Nothing to Give

Hey Dad,

Tonight is one of those nights where I wish I could call you during your work break and get some life advice. I’m overwhelmed. I feel like I’m giving everything I have to everyone and I’m exhausted. I know you’ll tell me that I need to take care of myself, you’re right, but sometimes that’s not always easy when you’re tugged in a million directions.

My birthday is next week and I don’t even care. Remember when I had big parties? None of that matters anymore. I have no desire to celebrate. I’m dreading the day. I know I already miss your call claiming to forget what day it is. Things are so different with you being gone. I feel empty.

Anyway, there’s no more fuel left in this body today. I’ll catch up with you soon. Thank you for always being there, even during the times when I didn’t know I needed you.

143.
