Too often we don't appreciate what we have until it is almost gone.

The poet has the same fears as I feel sometimes. If I were he, I would write the same thing what the poet wrote. But not in that impressive way as he did.

I Never Want To Lose You

©

Published: February 2006

I grew up like most kids,
Wishing to be like my dad,
No matter what he did,
Be it good or be it bad.

He worked so very hard,
Many miles he had to roam
To provide for the family,
The ones he left at home.

All he ever wanted
Was to give us the best,
But time at home without him
Really put me to the test.

I never understood
His absence far away
'Till I became a man,
And walked the path his way.

I became a father,
Now I finally see,
You're the sole provider,
And no, it's not easy.

Now I've figured out
What my father went through.
He had to scream and shout,
For the things that I would do.

Everything he tried to teach,
I rebelled with every word.
I thought I knew better,
His words I never heard,

The reason for the wisdom,
We learn throughout the years,
So we can keep our children,
From shedding the same tears,

Dad, I'm very sorry
For all I've put you through.
I've cried so much these last few days,
I'm scared of losing you.

You mean the world to me,
I feel like such a fool.
I'm a lucky man, you see,
To have a Dad like you!

My father passed away in March 2009, I know what this poet is going through and I can put myself in their shoes.
