My beloved’s father died. It still hurts, to be honest. He was hilarious. He was smart. Was he an ass? At times, yes. But he was human.
I’m not used to his absence. I’ve tried to intellectualize it…but it sucks.
Yes he had cancer, but he beat it twice.
So he won’t be here when I become his daughter in law. Well, technically I was…because that’s how he saw it.
I wanted to learn more from him, but life isn’t fair.
The irony? We were able to say goodbye…but it wasn’t enough.
We love you poppy.
