I love you, Dad

My Mom and Dad

My Dad was born on the living room floor of a slum apartment.
He started smoking when he was 5.
He quit school when he was 13.
He joined the Marine Corps when he was 17.

He was the toughest man I’ve ever known.
He was the greatest man I’ve ever known.
He was my best friend, even though he didn’t know it.

Every day I try to be more like him.
And every day I fail.

I try to hide my emotions,
but, even if I wanted to,
I can’t adequately express my pain.

I feel so, so alone.
I love you so much, Dad.
