Last Night (An Ode to Tiana)

I told you that night, around 5 some of the dark things in my life like/
And I'm not saying it's right, but we all gotta learn/
Innocence leaves like dad did, overnight /
And a diamond ring wasn't one of the things I bought/
It's not my fault, I'm a moth attracted to light whenever I see it/
Like sunshine comes from your smile but you need to look to see it/
I hope reading this you smile, or cry/
Not cry, but a tear because that means I managed to breakthrough/
and managed to make you feel how I do/
Make you a deal like I do/
And this is real like how warmth is/
The difference between your mother's car seat and me is that/
I don't turn off my warmth at the flick of a switch/
But my warmth is difference/
I don't warm because it's cold, I warm for comfort/ 
And for meaning but it's uncomfortable for you to say you're uncomfortable around me because/
At this point, the only thing I can do for you is to make you feel comfort/
And if I failed my job, and I failed to do so... Then I really fucked up/
I'm sorry love doesn't come like news, everyday and serious but/
when it comes once a blue moon it makes the wolves delirious/
And I hope your birthday is another way to grow/ 
Without me for the show/
And anywhere you go I hope you know that/
Guys fuck up, that's a lifelong thing, as teens as adults as dads/
And the only thing to be for them is to be sad/
But this isn't an excuse to use when we do/ 
Just a matter of fact/
And the fact is you matter/
