Father Poem

About a special relationship between a father and a daughter.

I Miss You Dad!

© Catherine Ulanday
When I was a little girl,
I can still remember our happy moments we shared together.
People said that because I'm the only girl in the family, aside from my mom
That I'm a spoiled brat, but I guess I'm not.

You're my mentor, you taught me a lot of things in life, moral values,
Respect for elders, things that is useful to our everyday life.
As a Dad, you showed me of the how, the why, and the where,
No matter what has come about; you were always there.

That was spring of 2002 when I heard the news.
The doctor said you're in pain, and there's nothing they could do.
The result of your biopsy was you have cancer of the liver,
After I heard that, my world starts to shiver.

You talked to me and said you are dying,
My heart breaks when I heard you crying.
3 weeks later, you've left me.
That was so painful and the hardest thing to accept, for a grieving daughter that I am.

Years may come and go, but your memory will never be erased.
I once knew a man, who gave love at his best,
And no one can ever take your place. I miss you so much DAD!
