Father Death Poem

My father passed on Dec 15, 05. My 15 year old daughter wrote this poem for me. I just thought I share it with you.

Daddy's Little Girl

© Olga
He looks at her as she giggles.
she stares at him thinking that's my Daddy.
She gets older hardly seeing him, waiting,
no sign of him.
He comes home drunk smelling of liquor.
She doesn't care,
you're my Daddy she says and I love you.
Her mother's tired but stays with him for her children.
Daddy's little girl gets older,
she takes care of her Daddy.
He gets sick .
He is put in the hospital slowly dying,
she cries Daddy don't leave me.
Her heart is breaking slowing.
She hoping he gets better,
hoping the doctors are wrong.
Doctors give up hope but does not still hoping.
It gets harder for Daddy to breath,
three more breaths a Smile from daddy she misses it' he smiles again,
silence then he's gone.
She doesn't want to let go.
Its time to say good bye, good bye Daddy I love you.

  • This happened to my dad when I was 11. That was one and a half years ago. The only difference I never knew my dad he left when I was about 4 or 5. I never knew him so I don't know if I love him. I cant say good bye like you did though. I know how you feel.

  • This touched my heart. I was daddy's little girl and watched him die. He took his last breathe to say I love you.
