Sad and beautiful at the same time 😦 When I jsut started reading it, I thought it will be about innocent play between a father and a child, but you broke me.
Oh, I’m sorry to sadden you. Honestly though, it was meant as a comfort – my dad will always be with me. Whilst i hate that he is gone physically, he’s still in my heart. That’s how we live on, don’t you think?
I’m sure it makes you feel better to feel your Dad nearby.
It does. It’s taken a long time to get to this equilibrium, and some days are harder than others.
Freya, having read before on how you miss your dad.. this brought tears to my eyes.. truly beautiful and from the heart..
Thank you, Bjorn. Strangely enough, writing this was rather comforting.
this was beautiful. i’m glad you were able to express your emotions through your writing.
Thank you, KZ.
You captured a beautiful mood here of eternal love, Freya. It was sad and wonderful at the same time.
Thank you, Karen. That’s just how it feels to me right now.
beautiful and people live on in our hearts.
They do indeed, Sarah.
Your sentimentality was not at all trite, darling, and I loved it. Thank you for this story.
Thank you, Helena. I’m glad it didn’t come off as trite! That would have been very disappointing…
Ow, Freya, this is heartfelt!
You reminded me of my Dad too !
I hope that was a good memory, Horus.
yup – good… always good ! 🙂
Beautiful sentiment Freya and am glad you feel that way-best way to keep someone close and celebrate their memories 🙂
It certainly is.
Lovely sentiment and nicely done story.
Thank you, Rochelle.
Very nice. A lovely look at grief.
Thank you, Judah.
Beautifully and sincerely captured – it is testament to the lives of those we lose that we can still feel their presence and take comfort after their passing.
Yes, I think you’re right.
Lovely Freya and I do understand you missing your dad, its a hard gig some days dealing with such loss. Take care.
It is indeed, but I’m so glad i have so many good memories.
Hold them close Freya they sustain us in those moments when we miss them the most.
Yes, they definitely do.
i remember reading your haibun not too long ago about your father. this is a beautiful moment, Freya.
Thank you, Sun.
Freya, good story. I miss my dad too – I was 31 when he died and I was mad at the world. Good writing. Nan
Yes, I can identify with being mad at the world. I’m sorry you lost your dad so young.
I lost my dad two years ago. Sometimes he appears in my dreams, most often as a bit player. I always like that and think its a way to see him and know he is always with me.
Yes, it’s good to feel that connection. It’s interesting that he is a bit player in your dreams…
This well-written story was a great tribute to your father. Anyone who has lost a beloved father will understand. He’ll always be there with you in memory and in your heart.
Thank you, Patricia. I like to think he’d be proud.
Touchingly poignant and very well written.
Thank you, Sarah Ann.
