Citizen TV host Willis Raburu on Thursday penned an emotional letter to his departed daughter and opened up on the pain he is going through.

Willis and his wife Marya Raburu lost their baby during childbirth and it has been a tough couple of weeks.

The 10 over 10 host said that he often wakes up and imagines how different life would be with his daughter around.

“My beautiful daughter, some days are easy some days are so hard. Today I woke up trying to imagine what it would be like to watch you sleep, ( that’s the only image I have of you) what it be like you hold warm fingers, what a sleepless night would feel like.

“What it would be like to go to work tired coz you kept me up at night, who you would look like now? what color of your skin? if you would drink as much milk as I did when I was your age,” he wrote.

Adding: “My daughter, you are an angel now, or so they tell me and when I look up to the sky sometimes I cry, sometimes I sometimes I laugh, I want you to make so much noise in heaven, or in the multi-verse you are in, I want you to have all the people who are with you there say “Yeap that’s Willis’ child” I miss you so much, it’s funny that I have a picture of you but even before I look at it, you face is engrained in my heart, etched in my soul, tattooed in my very essence.

“My daughter, my sweet lovely beautiful daughter, I’m sorry that you have to see daddy weak and in grief and not the pillar of strength that you and your mother need, but my daughter, daddy loves you since He listens to you talk to Him and tell Him, daddy doesn’t understand but daddy needs help. Rest In Palaces, RIP because you are royalty.#QueenAdana.

Earlier this year, Willis announced that he would take a break from TV to deal with the grief since he had to be there for his wife during this difficult period.
