Daddy, I loved you my whole life and life without you is really no life at all.
Daddy, I stopped celebrating my birthday anymore
I didn’t know how immense a hole
your passing would leave.
I didn’t realise how much loneliness
I was about to sense.
I was only twelve years old
When mum told me had you died.
I didn’t fully know what it meant.
I felt traumatised, but I still cried.
It’s supposed to be a happy day. A celebration of my life
Just one last chance, I wish I could get to hug you.
One day I hope we gather up again.
Then I would hold you tight. I don’t want to you let go. I miss you, daddy.
There are no remedies
To a difficulty like this,
So I’ll relish your memory,
And grieve the years we’ll miss.
They say misery is easier
to endure as time goes by,
But that doesn’t stop me
from deliberating why?
Today of all days, I miss you more than I think I can even bear.
You left me with the gift of love.
You will endure in my heart until then.
Your star is always splendid for me from above.
