Death Poem by Teens

Poem About Losing Dad To Cancer

My Dad died of multiple cancers through his body when I was 14 years old. There was exactly one month between the day of his diagnosis and the day of his death. He was a single parent and aspiring musician who loved his three children more than anything. I am 16 now and would still do anything to have him back. I love you, Daddy.

My Mum left, she was mean
but you stayed behind
you cooked, you cleaned

you were always there
never fail
when I needed you
you were on my tail

you were my rock
you were my wall
when you were there
I could never fall

the day you got sick
I remember it well
I didn't believe
my life became hell

many days you sat you cried
I believed that in your mind
you had already died

the family was shattered
everyone cared
life without you-
nobody dared

then the cancer took charge
and it didn't take long
although it seemed ages
in four weeks you were gone

the whole town was in mourning
that I was told
but it seemed to me to be the world

Daddy, your death was tragic
I know this is true
your music
your magic
taken out of the blue

I'll miss most your presence
the fact you were there
the love that you gave
the way that you cared

Oh Daddy, my Daddy
We'd been through so much
but God wanted you now,
away from our touch
