Just Another Christmas

I didn’t know
I missed you that much…

‘Till I realized…

Light’s out.

Sky’s dark.

Another Christmas without you, Dad.

      1. I lost my father 14 years ago … I think of him every day, sometimes the sadness is still overwhelming and I find myself crying. Then I remind myself that is because I love him so much and because he loves me so much that the pain will never leave me. I truly feel your sadness. We can’t every touch our father’s again but it’s better you see – they are tucked snug in our hearts our whole lives through and we are who we are because they loved us and nurtured us. Go softly 🙏

      2. Very well said Osyth…i am his apple of the eye…and my other siblings are fine with that…for some reasons even when i was already an adult he’d still call me his princess…there are foods which he cooks that i never tried eating again when he died …he is just admirable…its been 7 years…

      3. It won’t be easy but I promise it will make you feel connected. How is that one can have a soul-sister so far away. I have honestly always felt that you are in some way the little sister I never had. Perhaps our fathers are together waiting some place and urging the connection.
