All of us who have a loved one in heaven know how hard it is to cope and how much harder it gets around their birthdays and on the actual date.

A dad is someone who holds the whole family together. When he leaves, a lot of emptiness and sadness is left behind.

On his birthday, we want to do something special. We want to celebrate his life and honor his death.

We want to show our love and nostalgia. Words usually fail us when we have so much to say in our hearts.

Happy birthday dad in heaven quotes are there to help us do just that.

A Letter To My Dad In Heaven: Happy Birthday, I Love You & Always Will

woman writing a letter

It’s been 10 months, 7 days and 12 hours since I told you: “ I love you , Dad”. 10 months, 7 days and 12 hours since you left me for good and since you went to heaven.

You know, I miss you so much dad that it feels like it’s been decades since you’ve been gone.

On the other hand, there are times when I feel your presence all around me and when it seems like it was yesterday that you were here.

I guess I still can’t believe that it has already been almost a year since I last saw you and since I last talked to you.

I know that this is something you wouldn’t like to hear, but the truth is that I’ve spent every moment of these 10 months dying from the inside.

sad woman putting hand on rainy window

That I’ve spent every morning waking up in tears and every night crying myself to sleep. That I’ve spent 10 months feeling incomplete because a part of me is missing.

I know you would want me to be stronger. That you would like me to be the tough girl you tried to raise.

But the truth is I can’t accept that you are gone forever. I can’t accept the fact that I should continue my life without you in it. I don’t know how to be strong without you.

The truth is that I feel like I am about to break down completely every second of every day.

sad woman crying

But today is special. Today, I miss you more than usual. Today, the pain seems unbearable.

Today, I feel like my heart will literally break into a million pieces. Today is your birthday.

For as long as I can remember, this was one of the happiest dates in the year for me. It was the day when the whole family would get together to celebrate the day you were born.

The day when we celebrated the fact that we had someone like you in our lives. The day we celebrated you.

And here I am, trying to continue this tradition. Here I am, trying to survive your first birthday without you.

Here I am giving my best to celebrate your birthday the way you would want me to.

family celebrating birthday

Here I am, wishing my dad in heaven a happy birthday and hoping he hears me.

Here I am trying to accept the fact that for the first time ever, I can’t tell you how much I love you in person; trying to live with the fact that I can’t wish you a happy birthday the way I would like to.

Instead, the only thing I can do is to seal all of my birthday wishes for you inside of me and whisper them to heaven.

This year, on this special day , I can only hope that all of my birthday wishes somehow find a way to you.

I can only hope that you’ve finally found your peace and that you know how thankful I am to you . That you know how much I love you , wherever you are.

sad woman looking at sea

This is the first year in which I am not waiting for midnight to strike, so I can wake you up and bring you your favorite cake.

The first year in which you won’t act surprised, even though I was doing the same thing I did every year.

The first year in which I didn’t spend weeks choosing your birthday present, thinking of what to get you. This year, I can only light a candle on your gravestone.

Here I am alone, doing my best to forget about all the sadness and trying to focus on the beautiful memories.

Trying to remember everything you gave to me and everything you taught me.

I am trying to fill myself with joy and happiness because I know that you are looking at me from above and because I know you would want me to be happy, even without you by my side.

I am doing my best not to cry today. I try not to be heartbroken that I’ve lost you because I know I should be thankful for having had you at all.

Instead of being sad, I am doing my best to be happy because I’ve had a real dad ’s love, support and protection.

I am doing my best to be happy because I had the best dad in the world, and that is something nobody can ever take away from me.

But to be honest—I am not doing a very good job at being happy. As much as I try, I can’t seem to chase away this sadness which is eating me alive.

sad woman sitting by the sea

There is nobody around me who can fill the void you left behind. No person exists who could ever replace you in my life.

Everyone tells me that time heals all wounds. They keep telling me that with the years, I will learn how to live without you.

That I will find a way to cherish the memory of you without feeling this anger and sadness that consumes me completely.

But that isn’t happening. And the truth is that I feel worse and worse with every day which passes without you.

The truth is that I miss you more and more with every minute. That I am dying to hear your voice just one more time.

That I am dying for you to hold me and tell me that things will be alright.

daughter and dad in hug

When I come to think of it, I think this is the thing I miss the most. I miss someone who could wipe away my tears and put a smile back on my face.

Someone who could hold me when I want to fall, and someone who will always have my back. No matter how old I get, I will always miss being daddy’s little girl .

Call me crazy, but deep down, I know you are looking at me from heaven, and that is the only thing in which I find comfort.

I know that you are my guardian angel and that you are still keeping me safe, the same way you were doing while you were alive.

You are not physically present in my life, but that doesn’t mean that you are gone from my heart. That doesn’t mean I don’t feel your presence all around me, and it certainly doesn’t mean I love you any less.

Happy birthday Dad. I love you today, and I will love you for as long as I breathe.
