I remember cold nights with your arms around me. The only sound is you whistling the M.A.S.H theme song. It was safe, a place where no evil could come.  I remember long afternoons in the kitchen, me banging out sounds on pots and pans. You cooking over a hot stove trying not to laugh. I remember... Hush little baby dont say a word.... I remember the darkness and pain. The deafening sound of silence echoed through my heart. 

Your warm hands and bright smile gone. Every year another lie I have told... You were on a trip... You moved away.... You will be back someday.... At every corner I saw you standing there. In every mirror your smile stared back at me. 

Three years and I'm angry. Where are you? I blow out the candles but don't make a wish. What is there to wish for when all hope is lost. The light is off but I dont even care. What is there to be afraid of in the dark when your worst fear is real. I'm angry and I say things I dont mean... I hate you... You never loved me.... I never want to see you again... 

Another year and I'm depressed. The sun no longer shines; all i see is rain. Tears streak and blood runs, I wonder if you see I blame you for my sadness . My mom cries she wonders where I am... I can't tell her because she will never understand. I don't need her, I need him. 

Another two years and the truth comes out.... You are dead... gone... I've stopped waiting, I no longer say I am ok. I have learned to embrace my pain. I still cry and my heart still hurts.. 

This year... I'm ready to say goodbye. I love you daddy forever and ever and always.
