This is heartbreakin, it isn't often I read a poem and it brings tears and it's even rarer for me to admit it but I know this feeling all to well, I lost my Dad a long time ago and myself being a father of a seven year old going on seventeen there's alot I wish he was here for.
Thank you for sharing that part of you with me, I hope you are ok as well, I think no matter how long they are gone, we still miss then and wish they were here for things, I know they are spiritually but its not always the same... and I am doing ok, thank you.
Hope you're smiling today dear! You always wrap me up in your writing! Miss reading your words. I took a couple minutes away from my desk to clear my head and thought let me go check out an old part of me. I am sorry to have to comment on this. This is beautiful. I remember writing being the only thing I wanted to do bc it's the only way to kind of express how you feel. Love ya woman!!! May there be peace and light in your life!!! Xoxo
