Mourning Poem

A Poem For A Memorial Scrapbook

My niece had her first baby April 10, 2009. He is named Howie after his father who was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident several months before the baby was born. I submitted the poem for a memorial scrapbook the family is making.

My daddy passed away aged 15 years just two days before I was born (13th July 1996) so I never got to see him or get to know him, but I know he'll be proud of me after coming out bi-sexual...

Dear Little Howie

              Your Dad is your angel
              gone to Heaven above.
             His wings now surround you
              with protection and love.

             He watches and smiles
               with fatherly joy
             At the antics and laughter
               of his precious boy.

             And though here on Earth
               you will never know him
             There's a bond between you
               that cannot be broken.

             Then someday, God tells us,
               we'll all be together
             Where love is eternal
               and we'll all live forever.

             So be glad, Little Howie,
               live life without fear.
             Your Dad is your angel
               and he'll always be near.

My daddy passed away aged 15 years just two days before I was born (13th July 1996) so I never got to see him or get to know him, but I know he'll be proud of me after coming out bi-sexual and telling people about me and my beautiful girlfriend. My Grandma gave me a photo album of my daddy for my 16th, they always tell me how proud he'd be of me. I've been to college and completed my level 2 and 3 Childcare so now I am an Level 3 Early Years Practitioner I know he'll be so proud. Even though I never saw him I still cry but I know his my angel and will protect me, I love him so much
Rest in paradise Daddy Adam, forever young.

July 7th my son lost his father and he is almost 3. He did not know his father that well but I wanted to create a scrapbook with pictures and lovely poems and stickers but I can't find any stickers or scrap booking stuff that is for a loved one that has passed. Not a day goes by that I don't think of my sons dad. Not a day goes by that I don't think about the things I could have done to keep him alive.

My story is a lil different but your poem still pertains to what I have to say. My daughter died from HELLP Syndrome 47 days after she had her baby girl. I tell my granddaughter all the time her mommy is an angel & she is always looking down on her & that she's always gonna be proud of her no matter what.
