Spiritual Poem about Death

Poem Explaining Death To A Child Whose Daddy Died

My friend died today after a battle with colon and liver cancer, leaving behind an 18 month old son and a pregnant wife. He was a family man and I was thinking about what he would have said to their son when he was leaving this world and going to Heaven. I kept picturing him telling their son that Daddy needed to go to Heaven to help Jesus with something because he was always willing to help others! We love and will miss you Mike! Cayden, Beth and baby will always have you watching over them.

Daddy's Helping Jesus

Published by Family Friend Poems March 2012 with permission of the Author.

Daddy just wants you to know
He loves you with all his heart.

Jesus asked for Daddy's help
So Daddy for now must part.

Know that Daddy's always with you
Each and every day.

Know that Daddy will always love you
In each and every way.

Mommy might be sad right now
And cry over this.

Please do Daddy a favor,
Give her a hug and kiss.

Daddy's body might not be here
But know you're never alone.

For Daddy's with you always and forever,
Even though Daddy's at Jesus's home.

I lost my Daddy June 6, 2012. He was 46 and we're not sure what caused his death. We're waiting for the autopsy reports to come back. It's been extremely hard to cope with the loss of him. My family has been struggling to make it without him, we're poor and can't get help from anyone. I know how hard it is for people to lose their parents. I send out all of my thoughts and prayers to anyone who has lost someone close to them that they love so much. Rest In Paradise Daddy I love and miss you forever and always <3
Love always Savannah Marie S. your daughter <3

I had loss my dad from cancer on January 12, 2011 and it still hurt, but know that he is not perfect and he did wrong in the pass. I had to reach down in my heart to forgive my dad. I know that he wasn't the best dad but he was still my dad no matter what. Sometimes when I needed my dad he was there and sometimes he wasn't there. All of the other things in the past; I had let that go and moved on. Me and my dad did had some good times together and some bad times together, but overall that I really truly miss my dad. I know that my dad is in peace and he is not suffering anymore. I hope my dad can hear me when I say that I love you with all of my heart no matter what you did in the past.
Love your daughter
