SADNESS
Mavado


did tell you it was coming; the celebration of fathers. I am not going to make this a controversial entry because there was no controversy surrounding fatherhood for me. Sperm-donor is a label heard ever so often being used to refer to fathers, stemming from their absence in their child/children's life. It is quite appalling the number of fatherless homes that exist today. With this in mind, it gives us an even greater reason to celebrate those who are still here and those who left us in body but are still with us in spirit. They can teach those that left or were just never there, how to be a father.
Sadness
By Movado
INTRO
My Son, until dat day when our souls meet again….guidance and protection
Reach out to all the lost long gone souls
Even my father was a rasta man pan di battlefield, ino
Selassie I yu son remember di I
Sadness from yu gone Jah know is sadness
Sadness from yu gone daddy is sadness
I remember day goes by when it was gladness
Now is sadness from yu gone, sadness from yu gone
Sadness from yu gone Jah know is sadness
Sadness from yu gone daddy is sadness
I remember day goes by when it was gladness
Now is sadness from yu gone, sadness from yu gone
Remember when we use to smoke together
Sit and chat about life and run joke together
Even though you were my father
We stick together as a friend or even as a bredda, yeah
But now yu gone, Jah Jah know
It hurts me deep inside Jah Jah know
Jah Jah know, only Jah Jah know
Omega know what am going through
Sadness from yu gone Jah know is sadness
Sadness from yu gone Tigo is sadness
I remember day goes by when it was gladness
Now is sadness from yu gone, sadness from yu gone
Sadness from yu gone Jah know is sadness
Sadness from yu gone Jah know is sadness
I remember day goes by when it was gladness
Now is sadness from yu gone, sadness from yu gone

Mi think so hard and smoke di weed fi tek di pain out
If mi neva high mi wudda try fi blow mi brain out
All dem evil work weh dem a gwaan wid a go fade out
Non a dem kyaah pass tru zion gate
Daddy use to tell mi rasta a di order
Rasta bun dem bridges rasta bun dem dutty border
All weh dem a gwaan wid man a lef dem to di Faada
A righteous rasta man dem kill
Sadness from yu gone daddy is sadness
Sadness from yu gone Jah know is sadness
Man remember day goes by when it was gladness
Now is sadness from yu gone, sadness from yu gone
Sadness from yu gone, sadness
I & I man a go on
Di gangsta yute a hold strong
God knows God knows, hey
Sadness from yu gone
Jah live, Jah live, Jah live Jah live
Jah live, jah live, yeah,
Sadness from yu gone Jah know is sadness
Sadness from yu gone daddy is sadness
I remember day goes by when it was gladness
Now is sadness from yu gone, sadness from yu gone
Sadness from yu gone Jah know is sadness
Sadness from yu gone daddy is sadness
I remember day goes by when it was gladness
Now is sadness from yu gone, sadness from yu gone
Repeat 1
Memba when we use to smoke together
Sit and chat about life and run joke together

Sadness from yu gone daddy is sadness
Sadness from yu gone Jah know is sadness
I remember day goes by when it was gladness
Now is sadness from yu gone, sadness from yu gone
Selassie I

(Song fades to end)
Some of the most lasting memories of my time on this earth stemmed from the relationship that I had with my father. There were good and bad moments but at the end of it all, there was always a lesson to be learnt. Whether these lessons were directly taught or were learnt from the mere presence of the experience, I cherish and hold every minute dear to my heart. Who I am today has largely been contributed to by the moments I shared with my father. One of the things that I have realized from my experience and from those of others is that men who grew up without the presence of a father, when given the opportunity, become great fathers. There are some men who think that if they cannot provide their child with material things then they cannot make any other contributions so it makes sense for them to leave. The reality of life is, a father being able to provide materially for a child is nowhere near half of the requirements of being a father, the major elements that are needed cannot be bought or even seen.
Daddy From Yu Gone

INTRO

Hey dad, this one is reaching out to you (reaching out to you)
Yu neva no sperm donor

Kaaz from yu gone I no wear no propa clothes
Daddy from yu gone mi know mi did a go struggle

So pan yu tomb I a lef a bunch a rose
Good gosh

Yu drop out too soon yu neva get fi lef a will
Mi sistas haffi hustle like hooka sopm (hustle, hustle, hard fi di dollar bill)
Daddy big Sunday morning I no eat no breakfast
White squall tek ova mi mouth like lip gloss
Mi drop out from a first class scholar student straight back to B class (seh so)
And now mi haffi look pan (d)I kyaar dem a pass
Tru mi look so shabby dem a wind up dem glass
Ski mask robbing come iina mi thoughts
But yu seh di narrow road mi fi walk
So link Flava Squad and mi get a bad riddim

Our father, thanks I'll be giving
Daddy but a miss yu still
Daddy from yu gone mi know mi did a go struggle

Kaaz from yu gone I no wear no propa clothes
Daddy from yu gone mi know mi did a go struggle
Mi know seh mi did a go struggle
My life on earth a no bed a rose
So pan yu tomb I a lef a bunch a rose
Ef mi fi seh certain tings dad yu turn and twist inna yu grave
Family wudda shame weh treat I like slave
A no seh dat I no brave but di Most High mek mi behave
So mi seh music yu save mi, music yu save
When time di pagans dem a try enslave mi
A try kill mi talent weh di Most High gave mi
A just chuu mi skill mek dem no grave mi
Dad a wish yu were around to see ma three sons grow
Wah mek dat hurt most, dem look like you
Mama seh mi stay focus just like you
Mi stay Gucci from mi cap to mi shoe
So daddy rest in peace, seh a likkle praiya fi mi from above
Mi deh yah pan di gully side a chill said a Mov
More time di pressure hit mi mi link di gaza thug
But mi neva buss a slug
Daddy from yu gone mi know mi did a go struggle

Kaaz from yu gone I no wear no propa clothes

Yu know what am talking about
A seh so Khago

(Song ends)
There aren't many songs present that contribute to the celebration of fathers. However, I was able to find four that are ideal for this entry. They speak to two topics, the gap that is left after the loss of a brilliant father and the dedication that a real father will make to ensure his family is comfortable. I can relate to both. On the night of April 27, 2007, my father was taken from my life as a result of the carelessness of a taxi driver but to the end he is the best father ever. The lyrics of each song appeal to the different effects of have a wonderful father.

Dear Dad (The Letter)
By Ky-Mani Marley
INTRO
Yeah well this is the letter, whoa
Yeah well this is the letter, whoa
Yeah well this is the letter (chuckle)
Eeey goes like this, now
Dear God I have a letter here from me to dad
And I want to let you know might be a little sad
Dear God letter here from me to dad
And I want to let you know, it goes
Dear dad I didn't get to know you
And sometimes I sit and wonder and it makes me blue
But there is one memory that stays on the back of my mind
And this memory got me thinking bout you all the time
Whoa, I swear we miss you so
And I wish that you was here to see your boys grow
In case you are wondering, mommy she's doing fine
And she tell me stories bout you papa all the time
So when I am down and out, lonely or I'm feeling blue
All I do dada dad is think of you
The thoughts alone, erase my fear and dries my tears
I am just writing to let you know someone cares
Yeah I love you, really really love you
Daddy I miss you I miss you
And I know my brothers and sisters do too
Hey I love you really really love you
Oh Lord so true, do
And I know you gave your love to the people
And some of whom you thought you did trust they deceived you
But the trial brings another day
At least that's what my mamma say
And den, when I'm through I'll place this letter in the bible
And I'm going pray to Jah to send his disciples
To deliver you this letter, lord
It will make me feel much better now I sing
Dear God I have a letter here from me to dad
And I want to let you know might be a little sad
Dear God letter here from me to dad
And I want to let you know
P.S.
So much things I'd like to know and so much things to say
But I'm gonna save cause I know we'll be together some day
Am just writing to let you know someone cares
And to let you know you left the whole world in tears, whao
Yeah I swear, whooawooa, now
Yeah daddy I love you, really really love you
Daddy I miss you I miss you
And I know my brothers and sisters do too
Hey I love you really really love you
Oh, hear we go, hey
Dear dad I didn't get to know you
And sometimes I sit and wonder and it makes me blue
But there is one memory that stays on the back of my mind
And this memory got me thinking bout you all the time
Whoa, I swear we miss you so
And I wish that you was here to see your boys grow
In case you are wondering, mommy she's doing fine
And she tell me stories bout you papa all the time
So when I am down and out, lonely or I'm feeling blue
All I do dada dad is think of you
The thoughts alone, erase my fear and dries my tears
I am just writing to let you know someone cares
Yeah I love you, really really love you
Daddy I miss you I miss you
And I know my brothers and sisters do too
Hey I love you really really love you
Daddy I miss you…
