Family Death Poem

Missing My Parents

I wrote this poem on the anniversary of losing my mum. I was only 15 when I lost my mum to cancer, then tragically lost my dad 15 months later from a heart attack. I'm 43 years old now, and despite the number of years that have passed, I still miss them every day and the life that I would have had with them.

I Miss


Published by Family Friend Poems November 2020 with permission of the Author.

I miss your face; I miss your smile.
I wish I could see you once in a while.
I miss your laugh; I miss your love.
I hope you are watching with pride from above.
I miss so much not having you here,
Guiding me in life and having you near.
I miss you, Mum; I miss you, Dad,
Forever in my heart with the memories we had.
