19 Father’s Days Have Got Behind Me...

This is Father's Day 19 since my father passed away in his 67th year. This has Pink Floyd's 'Time' song is stuck in my head for the second time in a month...
"And then one day you find
Ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run
You missed the starting gun"

Except I've two decades behind me since my Dad passed, and three and a half decades since I became a father. And the question still nags me, 'am I a good father?' I used to think I was but lately, the last several years in fact, I don't think so... I'm not even sure I ever was now. All I know is I love my daughters very much, but that's the easy part — they make it easy. I wonder if I was always destined to have this much guilt in my life?
