Life......Bad To Good.....
The first few days, I was just bummed out
I missed my girls, but knew what it was about
Days turned to weeks, phone calls rang through
Hearing they didn't like me, not much I could do
My life went to hell, I drove it there fast
Things are now better, thats all in the past.
The first few visits, the trial run
We warmed up a little, we had some fun
Visiting me in the hospital, quite a surprise
Even at my worst it gave me a rise!
Now the phone calls come 3 times a day,
I hear about school, know what they play.
It's been almost a year, and I wasn't sure
How much pain we all could endure.
But as things get better, i'm excited to say
I'll even get to see them later today!
We'll talk and we'll play, practicing for...
Being the daddy I was was before.
