I Miss You Dad!

Published: February 2006

When I was a little girl,
I can still remember our happy moments we shared together.
People said that because I'm the only girl in the family, aside from my mom
That I'm a spoiled brat, but I guess I'm not.

You're my mentor, you taught me a lot of things in life, moral values,
Respect for elders, things that is useful to our everyday life.
As a Dad, you showed me of the how, the why, and the where,
No matter what has come about; you were always there.

That was spring of 2002 when I heard the news.
The doctor said you're in pain, and there's nothing they could do.
The result of your biopsy was you have cancer of the liver,
After I heard that, my world starts to shiver.

You talked to me and said you are dying,
My heart breaks when I heard you crying.
3 weeks later, you've left me.
That was so painful and the hardest thing to accept, for a grieving daughter that I am.

Years may come and go, but your memory will never be erased.
I once knew a man, who gave love at his best,
And no one can ever take your place. I miss you so much DAD!

I lost my best friend. My whole entire world crashed before my eyes. My dad had a fatal heart attack (it's called the widow maker) in my mom's room. My mom and neighbor started CPR. They did it till the ambulance got there 30 minutes later and then the medical team tried for 30 mins, but it was too late. I sat on the floor next to him, held his hand and just screamed. You were ready and I wasn't. I love and miss you so much, Dad.
