Loss of Father Poem

Poem About The Anniversary Of Dad's Death

I wrote this poem for my Dad. He passed away from prostate cancer, and it has been one whole year since he has been gone, and it still hurts like if it were yesterday. I love and miss him so much. This poem just shows some of my feelings that I am going through right now.

Always In My Heart

You have been gone one whole year and nothing is the same.
It seems like it was just yesterday that the angels called your name.
Every morning when I wake up, I think it was just a nightmare,
But when I go to look for you, I realize you're not here.
My memories of you will never fade, and you are always on my mind.
I wish that there was such a way for the years to just rewind.
I wish I could see you and hear your voice once more.
I wish we could talk and laugh like we did before.
It makes me happy to think of all the good times that we had,
But it breaks my heart to know that's all I have left of you, Dad.
I look at pictures, smell your cologne, and listen to your favorite song.
I know that you were sick, but it just seems so wrong.
As I sit here writing this I realize nothing in life is fair,
And there has not been one day that's gone by that I haven't shed a tear.
As my life moves forward without you, I will imagine you always by my side,
And you will always be in my heart...because in there you're still alive.
