    You left when when I was 12

    and disappeared for ten years. I missed you and to this day I don't know why you did not stay in touch. It really messed me and my brother up. Did you not love us enough? Thank you for making it up to me. Your relationship with your son will forever be a work in progress though...

    Dear Daddy

    Dear Daddy, Why did you hit my mummy? Why, on the night of my birth, did you go drinking when she told you I was on my way? Why did you lie? Why did you hate me? Why did you leave me? Why did you wait until I turned one? Why didn't you leave before? Why? Mr. Harper, I do not hate...

    feel to have you as my father. You're my friend,my guide and my strength. I know I gave you hard time during my teenage years. I was very immature and rebellious but now I understand the value of patience that you tried to teach me back then. You have forgiven my biggest...

    I used to be close with my Dad growing up,

    he had a way of including me in trips and the decision making that went along with it. Now I feel our relationship is running on fumes because I haven't been there to call or write him. I plan to write him more often.

    I Truly Hate You

    I don't use the word hate lightly, but I truly hate you. I honestly cannot wait for the day when all the children you didn't abandon realise what kind of person you are, and they leave you to die an old lonely man. Or, if and when you need some kind of organ transplant from a...

    Dear Dad,

    There are so many things that I want to say to you, but I don't know where to begin. I guess I'll start by saying that I wish we could have spent more time together. I know that I shut you out of my life early on and I think you know why. I don't blame you, I blame the disease...

    I don't know why- I don't know

    why you stop talking to me sometimes. I feel like I'm never good enough to please you and you always wants more. It kills me to be around when you are in this unsettled mood. I just want to run away.

    Dear Dad, I haven’t been straight with you and neither have you. I haven’t told you much of how I feel or the way I see the things that happened for fear of hurting you, but holding it in is hurting me even more and I have to put myself first at the moment because I am in a...

    and you would never say this to me because our relationship is awkward. But I love you Dad and you are and always will be the number one man in my life. "Whatever's in your heart, will be in mine" ❤️

    Your Dead To Me Now

    I've tried time and time again to have some sort of relationship with you, and time and time again you prove that you don't give a flying **** about me. Growing up, I dealt with the fact that you weren't around and I learned that you never truly cared for me. I will never forget...

    I don't like how I look at my dad. I could sensor what I say here but I think if I really let it hang out and put all the anger down maybe I can see the ignorance. I don't respect my dad. I don't like my dad. When I hang out with him I don't like the things he says or the way...

    Well, Dad, it has been 6 months since you passed on. Mom is doing well and all the financial stuff you set up clicked in right on time. Of course, there were a few glitches, but they were easily sorted out. The family is closer now because you are gone. One of us 'kids' visits...

    To my dad: At age 16

    when you kicked me out did you feel anything? Am I that awful? I'm sorry. Do you just talk to me now because of the guilt? Why don't you try to give me what I need? When you look at me do you feel regret? Do you know what I go through on a daily basis? I love you dad.
