Love Letter #6

This is the final letter in a series of six
‘Letters to Daddy’ dedicated on this
Father’s Day of 2022 to all those who
struggle with an earthly father

Here we are again, I remember all the

goodbyes before, you would hug me so

tight as I left your arms, I really don’t

know why I cried so hard, it was like

I would not see you again.

I’ve heard there is a special bond

between fathers and daughters.

and writing these letters have

really helped, I may not have

used the choicest of words, the

punctuation may not be correct,

but they have been written

from my heart.

And so I bequeath to you all my

wanderings and confusions,

the incorrect father image I

have imagined.

I had to let go of putting you

in God’s place.

Your image has slowly been

replaced, fading in the distance

and erased.

And when I fear I have been

left alone, I try to remember

it is not true, not believing

these lies, God is always here.
I truly forgive you for all you did
I know you didn’t mean it, you
were just too sick.

This is not the end of this

road we have traveled. I know

one day I will see you again,

for that is the plan. You will

appear in the resurrection.

My last will and testament

to those I love, is that my

children will be spared this

legacy I received in the past,

that they will share it

with others.

And so dear Daddy, I am

letting you go and saying

goodbye, but just for a time.

Thank you for listening to your

daughter’s last words, I look

forward to seeing you in the
