When the light goes out forever

No matter how hard I try to put this poetically, it just never turns out.
Itís because I just have too much to sayó
Iím so sorry for all the stuff left unsaid
Iím so proud that you were my dad
You were my hero man, and Iím sorry I never said it to you
Goddamnit, I canít believe youíre gone
Oh it hurts me bad that you died before you could see me do much with my life
Such a good man, everyone said so at your funeral
I wish I could have one more big squeeze
One more lunch together
One more ďI love you.Ē
I wish I called you more, I wish we never foughtóitís such a useless thing
I thought youíd be around for us to make it all up
I certainly imagined you would be
But now I have to deal with the fact you never will be
I love you for always.

So much left to do, no time now to do it. I was very touched by the raw emotion in these words.
I lost my dad when I was 20, nothing can can erase the sadness, but after so many years, it is as if tied up with a ribbon and lying in a box, which I can open when I need to cherish his memory once again, and be soothed, or shed a tear and tell him my troubles.
