I Miss You, Daddy!
A Decade. Ten Years.
November 28, 2007.
The day when the world as I knew it changed forever.
The day I lost one of the most important people in my life. The person I never imagined I could lose.
A Decade, 10 years, I just can’t process that number! It is a long time and within it so much has happened.
And yet I still feel the pain as though it was yesterday. It comes in flashes and waves and I feel the brokenness in my heart, that piece of me that left with him, that piece that can never be replaced, it belongs only to him.
My daddy was (and still is) my world. I know he struggled with the ill-fated cards he was dealt – the knowledge that he would eventually have to leave his family – through no choice of his own.
But, he never truly left.
I see him in the faces of my family.
I feel him in times of joy.
I hear his encouraging voice when I want to give up.
In the end he is everywhere, guiding us, watching over us.
There is nothing I wouldn’t give to have my father here with me. But, like him, I didn’t have a say in matter and so I move forward with the strength and determination he taught me.
Daddy, you will always be my world, my protector, my strength, my hero and my heart. I love you! Always and forever! May you continue to rest in peace and may you fill us with your love and devotion just as you did on earth.
Mi manchi…ma proprio tanto! TVB!
