Father Death Poem

This poem was written for my Father who passed away in 2007. Although my father & I had our differences growing up, we became very close in the later years. He passed away on my 50th Birthday in 2007. When he was in the hospital I spent time with him and it was a very special time. Now people around me tell me that I remind them of my father and that is a great honor.

Miss You Dad

Dear Dad;

Another year has passed that you have been gone
Oh how I wish that I could turn back time;
But God knew that it was time for you to go home
It was on God's agenda and not mine.

When I was young and growing up
You and I would disagree on things now and then;
But long gone are the days that I can call you on the phone
And say to you, "Dad do you remember when?"

As I now have children and grandchildren of my own,
I know now know how proud you must have been;
As the generations continue to come and go
Your love for all of us is instilled within.

It was with mixed emotion that I had to let you go
But I knew that you didn't want to stay;
You were headed home to Jesus to live forever
And that when you drew you last breath you were on your way.

There is not one day that goes by
That I don't miss you DAD,
But I know that you are with Jesus
And nothing more makes me more glad.

Miss you DAD

My name is Tamara, I lost my beloved dad on the 23/8/2014. Although he had been ill for a long time, he didn't die because of his illness, he died because he was neglected by the nurses in the hospital. I miss him every second of the day, it's hard to accept he is no longer with us. How do you forgive the people that caused his death:( . My heart physically hurts, my life has come to a stand still.....

Hi my name is Shelly, My dad was a very pious noble man. I lost my dad 2008 and it's never been the same since. I think of him all the time. It's so hard to know he isn't there when I visit my mum. It's so difficult to sleep at times all I am thinking of is him being here. I wish I was there when he died but I wasn't. I am daddy's baby girl and no one told me he died until I got to the hospital I still didn't know even when I saw him lying on the hospital bed with a pipe in his nose I just thought he was asleep. I wasn't that young I was 20 so I don't understand how I couldn't understand he was no more :( I'm still grieving it hurts a lot

Hey my name is Judy Albert Parobe. My dads name is Albert Parobe. I was my daddy's girl. He taught me all I know. He raised me to be the girl I am today. My dad died 4 months after my 21st birthday. He was an alcoholic. I begged him all the time to stop. He was the best. He had the biggest heart. The day he died I went into the hospital to see him, he had always been so strong I knew he could beat it. I didn't say bye or tell him I loved him. I just went on with my day. When the call came in I couldn't believe those words. Everyday I have to live with the thoughts of what I should have said. My dad was my world he meant everything to me. Without him here I do not feel free. I wonder Who is going to watch the graduation. I miss him more and more everyday nothing here will ever be the same. I pray to God to give him back all the time. But he won't. RIP Daddy! ALBERT PAROBE

I lost my dad in 2003, I'm 48 now and it still hurts not seeing him or hearing his voice. How I wish he was still alive to see his granddaughter (my first child) whom he never met. I love talking about him telling my daughter how good of a man he was to our family and how much he loved all his grandkids. I talk about him as if he is still alive. That's what keeps me going. I LOVE YOU DAD AND MISS YOU SO MUCH. I know you will be waiting for me at the golden gate. <3

On May 30th 2010, an angel from my life left his earthly body behind and ascended up to Heaven, his name was Peter, he was my dad. He died with no warning and it was very sudden. One day he was there and healthy and the next day he was gone. I had the greatest father a son could ask for, he gave me everything and equipped me with what was needed to get through life in order to look after my kids and wife, most of all, he called me his son. Although it's been over 3 yrs., I still think of him every day and my heart still pains over this loss, I think it has something to do with the fact that I wish I had more time for him in the last 10 yrs. of his life, I regret not making the time and cherishing him more, letting him know just how awesome he was and how proud I am of him, now it's too late, he's gone.

On September 13 2012 my dad called me after I got out of school telling me he was doing great and he was coming to get me on the 14th for the weekend. I could barley hear him but he told me he loved me I told him I loved him too and see him tomorrow and bye, at 9 pm his girlfriend called me telling me he was doing great he ate a big dinner and went to sleep and they were coming to get me tomorrow on September 14th 2012. At 1:00 am I got that phone call telling me my dad passed away. I lost it. I became really close to him in the last two months and he wasn't just my dad he was my best friend I wanted to die to and be with him, I still today take it pretty hard. It's been almost a year.

My name is Wendy. My fathers' name is Lawrence; he passed away on Fathers' Day 2013. I miss him so much, and I too wish for him to return everyday! Unfortunately, I know he never will. I was Daddy's little girl and I love him so much. He loved me unconditionally and I could tell him everything. He always said "I'm ready to go to Heaven and hang out with Jesus and the gang". I know that my Daddy is happy in Heaven with Jesus and his mom, dad and brother. Still I wish he were here with me. Daddy, I miss you and love you forever. P.S. I'm glad I told you how much when you were alive. See you in Heaven!

Hi, my name is Edelmira and my Father's name was Raul Puebla. I didn't get the chance of growing up with my Father as he passed a day before I turned 4. Someone took his life away from us. My Mother and my 2 Sisters were left without our rock. I don't remember much of him, except that horrible night. I remember it like it was yesterday. I often dream of him and wish that I could rip him out of my dreams, give him a big hug, and tell him how much I miss him, and how much we needed him growing up. I love hearing the wonderful stories my family tells about him, about the great man that he was. I am now 35 and have 4 children of my own. I wish that I could introduce my Father to them; he would have been a great Grandfather, I just know it. Daddy you will forever be in our hearts. I miss you Father!

Hi, my name is Lisa. My dad's name is Steven. He passed away 16th Dec 2006. Still feels like yesterday. He died of cancer, he was the strongest man I have ever known. The best friend I will never have again and the only man who loved me unconditionally. He raised me to be the woman I am today. He left me too soon, I still have so many questions that he always had answers to. I'm getting married next year and in my dreams he always walks me down the aisle but in reality he is not there with me. I wish he met the man I will spend the rest of my life with, I know he will be proud of me. I want him to see his grandchildren and the joy on his eyes. May his soul rest in peace. I miss him and he is always in my heart. I love you dad.

Hi, my name is Trina and I lost my DAD on August 20, 2005. He was a very hard working man and I was Daddy's little girl. He never showed it in public but everyone knew by his words he said. He lost his life from heart disease. He had a metal heart valve and triple bypass in January of 2001. He passed 2 days before my mom's birthday and 9 days before their 41st wedding anniversary. All our stories are not the same but we have all the memories of our fathers, and it was just 5 years but I have not fully grieved because I was the rock to hold everyone in the family together. But there is not a second in my life I DO NOT MISS HIM AND WISH HE WAS STILL HERE!! DADDY I LOVE AND MISS YOU SO BUT I KNOW YOU HAVE YOUR ARMS AROUND ME ALWAYS<3<3<3
