"I Will Be Down Three Years" by Ryan J. Smith
I will be down 3 years
But I’ll be back
I you love to infinity and beyond. You should know that.
I hope you believe that 2 years down, 1 more to go
I’m missing watching you grow 4 years old. I want you to know you are more than my baby girl, girl you are my entire world.
You ever look up at the night sky, fix your eyes on the moon and ask yourself, “Daddy where are you?”
Daddy will be home real soon
I’m shooting for the stars
Open your arms, this time I’m never letting go.
I’ll be down three years and I’m never gonna stop
I’m climbing climbing to the top
It’s hard to believe I’m hated
On so much, doing time gets
So tough, I want to give up.
Enough is enough.
This time I refuse to give in
Because this isn’t the end.
Sometimes I ask myself “why bother?”
I’ll tell you why I bother.
I want you to be as proud to call
Me your father as I am to call you
My daughter. I’ll be down 3 years, but
We’ll never be apart. We’ll be together forever.
You’ll always be right here in my heart.
If I could have just one wish, I’d
Wish to get back the years I’ve missed.
I’d wish for a hug, for a way to express
My love. I’d wish for a million wishes
So I could give you a million kisses.
Above all, I want you to know
I’ll be down 3 years and my love
For you still grows like a beautiful
Blue rose. And as the blue rose
Grows, I’ll rise, too, and one day I will
Show the world how much I love you.
Until then I’ll keep searching for
Peace although I’m torn to pieces
The only peace I find,
I find in Jesus.
