“This is the price you pay for having a great father. You get the wonder, the joy, the tender moments – and you get the tears at the end, too.”
– Harlan Coben
Father, we didn’t manage to spend enough time together so I could learn more about you, but I have been by your side long enough to love you with all my heart…. and I deeply feel your loss.
Dad, wherever you may be, I just need you to know that even though we’ve had our dark times, you’ve always been there for me and taught me so much. I truly miss you.
On the day you passed, I lost my guiding star. It hurts to think that you’re no longer around. I cannot help myself but smile with teary eyes when I think about our fun times together. And I miss those times more than anything else.
I feel bad for having wasted so many years of my life where I ignored your advice.
But now that you’re gone, I’m living my life guided by the lessons you taught me.
And although you taught me to always be strong, I cannot be strong enough to accept that I will never have the chance to spend time with you again.
Father, even though you are not in front of me right now, the memory of your smile will always have a firm place in my heart and soul.
I never thought losing my father would make me feel so empty and hopeless. I need you so much, dad.
We may have lived miles apart, but I always knew that whenever I needed you, you would help me out, and for that, I will never forget you.
I feel your absence more than ever now that there is no one I can rely on but myself in times of struggle.
Ever since my first conscious memory, you always took good care of me and helped me grow in all areas of life.
Each time I put flowers on your grave, I think about all the ways you enriched my existence. I miss you so dearly.
I wish I could have the opportunity to hug you for one last time. Because then I would hold you so tight and never let you go.
When I was a kid, I remember getting on your nerves on so many occasions. And once I grew up, I had a thousand opportunities to make you proud. And many times I did, but I missed so many chances to tell you how much you truly meant to me.
Every Father’s Day is another heavy arrow in my heart, reminding me of your absence. Dad, I wish I could celebrate it at least once more with you.
Everything in our family house reminds me of you… your favorite chair, your favorite cup, your tools in the garage…
I keep on thinking about you, even though it hurts so much. There’s nothing I won’t do to relive one of those precious moments we’ve had together.
Dad, no matter where life takes me, I will always keep you safe in my heart so that you are with me, keeping me strong anywhere I go.
And I hope that wherever you may be right now, you are in peace and are still keeping an eye on all of us from above. We all need you and miss you dearly, dad…and we cannot wait to reunite with you in the hereafter.
I think of you. I miss you. I need you. I pray for you. I love you… Now and forever.
