Father Death Poem

a story in the memory of me father Benjamin D. Deal that died on February 12, 2003 for an overdose on drugs.

What Was Best? (Feathers)

© Sara Deal
Rain drops from the sky,
Like feathers from your wings,
Daddy you always you loved me,
But daddy where could you be?

Are these your feathers falling from the sky,
Or are they the tears of regret that you cry,
You promised to never leave me,
You said we would never be apart.

But daddy your in heaven,
Was I ever in you heart?
You said that you wanted what was best,
That you would do whatever it took.

Daddy your in the ground now,
Mommy says that you can rest,
But daddy I'm alone now,
Is this really what was best?
