You love me as your own Didn't hesitate a thought To care for me Quiet in your guidance Play your part As the tower by a fault But you hardly sway Flawed as anyone But unselfish in a helping way Sacrifices defined by parenthood Push your ego to the side to look out for the child's good And now that I've matured You and mom's did ya thang I turned out decent enough From what I hear today This rap thing partly yo fault I fell in love wit the LLs, MELLE Mel's, boom baps and squawked A rhythm through my head and let the pages go and talk Till I got bold enough to go off A mixture of the music & CDs you made for me Maybe we could retire you Moms gracefully Up in a nice house, Or a condo livin safe in peace Comfortable life, beyond your basic needs Wouldn't you agree That the role of a dad transcend beyond a seed Stability is what a kid needs And I was blessed wit extra foundation Two fathers, But see, it ain't till maturity when realized what you did for me Let me take you back to that lil man Sickly kid, held in your arms with your workin hands A few months in marriage And that's where the work began Momma at the navalbase, And you work with her to plan a future How do you feel as you see a baby Not your own, barely grown yourself And you partner to raise me They say we are the sum of who meet I've known you all my life And the music is what made me So I just can't blame me for this spittin Cause you, you sparked that interest An obsession wit learnin bout the craft and in the business Pennin raps in my classes I admit, I should've listened Maybe I'd have passed a test or two if verses wasn't written But that's what happens when passions don't overlap academics A lack of motivation and making of bad decisions But I'm off on a tangent Understand this is a token of my gratitude And I'd never diminish a mother's love But I'm so glad you could be part of my life And all the pages that I've yet author As I barter time, and I become smarter I'll always love you And recognize you as my father
