      Thank you Nams, he had been sick for awhile but even then it was quite a shock when it happened. I think no matter how old we get we will always be daddy's girls.

    Mother and father are only one.
    Nothing can replace their absence.
    It's just about time that how much we learn from them while they are with us.
    Like, whatever I own today is because of my father teachings. He is a successful business man and he taught me all those virtues too.

    Plus, these days I am learning cooking from my mother.
    So nothing can replace them.

    Brenda, You used very simple words and made this poem very deep, meaningful, just as you always do.

      Thank you L. It is so very true. Our parents teach you so much. As kids we don't realize all that they know. As we get older we see just how wise they really are. I see my daughters do things now with their kids that I did with them. It really makes me smile.

    I think your friend will adore this piece, it's sad but also an appreciation of a dad who loved his kid very much.

    Brenda,
    This must have been a hard one for you to write considering your own loss, so for that, you have my upmost respect.

    Take care and all the best,
    Ben

    Brenda, this is a piece that makes me emotional for two reasons...
    1/ mine and my fathers bond was never even close to this and
    2/ your friend having such a bond as this with her own father which has been cut 'short' so to speak, I guess it's bittersweet but more sweet than anything and you always write in this simplistic, and profound way that moves me to any emotions I should be feeling when I read your pieces.

    Much love
    Em x

      Much love to you Em. It's never easy when you don't have that type of relationship with a parent and others do. Or you never really had the chance to. I'm mostly thankful she's had these years to be with her dad and I greatly appreciate your kind and wonderful words,to me. Hugs my friend-

    although this was written for your dear friend, i feel the love and pain that must mirror inner feelings. this is written so well that it choked me as I read the palpable emotion. well done.
