This is a repost from one of my oldest and second blog post “Father Day Special”, it is dedicated to my dad. πŸ’–

DEAR DAD, I long for your presence everyday;
I wish you hadn’t left so early.
Mother tells me great things about you,
Of the wonderful person you were
and the imprints you left behind are proof.
They say dads are the first heroes of their daughters
and I wish you could have been mine.
Grandpa was there to fill the void
and he did the best he could,
but my heart still longed for you.
People say you can’t miss someone you haven’t met
but I’ve missed you all my life;
and I’d give anything to see you even just for a day.

    1. Loosing a loved one is never is on anyone and time doesn’t really heal it I guess, missing someone you never had the chance to meet is even harder πŸ˜” I wish you more strength to go on and I’ll go check out your post on “Mom” I’m sure its an amazing one πŸ’
      Much love to you as well dearest Jane, I am immensely grateful for you πŸ’–πŸŒΈ


      1. I didn’t realize that she’s going. She was admitted and within one week she died. She was strong. Still I think about her and dream. My husband says accept it as it is God’s wish but it’s very difficult. You are so kind dear. Thank you and God bless you πŸ’—

  2. Tender and so true. Dad’s are a girl’s hero. Sorry yours left so early.
    I totally understand how you CAN miss someone who you don’t know or remember because you were so young.
    But writing this kind of letters, dedicate to him. And know what, he gets it. So keep doing it. Lovely.

      1. You’re more than welcome, Daphny. And I have a couple of friends who never got to meet their dads and they say the same thing. πŸ’” There’s still a void in your heart whether you knew him or not. And my heart goes out to you, honey. I’m sorry I didn’t add that in my first comment. πŸ€—πŸ’–πŸ¦‹

  3. Ohw, so painful a poem 😒😒😭. My heart bled too, for his absence. I know, a father’s love means the world to his daughters just like a mother’s is to her sons. May his soul be at peace. May God grant you peace and strength too, always, dear.
