I miss you DAD

by William
(Tucson Arizona USA )

My Dad died when I was 2 and 1/2 years old. I am now 62 years of age. Time did not heal the mental wounds of not having him here to help guide me through my younger years. I only have a few old photos to remember him by. I have no memory of his touch, the way his voice sounded. I just hope he is proud of how much I have accomplished. I could have done more if he was here to guide me. God I miss him. There were times when I was younger I had thoughts of suicide.

I miss you DAD
by: Doreen U.K.

William I am so very sorry for your loss of your dad some 59yrs. ago. It is so very sad that you have such a VOID in your life from not having input from your dad in your life as you were growing up right into adult life.
~Sons especially need the nurturing of a father in their life. It is said that fathers teach their sons how to become men. Did you have other male role models in your life to help mentor you?
This is so very important. I am sure you must have turned out well. You must have had the special love of a mother to help bring you up. To feel suicidal as you were growing up must have been very difficult for you. I hope you don't feel the same way into your serior years. If you do then please see a counsellor who will help support you in the journey to expel these feelings all locked up allowing you the time and space to live a more happier life free from the past which has limited your life. It is also said that when children don't have an earthly father they have a heavenly father who will take them up and be a father to the fatherless, and a father to the orphan. If you don't know your heavenly father you can find him in Prayer and in the Bible. Acquaint yourself with Him and find the VOID in your life filled. You have every right to wish you had an earthly father since it took him to create you. Your father will also have lost out in bringing you up and lost the pleasure of nurturing you and getting to know you into manhood. He also was robbed of this pleasure and delight in you as a son. Looking at things from your father's perspective even though he is not here to feel, will allow you the healing from this sadness and loss.
