Today marks the second year of life without you existing mine.
Today I reminisce on the very moment I received the news that you passed away after two long years of pain and struggle.
Today I cry silently to myself wishing so terribly that you were here to see your family slowly progress in life. Today I cry because I know you didn't want to leave us this soon, and yet you are no longer here on this earth. Today is a day for you. I miss you, and I will never forget you for being in my life.
I will always and forever love you.

For those who don't know, this poem is about my dad. I've been dreading this day to come ever since February because I knew that this day would be filled with depression and sadness no matter what which I never look forward to dealing with. Majority of the time I keep those kind of emotions bottled in but something like this is more than I can handle. Way more. However, I talked to my mom about it in the car yesterday and thought of celebrating my father's life and the time he spent with us as a huge part of our family. That idea came so suddenly to me, but it was something that we really needed for this day and it thankfully came in the nick of time :)
It's been two years as of today since he died from cancer and it still feels like yesterday. It's so weird how life is. I haven't really seen him in my dreams as much as I did last year and the year before. Not sure why but I'm hoping it's becacuse he's too busy with his responsibilities with the man upstairs. Haha! In any case, I do hope in the many years to come we celebrate this day and have postive energy around us by doing so. That being his spirit.
Continue to Rest In Peace, Daddy.
