    See You Later

    In 2019, I lost my father to illness. My world was turned upside down; and I lost myself for years. He would always say to not use “bye” to end a conversation. To instead say “See you later”. We always did that, but the final time I ever spoke to him, I was busy and the last thing I said to him was “Ok”. I will never get to say another thing to him, but I’ve finally been able to forgive myself
