I chuckled a little before I started typing this because two years back there are chances that this letter would have been addressed to a Papa. I really did get deep into all of that, didn’t I? Well, many of us have been there and we could not see the scam that it was until we stepped out. So much money lost there, I am getting upset so let me move forward.
You have always had my back from day one when I felt like I was at the end of the road you reminded me that I have had it worse and I have come out of it regardless the circumstances. You reminded me of who I am and what I am capable of when all I wanted was to bash myself and call myself useless. The sound of your voice rings in my head, some days I smile and on some, I cry.
It is true what they say about words, they stick and even now that you are gone that is all I will hold onto. I am grateful for all you have taught me, for the strength you left me with and the knowledge. I am grateful for the debates we had that opened up my mind, they allowed me to look at so many things differently. Thank you for helping me understand my feelings and articulating them.
I write this letter with such a heavy heart, you were a very big part of my life and I never imagined you would be gone from me but I guess that is life, unpredictable. There is nothing I can do to bring you back and I must continue with my journey of healing whilst latching onto the hope you planted in me.
I will forever love you and you will forever be in my heart.
