So over a year ago, I lost my father to a sudden and unexpected heart attack. Since then, I’ve been fighting with finding understanding in the universe for this sudden and heartbreaking loss. A man who busted his ass through his entire life to provide for his family, to then be robbed of his reward only two months ahead of retirement Though I haven’t found it, I still look around my life today and think, “Damn, I wish you could have seen what I’ve accomplished.” Because of you, I have achieved all I have today. I still love you, and miss you, and still cry over your absence. I still wish you were here and will forever miss you.
But because of him I have strength and courage to continue on. And every time I hear this I think of you. Because this is what you gave me:
"Wherever I am
you’ll always be more than just a memory….
She says ‘I’m okay. I’m alright.
Though you have gone from my life.
You said that it would
Now everything should be alright’.”
