Today is my father's birthday. He would have been 62 years old today. I want to send him this letter, addressed to heaven:)
How are you? I'm sure you're happy watching us from up there, right?:D
It’s hard to believe that its been 11 years since you passed away. I always remember your birthday, September 10th. And guess what, Its today Dad! You would have been 62 years old by now.
Anyway, i've been meaning to write you since my last letter. We have lots to catch up on!
You know, you were the best father anyone could ever have and I feel so so lucky, proud and honored to be your daughter. I believe, God has truly blessed me in allowing you to be a part of my life. A very important one. I were blessed to have you for so many years.
Thank you for the way you shaped the woman that I am today.
Thank you for showing us that life is all about family, no matter how.
Thank you for a great role model you already are.
Thank you for being you:)
Thank you for being you:)
If only i could have one wish. Only one. I only wish that God would have let you stay longer. I miss you a lot dad. I miss the times when we'd sit on the brown couch, i share my worries, my anxieties, my stories, anything! I miss the times when you taught me Bahasa Sunda, subject that i gave up to learn. I miss the times when we were gossiping about celebrities, bands, movies or even music. (Btw, you're right Dad, Rossa now is a very success singer and considered as an Indonesia Diva. I always remember you whenever i heard her songs. And you're right too about The Moffats. Yes, remember about the boyband i used to like? They broke-up.) I miss the times when we were karaoke-ing at home. I miss the times when i helped you cook. I miss the times when you laughed at me because i want to be an announcer (O yeah, i am now Dad!). I miss the times whenever you are with me. I miss you, Dad. I miss you.
I know you would be proud of us now. We have taken good care of Mom. She's owkay and busy shopping as always:p (Dont worry Dad, she's only shopping for your granddaughter now:p)
And i assumed you knew this already, big brother is finally decide to be a radiologist. Yes, a doctor Dad, a real doctor. Kinda surprise since he didnt want to work as a doctor after he was graduated. So, he is now a resident, in your school, in your hospital. Great, huh?:D
He said he wants to be a good doctor, just like you.
Naya, your granddaughter is growing up so fast!You would be so proud of her. She's still breastfed (And i know you'll be so proud of me for this), cant stop moving...and talking:))) I showed your picture sometimes to her just to make sure she knows her grandfather. I promise, i will tell her everything about you later when she's older. I want her to know that her grandfather is a great man. A superhero. My superhero:)
Me myself? Im still on my way (hope not too long) to be a pediatrician, just like you wish. I will be a great pediatrician like you Dad. I will:)
Eventhough i really wish you'd stay longer with us, i guess God had special plans for you in Heaven. I regret not spending more time with you. I wish i could.
I just couldn’t let this day go by without thinking of you and letting you know that I love you and am proud to be your daughter.
Happy Birthday, Dad!
With love,Your little girl.
