It hurt to write this but I've carried these emotions for almost a year. Getting them out has lifted a weight from my heart. :)

Hi. I'm not sure if you'll hear this. But, I had to try.
Breathe. Steady. 
It's been awhile. Almost a year this December.
A tear rolls over my cheek.
I've missed you.
It drips off of my chin.
I look at the book you left me almost everyday now. At first it hurt. I won't lie.
My voice breaks, my strong front crumbling with it.
I still haven't completely accepted His choice. He took you away from us.
Tears come steady now. I'm broken, crumpled on the floor like a paper ball.
But, I know now that it was for the best. 
I know you're not in pain anymore.
I know the place you are is more beautiful than I can even imagine. 
I force a smile through my sobs.
I know I'll see you again.
I love you, Papa. I hope you can hear me. 
I hope I'm making you proud.
Inhale.
Exhale.
Click.
