to my daddy

To my daddy

I don’t know how to put these words in place I love you so much
At times I sit and stare wondering if you’re going to return and relieve me from this 
When they told me you died I was like stop lying that can’t be true not Gary not him he didn’t 
deserve to die he’s my father my world my life my mind cant stop spinning with thoughts 
Why can’t they stop?
The funeral almost killed me wanting to crawl in the casket with you but couldn’t 
I can’t understand…
I see everyone with their father you were my everything and still are my entire life
I thought life was supposed to be like finish high school, graduate from school ,go to college, 
get married have you to walk me down the aisle, be a grandpa and I love you forever more 
I guess life and destiny got in the way
I’m praying that I’ll make it to heaven to see you fall in your arms and cry till I can’t no more 
Lord please forgive me 
Daddy I wish I could see you one last time and explain and express and  tell you everything 
(things changed after you died) mom is tripping and blaming me for everything when its not 
my fault
Please come back 
If your listening to me dad know I love you…

    He was young to die...I know that was hard on you and your family...That has been five years now and you still are grieving for the loss you experienced...He was such an important part of your life from what you have written...Do you have a grandfather or uncle that you could turn to share your grieve or receive support when you need a father figure to lean upon?
