At the funeral, a strange old man,
Long ago, I was your dad.
I left you once. I know you hate me.
I’ll leave again, but first a history.

Your mom didn’t want me. She didn’t want a man.
She longed for the touch, of a female hand.
She denied herself, and found in me,
A fight she could lose, conveniently.

We only accept the love, we think we deserve.
As a worthless man, I accepted hers.
And I know I broke your heart, and made you feel you weren’t worthwhile
I didn’t come here to be judged, or be put on trial.

I just want to say, to her and you,
Goodbye and sorry, for what I couldn’t do.
Call if you’d like. I’m not around much.
I don’t live far. Let’s keep in touch.
