Kurt Cobain’s Daughter Pens Tribute To Dad

On the 30th anniversary of Kurt Cobain‘s death, the iconic rocker’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain paid a moving tribute to her father.

Expressing her omnipresent grief, the visual artist and model took to Instagram with a lengthy emotional post, addressing the loss and her wish to have known the Nirvana frontman, who died Cobain, who died on 5 April 1994, when she was just a year old.

“I wish I could’ve known my Dad.” “I wish I knew the cadence of his voice, how he liked his coffee or the way it felt to be tucked in after a bedtime story. I always wondered if he would’ve caught tadpoles with me during the muggy Washington summers, or if he smelled of Camel Lights and strawberry Nesquik (his favorites, I’ve been told),” wrote Frances.

Revealing small but poignant family memories under the social media handle thespacewitch, his daughter added:

“His mom Wendy would often press my hands to her cheeks and say, with a lulling sadness, “you have his hands”. She would breathe them in as if it were her only chance to hold him just a little bit closer, frozen in time. I hope she’s holding his hands wherever they are.”

Writing that her dad wrote his daughter a letter before she was born, she wrote:

“The last line of it reads, “wherever you go or wherever I go, I will always be with you.” He kept this promise because he is present in so many ways. Whether it’s by hearing a song or through the hands we share, in those moments I get to spend a little time with my dad and he feels transcendent.”

Frances Bean Cobain is the only child of Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain and Hole frontwoman Courtney Love.
