Missing Dad

Dear Dad,

I can’t help but think about you, even though it brings me pain. I would give anything to relive our precious memories again. I miss you so much.

Being fatherless has left me feeling aimless, worthless, powerless, heartless, and helpless. The void you left behind is immeasurable. It hurts to think that you’re no longer here with us.

But amidst the tears, I can’t help but smile when I remember how much we cherished every moment we had together. From the time you cradled me in your arms to the day you walked me to my first day of school, those beautiful memories have shaped me into the person I am today.

Dad, wherever you are, I want you to know that deep down, my heart always knew you were right, no matter how much we fought and argued. I miss you more than words can express.

You taught me to be strong, but I have to admit, I’m letting you down. I don’t know if I’ll ever be strong enough to fully accept that you’re no longer here. The pain and longing continue to consume me.

I hope you can hear me, Dad. I hope you can feel the love and gratitude I have for you, even though you’re not physically here. I miss you with all my heart.
