These are the words of Maira Elizabeth Nari, the daughter of the Chief Steward of MH370, Andrew Nari. Even after two months of the plane's mysterious disappearance, Maira continues to hope that her father will return to do a lot of things undone back home, such as to see her off on her first day of college, and watch football together with family, among others.
Maira's emotionally gripping messages to her father has touched thousands of hearts with as many as 104K people following her on Twitter, many of whom have showered her with support and words of encouragements.
Andrew was one of the 239 people on-board the Beijing-bound flight MH370 which went missing just one hour into its journey in the wee hours of 8 March. Ever since the plane disappeared, his daughter has tweeted constantly about her father.
The 17-year-old has now become a social media personality, with all her tweets drawing international attention including that of Liverpool Football club and its fans - and least to mention many local and international news organizations.
On Wednesday, Maira tweeted, "Dad, I wish you are here right now. Today is the first day of my college life. But that's okay. I know that you're gonna be pound of me".
Then on Thursday, exactly two months after the disappearance of the ill-fated MH370 plane, she said: "8th May 2014; 2 months already. I wonder as time passes, if you're alive, are you okay, where are you? God knows. We miss you".
Maira's tweets have been giving all family members of passengers aboard the missing Boeing 777, hope and comfort.
