Special Memories

To my Dad,

You were taken from me way to early.  You have missed out on too much, and I am so saddened by all the time that has passed that I haven't gotten to share with you.  All the birthdays, graduations, and exciting days that you missed.  Even though I know that you are somewhere, smiling down on me and sharing these special days with me, I hate that you cannot be here.  I cannot believe its been 9 years since that terrible day that stole you away from me much too early.

I think of you every single day.  I miss your smile, I miss having breakfast with you before work, and I miss calling you when I got home from school.  I miss eating dinner with you, miss saying goodnight to you, and most of all, I miss hearing you say you love me.

Mom told me the other day about the day you came downstairs crying not too long after I was born.  Crying because you realized you officially bonded with me.  And that makes me cry...because our special bond was ripped apart years and years too early.

I miss you more than you'll ever know.  
But I hope you know that you will always, always be a part of my life.
I love you.  Forever.

  1. So sorry for the loss of your dad - What a beautiful tribute you wrote - you had me crying.. I lost my dad three years ago and it saddens me that my girls will not have the chance to know him...
