I Wish I Could Talk To Him Again

My father died when i was 13. i was very young and was a bit of a recluse. i just wish i'd told him that i loved him, even though in my culture its not a norm. i admire him now that i am a father myself. i miss his advice and all he did for us. he was such a strong man who taught us well. he made sure that we would be proper men within society.

i wish i could just ask his advice and what he thinks of the men i have become. i wish i could talk to him again once. i wish i could thank him for all he did.

It is an honour you give to him to recognize that he has given you the foundation of some life skills and an understanding of how to behave. It doesn't help with the pain of the loss of a father, which is a deep pain, but it helps to know that his life had great meaning to you ... if there is a heaven and our fathers live there then it is my sincerest hope that we will meet again. May love be your compass in life and I hope your children come to know and love you as you love your father. Best wishes,

i think we should do that. we should tell those we love how we feel. the time is not ours. we dont know when death comes to steal them or us. so i'll not make the same mistake twice. thanks

There is not a day that goes by that I do not wish for my father. We take for granted that he will alway's be there for us. I lost my dad to cancer 14 year's ago. He made me who I am today. We make the mistake in not following our heart's. Men dont act that way. I was lucky enough to throw that out the window ten year's before I lost him. I made sure to hug my father no matter where we were and tell him I loved him. I would give anything to be able to do it just one more time. Teach your children well, tell them ten time's a day that you love them and that you are proud of them. Teach them that it is important to say and show their love to mom and dad. We never know what life hold's for us in the next hour. DO NOT allow your children to have to live with what you carry inside of you over your dad one day. Teach them well, your father would be proud.
