“One side of the story is not the whole story. In fact, it’s rarely even half of the story.”

Brokedown Palace (Grateful Dead)

Fare you well my honey
Fare you well my only true one
All the birds that were singing
Have flown except you alone

Going to leave this broke-down palace
On my hands and my knees I will roll, roll, roll
Make myself a bed by the waterside
In my time, in my time, I will roll, roll, roll

In a bed, in a bed
By the waterside I will lay my head
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul

River gonna take me
Sing me sweet and sleepy
Sing me sweet and sleepy
All the way back back home
It’s a far gone lullaby
Sung many years ago
Mama, mama, many worlds I’ve come
Since I first left home

Going home, going home
By the waterside I will rest my bones
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul

Going to plant a weeping willow
On the banks green edge it will grow, grow, grow
Sing a lullaby beside the water
Lovers come and go, the river roll, roll, roll

Fare you well, fare you well
I love you more than words can tell
Listen to the river sing sweet songs
To rock my soul

Hi Lili,

I thought you might like to see these pics from some of the different places we’ve been to.

Love always,

Daddy

Dear Lili,

Happy 21st birthday, sweetheart. As always, I wish I could be there to spend it with you, but that’s not possible now. Someday, I hope, you’ll understand why. Just know that my choice was always to have been a part of your life. If you can just believe that, somehow, someway, that would be the answer to my prayers.

Twenty-one years ago today you came into my life, and I’ll always remember that as the happiest day of my life. And although I can’t give you any gifts today in person, I’ll do the best I can and give you the gift of memories. Here are a bunch of pics from when you born and from shortly after returning from the hospital. I hope you enjoy them.

So until I see you again, you have to know:

You are ALWAYS in my heart.

Love you more than words can say,

Daddy ❤ ❤ ❤

 

Kid

My only kid.

 

 

Miss you every day of my life, Lili. 

You are always in my heart.

Love,

Daddy ❤


Dear Lili,

Well, it’s been eight years now since I started this blog, hoping that someday you will find it and know how much I care about you, and how much I wanted to be a part of your life. If only I could hear from you the words “Happy Father’s Day” again… if only. In the meantime, all I can do is keep putting these “messages in bottles” so that you may one day understand who your Dad really is.

You are always in my heart ❤️

Love always,

Your Dad 💘👨‍👦💘

P.S. Here’s a picture of me from my 61st birthday.
