I'm 21 Dad

by Brittany Ottmo   Feb 16, 2013


I know it's been many years
Since you have been gone
But in 18 days time
I wish you were here by dawn.

One of the biggest days
Is racing up on me
And I want you here
To give me some company.

Officially becoming an adult
Seems like a lot of weight to bare
I don't know if I can do this
Without you standing there.

I know I have my mom
My friends, and my sweetheart too
But if you could join in
It would be a wish come true.

The dinner, the laughter
And the good times to come
Maybe I can start making things right
And start my path for who I'll become.

My dear sweet dad
You have taught me so well
Looking through the holes in heaven
You would look but never did tell.

So on this special event
That is right on its way
I will think of you in silence
Then continue on my way.

You will forever be a part of me
A special place in my heart
But I will do as you ask
And make 21 a fresh start.

**This goes out to my dad, I miss him even more right now.
