Why does hurt to let go??

I was not kept in the loop about my father's battle with lung cancer. The last time I saw him was on his birthday. He was so thin. We went outside due to the nice weather and I just looked at him. I knew right then and there he had given up on life and the fight for it. I couldn't ask him to fight anymore.4 long years fighting it was more then enough. That day he made me promise that I would not give up on my dream to help people. Said I could make a difference. He told me he loved me. Christmas time came and I couldn't bear to see him in his state. Little did I know, I would regret it. IT was his last Christmas. I miss him so much. I didn't even say goodbye. I hope he knows that I LOVE HIM and that I AM SORRY. It really hurts so bad.

Re: Why does hurt to let go??

we don't have to let go. there is no rule that say we have to stop crying nor stop feeling sad. it took me 19 years 2 months and 24 days of my life to love my child. so i will take that same amount of time and cry over him. the same amount of time to laugh at his jokes and smile at my thoughts of him. you take all the time you need and never let go just live live live live! peace to your heart and soul.
