Loss of Father Poem

Experiencing Life Without Dad Poem

I lost my dad on June 27, 2004. I was in Florida at the time with my grandparents. We came home the next day, his birthday, to be told that I lost my father of a sudden heart attack. I just wanna thank him for everything he helped me accomplish even though he wasn't here. I made varsity cheerleading freshman year. I am a straight A student, and I'm planning on going to Yale. He taught me to take nothing for granted. I love you, Dad!

Ten Short Years


Published by Family Friend Poems March 2016 with permission of the Author.

Only ten short years I got to spend
With you as my daddy
And as a friend.
You were always there for me.
You would never yell, just breathe.

I lost you too early,
For you will never see
The things I will accomplish
Just from the little things you taught me.

You never got to question
My first date,
Never got to see me get my
Diploma and graduate.

To make all my dreams come true,
I have to do that without you.
I know you will always be by my side,
Give me a little push
And be my guide.

Weak or strong,
I have to move on.
That's what you would want me to do.
To laugh and smile
At the memories that will last a while.

I can only wait till the day comes
When I will be reunited
With my daddy and my friend.
When that day happens, I will be forever happy
Once again.
