    I still remember the day I told you to go
    at the time I knew it was for the best you
    needed to be at complete rest you deserved
    to breathe easily so I told you it was okay to
    leave me I told you good-bye I sat there &
    didn’t even cry I knew I had to try to be strong
    for everyone else so I looked straight ahead
    & said it’s okay if you leave me but ever since
    that day I’ve missed you desperately when
    you left you took a huge part of me & now I
    can’t seem to set you free I know it’s a fact
    & I truly believe you’re always with me guiding
    me watching over me still I would give
    anything just to see you again for however
    brief the visit might be I would give anything
    to touch you again to feel you hugging me or
    kissing my check I would give anything to hear
    you again calling me Sunshyne laughing
    about old times & telling me you love me
    I would give ANYTHING I miss you & I can’t
    explain this pain to anyone really they would
    have to have been where I am to honestly
    feel me I miss you & sometimes I don’t think
    I can make it another day another step cause
    my heart is literally breaking I miss you & I
    know you wouldn’t want me to continue to
    grieve but I’m a Daddy’s Girl & you were my
    everything I miss you but in order to honor
    your spirit that lives within me I’ll let you go
    unselfishly all the while treasuring the years
    we had holding them close to me until we’re
    together again.

    I like the flow of this here SIS!

    This is a pain i know well when having to let someone u love go and be free without giving a second thought of how it might make you feel. Sacrificing your feelings so that they can be happy and free. Hurts real bad, but life goes on...
    Very Nice Flow!
    I Dig!!:)

    Sister, this peace is so emotion-packed!!!!!
    I can feel the love you have for your dad
    and the pain you felt when he had to leave.
    You expressed yourself in this beautifully! :)

    Sometimes in certain situations
    words can sound so ackward,
    so we stumble over what to say.

    This piece released a very deep
    emotional side of GA.
    Continue to think about the wonderful memories
    of your father they will eventually sooth your pain.

    My dad and I were very close ~ when he died, a large piece of my heart died with him. This is very moving and I'm feeling you, sista GA. You've said some things I needed to deal with. Finally.

    :heart:
