A Daughter Writes A Letter
I clearly remember that day, once, when you got so angry (it didn’t take much to anger you, no?) you stormed out of the house, threatening to never return. Ultimately you did, but only after a couple of stressful hours.
(Did you come back, Daddy, because you knew what a difficult life it would be for your young, fatherless children?)
And then, a few years ago, you left us again and this time forever. You left in the early hours of dawn, while the whole world slept (all said this was God’s way of calling his beloveds back into his fold), leaving us thirsting for a good-bye, left unsaid.
(Did you go away forever, Daddy, because you thought your grown-up kids didn’t need you anymore? Daddy, do children ever reach an age when they consider their fathers to be redundant?)
Happy Father’s Day, Daddy.
With lots of love,
Your loving daughter.
