I didnt find out he was my dad until I was 15. Before that he cared for me like he was my dad already. He was the only one that visited me when I was locked up. He use to play the guitar for me while I sang along. He always pushed me to pursue my dreams to be a singer. He never gave up on me even though I didn't deserve his love at times. He loved traveling with me and my brother. He was a hard working man. He was so sweet and kind. He didn't want anybody to know anything was wrong with him. He wasn't selfish. I wish I spent more time with my dad but I didn't want to be around him when he was drinking. I didnt think it would take him away so soon. Im so heartbroken. I shouldve seen him. I shouldve called him and i didnt. Dad I miss you so much my heart hurts. If I could see you and just hear your voice one more time. I wasnt ready to let you go. I love you and I miss you so much.
