supporting family no
Matter what they have, without a real father
Figure life turned out to be bad, I wish I could
Give you the love I never had, I know it upsets
You, I know it makes you sad but I hope to make
The best of our future and learn from the past,
I wish I could be there for you, I wish, I could
Be your dad.
