Keeping My Daddy With Me

default ©

Published: February 2015

My heart changed when you left.
Time froze and I wanted to hide.
It was a moment that will stay with me forever...
the day my Daddy died.
I am remembering good times
and forgetting all of the bad...
holding onto special times and the laughter we had.
I am living for today,
because it is what I must do...
but that does not stop me from thinking about you.
I will love you always and forever.
One day, Heaven will bring us together.
So watch over us Daddy, as I know you do,
and I will keep remembering how much I love you.

I lost my dad last March in 2016. It will be a year in 2 days. I too had a strained relationship with my dad and had just re-connected before Thanksgiving in 2015, just 2 1/2 months before he died. He was admitted to the hospital for breathing trouble on February 1st and a few days later he was taken down to ICU. He was still awake and alert at that time and gave a thumbs up as to say he was ready to go. If I had known that was going to be the last time I would speak to him, I would've said so much more. The month of February he was heavily sedated every day up until his death, so I never got a chance to tell him everything I wanted him to know. He died of ARDS and Renal failure at age 65. I had just turned 40, and it is still so painful as the day he went to Heaven. I miss my dad so much it hurts.

I lost my dad nine months ago. See, my dad left when I was a young girl and we found each other again. By then I wasn't a little girl anymore. I was an adult, and I had a little boy. I cherish those moments and days I got to see my dad again 'cause after he left from visiting me I never got to see him again. I talked with him every day. I had six years with him after that first day we reunited. My dad lived in a different state than me. I got pregnant with a little girl last year, 2016. I still remember calling my dad, telling him I was having a little girl. He was so proud, but soon after I had her my dad got sick, and in May of 2016 he passed away. He never got to meet my little princess. It breaks my heart that my son and daughter will never get to see him, but he lives in our hearts every day. I miss you, Dad, more than anything. Keep watching over me and my kids. I love you. Till I see you again, I hope you’re proud of me.

My father passed away in November last year. I am still finding it hard to cope with the loss of my best friend. I will never forget him always in my heart and forever it will stay.
