Tim's Prayer: Growing up Without a Dad
Mom said you would be my Daddy, and I want to believe it's true.
We even read it in the Bible; it's something I try and hold onto.
But I just wish I could touch you; look into your eyes and see you smile;
have you cheering at my baseball game; or take me fishing for a while.
I've got questions about things I don't know, and mom does the best she can.
But she really can't be an example on how to become a godly man.
So I was wondering Jesus, if you could find me a man who cares.
It is only for a short time - just until I get up there.
Well thanks for listening to me, and I hope that you're not mad.
It's just hard sometimes; growing up without a dad
