Dad, Where are you?

I’ve asked myself if he misses me or felt the same sadness that makes me cry for him.

He left me feeling like a ghost aimlessly navigating life and lacking motivation to persevere. The realization that he’ll never come back continues to break my heart.

I feel empty.

I feel angry.
