I feel as though I owe you an apology. I feel I owe you an apology for all of the times I could have come to visit you but didn’t. And now it’s too late.
I did, and still do, love you a lot, but there is just so much about you I don’t understand. I just wish that I could understand why you were so distant, and didn’t care to have a presence in our lives. I only remember you being at a few important days in my life. You weren’t even at my high school graduation. Why was that? That was the only chance you would have had to see me in a cap and gown, and you missed it.
I feel guilty because I wasn’t there, and I feel hurt because you weren’t either. So I guess we both owe each other an apology. I will always love you and will never forget the memories I have of you. Every so often, I hear you saying ‘Hey kid’ in the back of my mind.
I hope you are well. Smile down on me from time to time, okay?
