    Goodmornin, I just came to aplogize
    if I didnt say I love you enough
    I also wanted to say
    that I got real close
    Im mean like winning a trifector at the
    race track
    Babygirl I came real close
    to being a good father
    I know I should have
    held you more
    and made you feel like Daddy's #1 girl
    instead I laid held up for a measly bill
    that my general assistance should have helped paid
    Which reminds me, I need to write a letter to my congressman
    Who do they think can survive off of 134.00 a month
    I swear Baby Bush...Needs his *** whipped!
    But back to the subject at hand,
    I see my scatter thoughts, and mindless jokes
    still dont amuse enough ...
    Daughter, Im sorry I didnt make you smile more
    I really wanted to give you all the things
    that you yearned for
    My understanding
    A listening ear
    A chest to crawl to when the world treats you unfair
    A baritone voice, to make sure they knew
    I could make them disappear
    Im sorry we didnt play red light, green light more often
    Im sorry we had 10 years where
    you didnt, see-- hear--- Remember
    me anymore?
    Im also sorry the only time you heard goodmorning from me
    was the the morning after my wake
    I thought I'd stopped by
    since you couldnt sleep
    To say
    Babygirl, although Im not there in the physical sense
    I was never there in the flesh to begin with
    I do want you to know
    My apologies really mean nothing at this point
    But I needed you to know
    I never regretted you
    I regretted me for not being the man God intended me to be
    You were never a mistake
    The mistake was I took something so precious
    as a woman's womb and made a mockery of it
    Never once considering the impact of
    LIFE
    Life, thats funny I dont feel Ive had much of any life
    I somehow hope that reincarnation is in my future
    Because if I had a chance to it all ova again
    I would say goodmorning every day
    I would walk you down the isle on your wedding day
    Do they allow those in the Family lifestyle?
    I would tell you I love you
    I would make you proud of me
    I would eliminate sorry from my
    vocabulary
