Father

Featuring Brotha J

Ya, I’ve got a father too
But far from like you
Brought up by a single mama in a small apartment
Or a basement or a tight room
I always wrote it off
Like he was only 19 and probably immature
So they fought and obviously couldn’t get along
It’s not anything for me to get all emotional for
I saw him on the weekend
Or every other one
Or once a month
I loved my time with him
Our long talks where he’d impart wisdom
Sipping his cup of liquor
In retrospect, he was more of a friend than a (constant) father figure
Once he told me to always appreciate my mom
Because while he got afraid to father me she stayed strong
Probably why he’s so proud of these decisions I’ve made
I had to use the computer and Google how to shave
Alone
But you won’t have to do the same
Because imma stay right here
No it's no bother
Couldn't feel more proper
You'll be my son
And I'll be your father
And no matter what life brings
I love you
Won't just say
I love you
Or just sing
I love you
I'll be your father
No weekends for me
I’m coming home to you
See, I’m the norm to you
Not a special occasion you look forward to
You know you’re going to see me because it’s normal to
You follow me from room to room and imitate
Assimilate to my personality traits
Raise you basically merely by being present
See how he naturally conforms to my beliefs and ethics
Every sentence you mention
And form within my presence
I experience a step toward perfection
Though the path is NevR ending
Daddy has your back
And I will guide you as a living lesson
To my very essence
God bless him
And bless God for the blessed presence with you
Yahweh supports
It’s important you get the message
I will help you comprehend it
Remind you when you forget it
Just continue
I’m beside you for protection
No fear
Because I will stay right here
No it's no bother
Couldn't feel more proper
You'll be my son
And I'll be your father
And no matter what life brings
I love you
Won't just say
I love you
Or just sing
I love you
I'll be your father
