I Hope You Know

I am so so sorry I never got to see you again. 

When we were finally told you were seriously ill, it left us so little time to fly back to see you, I told you we were coming. I had to borrow money to renew passport and pay for fares,I finally had everything in place - we were due to fly out on 7th June .

I was going to read Tarka the Otter with you, I'll never forget you reading that to me when I was kid. I was going to cook my Moussaka, one of your favourites for you, I was going to sit with you, hug you, hold your hand and tell you over and over how much I loved you. I cancelled the flights when I was told you had died, you were the only reason we were coming.

It is breaking my heart that I never even got to see you again - I just hope you know how much I wanted to, tried to, and above all I hope you know how very much I love you.

With all my love to you, an amazing person, a wonderful Dad and my  guide, mentor, rock and inspiration.  I love you a gazillion, million trillions <3
