Today would make it 7 years since I closed your eyes for the last time and said a prayer to wish you well on your way. I told you not to worry, you could go in peace because everything would be alright; we would all be alright.
It was honestly THE single hardest thing I've ever had to do, but I cherish the fact I was able to do that for you.
I didn't always understand you then. I didn't know what you were trying to do. I understand now though; I understand that you were preparing me to be a man.
I'm growing everyday, still making mistakes, still struggling with this journey called life, but if anything, my experiences have helped me understand you better. Who you were, why you lived the way you did, why you made the decisions you made for yourself and for us.
Now, I'm grateful. I'm grateful for the lessons. I'm grateful for the understanding. I'm grateful for the man you were, because if you weren't, I wouldn't be the man that I am.
So today, 7 years later, I repeat my words to you once again: "Sleep well dad, Rest. Go on in peace. Everything is going to be alright. Every one is going to be just fine!" And allow me to add the most important words I didnt say then, "Thank you, for everything!" Love you.
