View Full Version : A Letter to my Father

06-03-2007, 09:28 PM
I sit and think of how much time we missed.
Thinking of all the things I wish you'd been there for.
The times in my life that I needed you.
Seeing me get married,
Watching me grow,
Seeing my success in life.
I know in my heart the you are proud.
But there are times I wish I could hear you say it.
Times that I wonder what my life would be like,
If you'd been there for me.
I know you would have stayed if you could.
I know the pain you were in was great.
I am jealous because now,
God has you forever,
And I hardly got you at all.
But I know we will be reunited.
One glad day,
I will meet both my fathers.
As much as I love God,
I love you more.
See you soon!

That was beautiful, my lady.
You really have a gift with words to make someone feel what you mean.

Aww... I love it, Freedom!!
I lost a nephew few years back, and your writing - especially "I am jealous now, because God has you forever", describes how I feel when thinking of him :(
He died in a car accident, speeding, drinking, drugs involved.. he wa merely a passenger - all 3 of them died at the age of 18... I miss him so much
