Poem Tribute to A Father

A tribute to a father whose wisdom will continue to shine forever.

Your Spirit

© Tram-Tiara T. Von Reichenbach
- A Tribute to My Father -

I know that no matter what
You will always be with me.
When life separates us
I'll know it is only your soul
Saying goodbye to your body
But your spirit will be with me always.
When I see a bird chirping on a nearby branch
I will know it is you singing to me.
When a butterfly brushes gently by me so care freely
I will know it is you assuring me you are free from pain.
When the gentle fragrance of a flower catches my attention
I will know it is you reminding me
To appreciate the simple things in life.
When the sun shining through my window awakens me
I will feel the warmth of your love.
When I hear the rain pitter patter against my window sill
I will hear your words of wisdom
And will remember what you taught me so well'
That without rain trees cannot grow
Without rain flowers cannot bloom
Without life's challenges I cannot grow strong.
When I look out to the sea
I will think of your endless love for your family.
When I think of mountains, their majesty and magnificence
I will think of your courage for your country.
No matter where I am
Your spirit will be beside me
For I know that no matter what
You will always be with me.

  • I absolutely LOVE this poem. I lost my Daddy and best friend in November of 2009. I felt as if this poem was written for me. I still struggle daily without his guidance and strength. I Love him like no other. Thank you for making me cry and warming my heart!!

  • I lost my father on Father's Day of 2000 (June 18) when Alzheimer's disease stole the very last piece of him --- his beating heart. I was looking for something to post with his photo as a tribute to him on Father's Day, and I stumbled upon this beautiful poem. Thank you for sharing it with the world; the words touched my heart so deeply.
