I am writing this letter to you dad, knowing that you will never read it
So what’s the use of writing this letter
I am writing this letter with a painful heart
Because I know that you’re no more
You were a righteous, quite and caring man
May your soul continue to rest in peace
You set a good example for your children
I know your spirit is not dead, it’s only body that have died
We shall meet again in a new bodies and spirit
There will be no pains and no sorrows
And I shall not miss you again
You were a faithful man
If it was possible I would come there and pay you a visit
But the living cannot visit the dead
And the dead cannot visit the living
What is painful is you will never come back
I am the one who will follow your path after completing my chapter in this painful world
When the dead I rise I will be the first one to give you hug
And there will be no fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers and cousins, we will be one and equal
According to the bible a man lives forever, the spirit of a man never dies
My pain will go away, the pain I have will fades away
When I remember you I don’t know if I should cry or laugh
Through you God made me, and I am what I am because of you
As long as I live I will never forget you
I thank God for giving such wonderful dad as you who give me life and opportunities
May your soul rest in peace dad
