Letter to My Dad *R.I.P*


Sometimes I miss you so bad I just want to give up, but I know that's not what you would want me to do. So I keep trying. It just gets so hard, looking at the world around me, knowing you'll never be a part of it again. I didn't tell you I loved you enough, but I do and I always will, no matter what I do, or where I go. I'm trying to do what you would've wanted me to do, but it's hard when you're not here making me do the right thing like you used to do. The last day I was with you I remember looking into your eyes and I could see all the love you had for me, for us. It was so hard watching you lay in the hospital bed, so motionless. I wanted to tell you I loved you one last time, but I was too late. I know people lose their parents all the time, but it's different for me. You were the ONLY person who understood me. No one else tried. I want to come be with you now because there is nothing for me here, but I have to keep going, trying to do right. It's hard to imagine going my whole life without you. I never really had to think about it. I thought you would always be here with me. But you're gone and I don't know what to do.

Always remember that I love you and watch over me.
Help me do the right things. I love you with everything
in me!

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
