I Miss You Dad

by mgirl

Happy Father’s Day, Dad, I miss you. Would you like a bouquet of flowers placed neatly on a grave-site with your name written below ‘Our Beloved Dad?' Or maybe a balloon set free to soar over the churning blue sea, with a wish scribbled on a scrap of paper and stuffed inside, hoping to find you someday? Should I buy a card just in case you decide to come back home from your faraway place, when you left us after Mom died three years ago? Do you think of me Dad, your only daughter? Happy Father’s Day, I will always love you Dad.

Wrote with the saddness and yearning that only a daughter missing her father can have. Keep writing, Gillian
