Letter for Dad #DailyDiary

Thursday, August 18, 2016



I could say;
He is not a hero, known by the world.
But a hero you are, to his little son.

He is Big, who knew all things.
And better than Santa, with the gifts he'd bring.

I knew his voice, before he could speak.
And loved it when he would sing me and advise me.

He taught me life's lessons, of right from wrong.
And instilled in me values, that I might be strong.

And so through the months, like a hero he stood.
Working to give, all that you could.

His presence is important, and I loved to see his smile.
For no one in the world could emulate his style.

And,
so dear Dad, my best memory to recall.
Is the gift of your presence, the greatest gift of all.

Umm Dad,
There are a couple of things I think you missed
So write this down, make a little list
Here are a couple of things that I want you to remember
That sometimes you seem to forget
There are also a couple of things that I need to fix

Hey Dad,
Don't forget to tell me you love me.
Don't be too embarrassed to grab me and hug me.
If it makes you feel better, go ahead and slug me.

Hey Dad,
No matter how much you bug me,
Just know that I enjoy your company,
Laughing when you make fun of me.

Hey Dad,
Remind me to give you a hug goodnight.
I never want you to feel like I'm leaving you out to dry.
Don't be afraid to grab my hand just because it doesn't feel right.
I never wanna regret, not doing it later on in life.

Hey Dad,
Please hang on to me, I'm growing up way too fast.
Too much of the future, not enough of the present day or past

Hey Dad,
Please don't let me go.
I want these years to last.
I just wish I could let you know,
How much I don't want you to leave,
How much I appreciate your company.

Hey Dad,
I'm not gonna' tell you to walk a little slower, I'll just catch up.
I'm not gonna' tell you that you're leading my life,
I'm just gonna tell you to show your love.

Hey Dad,
I didn't want you to see the tears in my eyes,
When I was standing there waving goodbye.
I didn't want you to get on that plane,
I didn't want you to take that flight.

Hey Dad,
Before that flight, you said on the verge of tears.
'BB, don't worry, I'll come back for sure'
and in the back of my mind,
I recalled all of the fun over the memories.

I promise I tried to hold back the tears,
but I couldn't, I cried, it hurt so bad.
I could've died, it made me so mad to know that I couldn't stop you from leaving.

Hey Dad,
Ya I know it, we all have an angle.
I have mine too, my angle always watching me,

I called him Dad.

I can't write any more.
The tears are falling and the ink is fading.
I haven't really been myself lately.

Hey Dad,
I just couldn't hold back…
Come back soon.

Love,
Your son.

Ps: We've been shared letters more than the tears we had.
Everyone knows, remembering is easy, we do it every single second.
But, missing is the heartache that never goes away.
