Loss of Father Poem

In loving memory of Kevin Ray Krause. I wrote this poem after spending almost a year without my daddy. I miss him more and more each day, it seems, but I just continue to look forward to the day when I will once again get to be with him.

Faceless Name


Published by Family Friend Poems June 2008 with permission of the Author.

I cried again today 
Uncontrollable tears fell from my eyes
It seems like all I do is cry
And it's getting harder for me to hide
I hate to cry and I hate my life
My heart feels like it's been stabbed with a knife
Life looks like hell the rest of the way through
Life could be no worse cause I've lost you
In the morning when I wake, tears of pain fall from my face
I have nothing to live for now
I feel worthless, not wanted, left out
I don't belong here, and I never will
If I were with you, life might not be hell
Maybe one day and hopefully soon
I'll see you again and no longer be blue
I miss you so much
Life will never be the same
Without you here I'm just another faceless name

My father, best friend passed away 9 years ago tomorrow, the pain, tears, moments of missing him, has become an every day event, thinking of him, always. My life changed the moment The Lord called his servant home, leaving me a sadness, that sometimes feels I can no longer go on, than I remember, his laughter, one of his jokes, his advice, and I remember his love, his support and wisdom. I remember the day, I was alone with him on his last day on this earth, and tears run down my face, knowing that I will never be the same again, for my best friend, my Daddy went home to be with the Lord, all I could do at that moment was to thank God, for allowing for this man, to have loved me, and call me his beloved daughter.

Daddy, I still feel so alone without your love, so I close my eyes, and remember you in my memories, for your love lives in my heart every day, I will love you, until I can see you again.

Thank you all so much for your stories, they really have touched me! For me it has been six years going on seven in August. That is always the hardest sense he passed two days before my birthday. Things finally better then they were, I still miss him everyday but life continues on.
Thank you everyone for your support, feel free to add me on Facebook. Once again I thank all of you! Shannon Krause

This poem made me cry. This month on the 18th will make 4 years that my dad passed away. There isn't one day that goes by when I don't think about him. My life is like hell now. The 18th is the second to last day of school for me and I will be crying my eyes out. I miss my daddy so much. People tell me to move on in life and that I can't change what happened. I know I can't, but sometimes as I just stand and watch my family, it feels like my life is just a dream. My mom is 39 and I have 3 siblings. I have an older sister and 2 younger brothers. My sister was 14 when our dad passed away, I was 10, and my brothers were 9 and 7. We didn't have much time with my dad. And my sister is now 18 and she is getting married next month. I'm the maid of honor and my brothers are walking her down the aisle. My sister wishes our dad could be here to give her away, but he can't. I'm only 14 right now, but I can't imagine the day when I walk down the aisle and my dad isn't there to give me away.

I can relate to this so much. I lost my dad unexpectedly on March 28, 2009. I remember that night he went to his friends house. He called me and I didn't want to answer because he always called, always wanted to make sure that I was ok. Something made me answer and I remember talking to him not knowing that after I hung up that would be the last I love you I ever told him or heard. He died from a heart attack on a cold garage floor alone. Not how I ever imagined him to go. Till this day I blame myself. If only I had him pick me up maybe that would have given him just one more day. I will forever miss him. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't look at his picture and cry just a little. I wish I could just see him and hear his voice one more time. I never got to say good-bye.

This is how I feel everyday, after almost 2 years without my dad. I don't know if the pain ever stops but I know that by people like you writing these wonderful poems, it does help to ease the pain for us who don't know how to express how we feel. What a painful process there is in losing the first man to love you
