Letter to her dad


He wrote a letter to her dad many months after they split.  He didn’t want her to know that but she got to know a few weeks later.  That was the closure both of them were looking for. May be.



———————

I hope you are doing well. I want to request something important. Please forgive (her), if you haven’t already, and please love her as unconditionally as you always have. Please give her a warm tight hug, and tell her how much you love her and that you will remain her protector.

(She) and I have not been in talking terms since we broke-up. We felt that it is the best way for us to move forward in our respective lives. But very recently, we chatted for some time. She shared a poem with me that she had written after our break-up. The poem was for you. In that poem, she was asking for forgiveness from you. I am not sure if she ever showed you that poem, but reading it I could sense her pain.

She has always respected you. She has always loved you a lot. She has always felt that you will understand her. But after my relationship ended with her, and as it seemed from the poem, you didn’t understand her and kind of blamed her. She was hurt.

I want to tell you that I take full blame and ownership of things going wrong between her and I. She is not to be blamed for anything. I apologize for all the trouble I caused you and your daughter. Please forgive me.

I wish you the best. May God bestow you with all the happiness in the world. It is my loss that I couldn’t be your son-in-law. I guess God had other plans.

Lastly, please don’t tell her that I wrote to you. She might not appreciate it. It may also lessen the impact that your warm hug can have.
