My dear son, I am sorry for not being there,
But as much as I love you, I love being here.
Am sorry for not being a full time mom,
But I was just not designed to sit at home.
I am sorry for not cooking your meals,
But I got to be here to close a few deals.
I am sorry for not giving you a shower every morning,
But I got to earn my bread for the dinner this evening.
I got to be me, before I am yours,
I got to find myself, before I let you explore.
I am sorry for not being around, whenever you fall,
But I got to be on my own, to teach you how to stand tall.
But I want you to know, I have your back.
I will be next you, when you go off track
I want you to know, I will trust you when the world will not
I want you to know, your dad will be your buddy, no matter what.
But I also want you to know, don’t mess with us ever,
We are one when it comes to you, that will be the case forever.
