I will die a happy father,having met you two years a go when you got employed at my company. I didn’t need anyone to tell me you’re my long lost daughter, but your face reflected your mum,my first wife and my friend.
Your mother died while giving birth to you,it was sad watching her take her last breath,I thought you would also die,you were weak,ever crying, ever sick,death was always at your neighborhood. I couldn’t look after you,I was so poor,I had nothing to call mine except you and your mother,when she died,I was left with nothing because your aunts( your mother’s sisters) would not let me hold you claiming I was a useless good for nothing b*t**.They were bitter accusing me of killing their sister. AIDS killed your mother,its also taking me day by day but the doctors protected you,your negative, its a killer disease, hope your teachers said this to you, its a long story about the disease,your grandma will tell you about it.
The woman you call mum is your aunt,I thank her for raising you on my behalf,I got married again but they all left me when they learnt I had a limited life on earth,you are my only family and blood,I only adapted them.
The reason I met with you,is because It was my last day to be alive,I could feel the weakness in my heart.I was so happy when I kissed you janny,I just breathed my life and love to you as a sign of good bye from your dad,I was not there for you when you were growing, but am glad you were there for me when am leaving. When you called me names,I felt bitter,wishing that you could know am your dad before i die,wishing you gave me time to express my deep soulful story to you but I was glad listening to your fighting spirit just like your mum always did,I was taking my last medication, to keep me an hour longer,its how I managed to write this letter.
You have been pampered with lies and truths,hope this letter brings light to your life.You’re now an orphan, no mum no dad,but you’re an intelligent girl, be a good mum to your kids,I would wish to be your handsome boss a bit longer that night you thought I used you,in the office you pushed me away saying I was married, that ring is what your mum gave me after delivering you safely, John has it,now I give it to you keep the generation alive Janny,All my possessions I have left them under your name,I was born poor and useless,but at least I have died a happy man because you’re my greatest possession,in you I see your mother,the woman whom I loved wholly hearted but death took her before I crowned her a queen. I know you loved me as mr.right,a daddy is always right should be the new meaning to it.
My last wish is,rest my body next to where your mother lies,you grandma will show you,let us stay close so that we can learn to love each other again in the spirit world.
Good bye Janny.
Daddy,you fought all the good fights,you have kept the faith,you have finished the race.May your soul and that of my long departed mother have eternal peace. Ash to ash….dust to dust.I will miss you both.
Its the end of my handsome boss.Am still in tears mourning him,wish he stayed a bit longer so that I can write him letters and love poems.R.I.P mr.and mrs.Timothy.
