Four months ago, I lost my dad.
They say time heals everything, but let me tell you one thing.Time doesn't ever heal the pain of losing a parent. Because you can never possibly learn to live without them.The only thing you're left with is to live with that emptiness,give away a fake smile and pretend you're a strong daughter. Where inside, every moment you just ask yourself why this happened to you. Its different with daughters you know.Maybe because we're brought up this way. Growing up beside a father, it's like a fairy tale on its own.
We admire fathers like kids admire superheroes.There is nothing in this world that a father cannot solve.That one man on earth who loves you selflessly,even when you're fat or ugly or aggressive or dumb. He used to call me his daughter even when I failed to give my best in things. I always used to say to him "you're a lucky guy, because only lucky parents get daughters". Even at 20, I felt like a fragile baby around him, always holding his hands in public.
So when you lose your father, you lose the biggest part of your life. But life doesn't end there for you.You still have to walk a long way without that umbrella on your head. Do things that he always wanted you to do(even if you have to fake it till you make it) for you should know he's always watching for you because superheroes don't die. It's been four months and I constantly feel his presence around me and I know its not going to last a long time.
But until it does, I will make the most of it.
