Uncle Death Poem

Poem In Memory Of My Hero

My Uncle raised me from the age of 1. His death was unexpected and very hard to accept. 18 months later I still miss him terribly. He was my Uncle, my father and my hero.

My Uncle

© Nikkii Fahy
I came into this life
You held me in your arms
You kept me safe
So no one could harm

You taught me values
Lessons in life I would learn
You taught me to respect
I gave you love in return

You have always been in my life
Through thick and thin
And now my lonely journey
Without you will begin

For you were my hero
Forever and a day
You will always remain that hero
Till I meet you again some day

I will embrace you in my arms
And hold on tight
I will stand by your side
And you will never leave my sight

I miss you so much
The pain does not ease
I pray you are happy
And finally at peace

  • To my youngest uncle Mike (38),
    I miss you and still cannot get over your sudden death, I know you're at peace and have joined our loved ones who have passed; especially Diane (29) or Peter (17). Your 3 beautiful kids we will keep loving them the way you did. I still can hear your voice in my head and the way you said your goodbye before hanging up. I got so many signs that someone would pass away in our family and I never dreamed that it would be you. I thank God that he gave me this wonderful uncle to guide me when growing up and to also love my kids the way he loved me. You had the kindest heart and hope to see that in your kids and mine. See you later my Uncle, your niece (Ishko).
