Keeping you in my mind is easy – it’s what I end up doing every day.
I always think of you and most people aren’t even aware that I spend so much time reliving our shared memories.
You were one of the people I couldn’t imagine living without. You helped me become who I am and without your help, I would not have become so kind-spirited. It is truly difficult for me to accept the fact that I can no longer spend time with you even though I will always keep you in my heart.
Sometimes I feel alright and I can go through the day normally but often I find myself falling apart even though some time has passed without you in my life. And that is something no one prepares you for. They tell you it gets easier with time but it’s been years and I realize this isn’t true.
I so much regret not telling you how much I loved you more often.
You might have had a fulfilling and meaningful life but you weren’t that old and you deserved a little more time with all of us by your side. Words cannot express how much you are missed. The pain that I am feeling on a daily basis is something I both despise and cherish. I despised it because it feels like losing you, again and again, every single day. I cherish it because it reminds me of what an incredible human being you were.
You were always by my side when everyone else doubted me. You saw the potential in me, helped me become the best possible version of myself, and helped me achieve so much in my life. You were and always will be my one and only true hero.
You are a person that I cannot simply forget, and to be honest – I would never want to forget you.
You taught me how to appreciate the little things in life.
You taught me that I have the potential to do everything I set my mind to and you showed me how to look at the world with different eyes. You made sure I had everything I needed to be happy as a child and you made a warrior out of me as a grownup. In my memory, you left some of the most precious moments of my life, and for that, I would never be able to thank you enough.
You did everything you could, and more, to make sure my life was as beautiful as it could have possibly been while expecting nothing in return. I miss you so dearly and regardless of all the pain and suffering I am going through right now, at least I can relive the times we’ve spent together in my mind and my heart.
Thank you, Dad, for showing me what a true hero is supposed to look like.
