An apology.


by sandy montgomery

Dear Dad,

I'm sorry we are not as close as we could be. I know I was sassy and headstrong in my youth. I realize I always took mom's side when you fought. It must have made you feel lonely and ganged up on in those pre divorce fights.

I have always regretted you not walking me down the aisle at my wedding. Sorry I was married at the courthouse and not in the church.

I love you dad, though it may not show like it should. When I see how you have changed it scares me. I remember thinking you were like Superman when I was a little girl. You seemed so strong and handsome. Now your hair is grey. I notice you are thinner and a little stooped.

Time is not what it once was for either of us. Daddy I just want to say I'm sorry we drifted apart. I'm sorry for the lifetime of hurt feelings and misunderstandings between us.

I wish we could be close but maybe there is too much pain for that. Please know I love you, I miss you, and that I will forever and always be your girl.


I'm Sorry contest entry

My dad and I have never been close. Not enough in common and I'm not his favorite person. But I love him.
