Happy Birthday Trey, part 2

I wish we could talk just today

But your mom just hung up the phone

I didn't know what to say

So I just hummed all alone

I kept the phone to my ear

I admit I was hurt

The silent tone was too clear

She made it all about her

I made mistakes, I'm not perfect

That's why I'm not at home with ya

But she tries to hurt me on purpose

So I'm left lookin at pictures

She loves the power she has

To accept or deny

But Trey, I'm forever your dad

And son, grown men cry

If you ever feel empty

Don't turn it to hate

Because that turns into envy

And love is too great

I'm not there like I want

But I'll still grow and be better


Hope you get my card and my letter
