I got 10 months left in this Penitentiary
Being without you makes it feel like a century

I will never come back, when I see my son's face
I want to spend the rest of my life cheering you up when you're down
I swear I will change this time around

I love this poem because I just had a son 2 months ago and his dad was in prison also for his birth. he has been in there for 7 months and has 2 more to go. so he wont get to see him until he is 4 months old. sad.
