father's day story

when i was young, about 8 years old, i used to rebel against my dad. how i had wished that time that he would vanished from us and that he would not interrupt me from what i want to do. why? because that time i used to see him and looked at him as someone who is always opposite against my will. young as i am, i really don't understand why he is doing those things. he is also not explaining why he have to do what he did that time. now i realized what are those things. now i realized that he is indeed right and i am wrong. i experienced those myself. firsthand experience to be exact. now i know that he just wanted to protect me against harm and danger. now i know that he does not want me to be hurt or to be left alone. now i know that he is training me into someone who i should be, a man of integrity. now i know that he disciplined me that time when i was young because he loves me so much. now i know a lot of things.. but one thing also i did know right now is that, i know those things WITHOUT my FATHER anymore. when i was 9, he died in a gunshot. how i longed to see and feel my father right now. how i longed to hear of his guide and to paddle me if i am wrong. how i longed of him.. so to you dear readers, cherish the moment that you have your fathers. you never know when is the time of his departure, and one day you'll realized that you are longing of him already......

Because i always work in other places in the country,i have no much time to get along with my father ,so i often miss him very much.
