I miss you dad

by Pooja

My dad died in front of me in a car accident a Sunday night at 7pm. I was only eight at that time. It was a 20th December 1998. Right now I'm 22 and I'm still crying a lot because he is not here. Yesterday was his birthday and I was thinking a lot about him like how he would be right now of he was still alive, how would our relationship, would he love me a lot and take care of me etc. I just miss my dad a lot. Many people don't realize how lucky they are to have one. When I was younger, I thought I would see him again but now I know it is never going to happen and it crushes my heart to know that. Oh dad, why are you gone?

I miss you dad
by: Doreen U.K.

Pooja I am sorry for your loss of your dad when you were 8 yrs. old. You are now 22yrs. and feeling the large gap in your life without your father. It will feel like a deep wound. An emptiness in your life. You will probably hear stories from friends about their relationship with their father and wished that you could have had those memories.
If you had no male role models in your life when you were growing up you will feel cheated from life.
Some people don't miss what they didn't have and go on to cope the best way they can. You will have to find time perhaps with the skilled help of a counsellor to explore your feelings and why you are still grieving after 14yrs. None of us knows how long grief will last for us especially from a long relationship. Parents nurture their children and this is usually a life long relationship which is why from a strong bond it hurts so much to lose them. I lost my husband after 44yrs. marriage 6 months ago and I hurt so much from losing him I don't know how long my grief will last. I hope that you get the support you need to move forward and that life will be kind to you. You are young and have your full life ahead of you (God Willing). Try and find relatives who can give you all the feedback on your father so you can fill in the gaps.
