He had a balance in his speech. People recalled his nature in good words. His talk was always smooth. His choice of words was remarkable. If he had to disagree, he would choose soft and less hurting words to raise his opinion. I miss my dad because of his slimy yet virtuous spoken nature.

I always looked up to him, owing to his jolly nature. I wished I would adopt an ounce of his jolliness. His smile was infectious. Often, my dejected mood would swing to a happy mood only by looking at his happy face. His laughter was like music to my ears. My house was always a buzz because of his loud laughter. How can I not miss him? as I no longer have him around to make me smile. 

5. I Miss My Dad – His Cricket Commentary:

While watching cricket, I miss my dad. Because his cricket was famous in the whole town, every weekend for about 2 hours, he would invite over his couple of friends. He would cook something for them. Then they all would gather around the lounge and watch cricket on T.V. He was a die-hard fan of cricket. He would comment on every six and four. Amidst the match, he would crack jokes. He was a mood booster.

He used to say to me:

”Lad! understanding the unheard wants and needs of those around you is a duty. The creator does not bless everyone with this quality. Only lucky and chosen ones get it. So, lights up the candle for others if they are facing darkness.”


I miss my dad every nano-second of my life. My whole being is the testimony of how the person he was! I can never stop writing much I miss my dad. 

Whenever I cry, I laugh, I shared with him. I now cry and laugh and want to share with him eagerly. Part of me died every minute upon seeing the good-ness he spread. 

His virtue knew no boundaries. Writing about how much I miss, my dad is like a therapy to me. I find solace and comfort in writing about him. 

Only writing gives me a closer feeling with him. I had my fair share of grief upon losing my dad. But I pray that nobody should get the news of the sudden death of their dad.

 It is heart-breaking. I have accepted his death, and you will too. Only hold on to positivity towards your deceased dad and pray for him every day.
