This advert hit too close to home for me – the only difference for me was, the ending wasn’t as good as the one on the ad.
My father really did pass away and there was no surprise in the end when I went home last year. I have been having recurring dreams about him since then. In my dream, he was always very happy and we would spend such a great time together. At some point in my dream, I’d realize that I should do this more often and spend more time with my father but then that’s when I will wake up. The reality that I can never do all the things I dreamt about with him will dawn on me – all those times I’ve wasted and all the chances I didn’t take. There is no waking moment that I have never regretted not talking more nor spending more time with my father when he was still alive.
Now, I can only dream about him.
