EVERY DAY I WAKE UP AND WALK INTO MY COMPUTER ROOM AND THE FIRST THING I DO IS LOOK AT THE PICTURE ON THE BOOK SHELF NEXT TO MY DESK AND TELL THEM GOOD MORNING AND THAT I LOVE THEM,, I PRAY EVERY NIGHT AND MORNING TO JUST BE INVOLVED IN THEIR LIVES AND I KNOW ONE DAY MY PRAYER WILL BE ANSWERED ,, I DON'T KNOW WHEN BUT I KNOW IT WILL,,,

IN MY EYES IT SHOWS

 

THE PICTURE SITS ON THE STAND

REMINDING ME ALL OVER AGAIN

ABOUT THE CHANCE I LOST YEARS AGO

SOME THING I NOW SIT HERE AND LONG FOR

 

JUST ONE MOMENT TO SHARE

WHAT I HAVE COME TO FEEL INSIDE

FEELINGS FOR THOSE I DONT KNOW

TWO BABIES IN A PHOTO

 

TWINS, BORN SECONDS APART

I WASN'T ABLE TO BE THERE

WHEN THEY CAME FROM HEAVEN ABOVE

TO BE THE BIGGEST PART OF MY BEING

 

I SOME TIMES WRITE POETRY

ABOUT THINGS IN MY LIFE

SOME TIMES THE VERY THOUGHT MAKES ME CRY

CAUSE I CAN'T BE APART OF THEIR LIVES

 

MOM SAID I WAS NOT ANY GOOD

AND DIDN'T WANT ME INVOLVED

WHY? I HAVEN'T GOT A CLUE

JUST HER SELFIHNESS AND PRIDE

 

RAISING TWO CHILDREN ALL ALONE

I KNOW IT'S HARD TO DO

BUT WHEN I OFFER TO BE THERE

SHE SAID I DON'T CARE

 

SAD, YEAH I AM DEEP INSIDE

AND SOME TIMES IT SHOWS IN MY EYES

I SEE THEM ONCE IN AWHILE

AS I DRIVE BY THEIR PLACE

 

BUT I NEVER SEE A SMILE ON THEIR FACE

JUST A BLANK STARE THATS ALL I FIND

GUESS THEY ARE WONDERING WHERE I AM

AND IF I'LL EVER BE AROUND

 

LITTLE DO THEY KNOW

I REALLY WANT TO

BUT THINGS ARE NOT RIGHT

CAUSE ALL ME AND THEIR MOM DO IS FIGHT
