My love for you
Became watered down
Just like your vodka
After the ice had melted
Had you just stuck with
Your milk and coke concoction
I would have had the chance
To say "Good-bye"
There would have been
No need just yet
Because you very well
Might still be here
Among us now. JD

In their eyes
We were ungrateful
And no good
But they judged us
Based on the word
Of an alcoholic
That we knew
Better than they
But that didn't stop them
Everything he had
Leaving us only
To face the dreary existence
Of a man we let go
Long before his death
And our pithy inheritance
Of the unworthy. JD

If you ever feel indispensable or envy others or hate someone who wronged you, just picture a cemetery/crematorium in your head and tell yourself " Here lie all people who thought the world cannot run without them".
The new Melody (Angela)
My respect for you just grows by the day. Through the battles I know you endured, those battles I know nothing about and those I have just came to know, you persevered and is still persevering. Your strength is remarkable, an eye opener. Your determination is something you never failed to nurture.
I am forever grateful for all that you do. I am truly grateful to be blessed with you in my life.
You are the moon
And it’s lonely but yet
There are some
Love you the more
When they are down
But will move once
They are up on their feet
Others will be there
In all lives trajectories
They will help you soar
And will be there on your landing
They are your stars
You need them both
One -to have a feel
Of the magic of life
And the other-who knows
Life’s magic lives within you
You are not naive
Here rests the man I love the most. I took this picture when I last visited the cemetery, the most peaceful place on earth.
I'm sorry for hurting you when you were alive. I'm sorry for disliking the name you gave me. I'm sorry for asking you " Were I born because you loved mom or because you just had sex with her?" I'm sorry for asking you to explain what was going on between you and mom. I'm sorry for not understanding what you were going through. I was naive. You are the most humble, simple and caring human I ever know of. Your deeds followed your words. You were a little stubborn and ill tempered but that's alright. I've gone upto you, they say. If we are both reborn in the...
When you are a dad, blessings come in pairs.
Thanks to the thousands of people on the lettrs network for helping me live a dream as a man, and father, of letters.
Yours in thanks, and hope,
The last month
For the life of me
I cannot decide
Which is the truth
Or how I should feel
Maybe it is time
To let myself
Off of the hook
That will set
Both my mind
And his spirit free.

If I could look at you.
Just one last time.
Just one last goodbye.
If I could say the words.
That no one said to you.
I would run to you ,
And say it out loud.
I would cry and hold you without a doubt.
I never got to say goodbye,
And now you're gone for the rest of my life.
All the flaws you used to think you had,
Were not flaws at all.
You were perfect to me in everyway.
You're my big dream that I live with today.
Forever in my heart you'll always stay.
Forever in my soul I'll never let you go.
I hope for you happiness.
I hope for you to rest in piece.
Know that no matter where God takes you, you'll always be my heart and soul and all that I know.
May you rest in piece in the heav...
I know you had a bad day
I know today was Father’s Day and your dad wasn’t there for you, and I know it’s been though this past weeks, But baby please kiss me and hug me and don’t get annoyed because of how much I need you.
Sometimes a grown up girl will need you but won’t say anything because we don’t want to seem to needy or annoying, so I write this here so I’ll express myself and let you be.
Quise pasar por tu muro,
por tu invox
para desearte un excelente
y bendecido día.
Decirte que la palabra PADRE encierra el mayor de los tesoros.
Entendí que estarías tan ocupado y que tal vez podría equivocar el mensaje, así es que decidí felicitar públicamente a todos los hombres que tienen la bendición de ser Padres.
FELIZ DÍA DEL PADRE.
You've taught me the courage of the moon and the strength of the sun. No matter what you say without you I'd never have been half of the man that I am today.
You loved me when I hated myself. You laughed with me and sometimes at me, and you've kept on loving me when I was gone. Undeniably you're my biggest fan and that's fine because you're my hero.
I would need to create a whole new language to honor you and to express my gratitude.
You are my first best friend, my favorite enemy and the most valuable teacher. Father, thank you. One million times Thank You.
Mi viejo tu quien estás tan presente en mi, desde que me levanto y me veo al espejo, hasta cuando me acuesto a dormir, y recuerdo cada consejo.
Estuviste ahí desde el primer día que abrí los ojos. Me enseñaste a sujetar los cordones de los zapatos, a amar el fútbol, me regañaste fuerte muchas veces pero otras las que son más, reímos a carcajadas.
La decisión más importante y certera que tomaste, fue casarte con mi abuelita. Sin duda alguna, elegiste a la mejor, nos dieron el mejor ejemplo de amar para toda la vida y el amor sincero que se tuvieron es el mejor legado que me pudiste dejar.
Abuelo, no hay día en el que no me hagas falta, ni agradezca a Dios por haberme dado al mejor.
Para ese padre que da todo por sus hijos.
Para ese que los hace reír.
Para ese que los protege de todo peligro.
Para ese que los ayuda a estudiar.
Para ese que les lee todas las noches.
Para ese que les da consejos.
Para ese que los abraza y les dice cuanto los ama.
Para ese que aprende todos los días como ser mejor.
Para todos esos padres que entendieron a la perfección lo que es amar, criar, respetar y cuidar.
Y para esos que ya no están físicamente,pero siguen cuidando lo que más amaron desde otro plano.
¡Feliz día! Y gracias por existir.
my father taught me colours with balloons
not by books.
like many fathers chained to
the society I was brought up in,
he had the choice to sculpt me into his definition of a perfect daughter.
but he trusted me to shape myself into
the person I wanted to be,
despite what the world would think of him.
for me, he was willing to risk it.
one of the most comforting thing
in the world to me is that my father
has more faith in me than I ever had in myself,
from the moment I learned to crawl.
and it will be this way forever.
I'am blessed to still have my father around,
As little girl you always want to Marry your dad,
My dad was always there where i needed him.
Hè thought me so many great things in life about life.
My babygirl when she was born my father was there with me
Helpt me true sicaxan
was with me the moment i became a mother and my dad for the first time a grandad.
Hè helpt me raise my little girl seeing hem enjoying being a grandad.
Spend time with my baby
Is priceless, hè showed and teach here do many great things in life about life
I'am grateful for my dad in so many ways.
I love him for who hè is what hè thought me and my babygirl.
Happy fathersday i love you
Dear is the Dad
to his child,
who reads them
who listens to
his child speak.
Dear is the Dad
who hugs his child,
tells her he loves her,
and holds her up oh
so high, that she
believes she can
truly fly. Dear is
the Dad who supports
his child no matter what,
who loves his child unconditionally and
without cost. Dear is
the Dad who inspires and teaches their child by brilliance of example
and their inner light within.
It’s to these Fathers I honour.
If you as a Father, find yourself falling short,
I tell you this; it’s never ever too late to recreate yourself.
Your child will love you for it!
