JUST A THOUGHT
Let the earth that lies beneath us be a witness to the feelings
That I have and try to share with you today.
For there’s a fight raging inside of me that bites a little too hard
And tho’ I try I cannot make it go away.
It’s such a shame you never waited until my hurt had all subsided
For you could have come and eased away the pain.
But I guess you never wanted to, or didn’t even think about
The pain you gave me once, then once again.
Had I known you as a person, instead of just a father
Perhaps some things I’d maybe understand.
But nothing could convince me, if I’d known you all your lifetime
That when you up and left it wasn’t planned.
So as I try to juggle pieces of your life, to fit together
Spare a thought for me as you look down below.
For here sits someone who needed you, not once but very often
The boy you made but didn’t want to know.
