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.
