Loss of Father Poem

This poem is about my father who died when I was 8. I'm now 16 years old. I started having seizures, which caused memory loss. He died when I was scared of losing memories of him, so tonight I broke down and wrote this to get out my feelings. It's sad but beautiful....enjoy.

I'm Standing On The Edge Of Silence


Published by Family Friend Poems June 2017 with permission of the Author.

I'm standing at the edge of silence,
Waiting for you to come back.
The love I carry in my heart for you
Is something I will never lack.
I'm standing at the edge of silence,
Holding onto memories that I hope will never fade.
Thinking back on your accomplishments
And things that you once made,
I'm standing at the edge of silence,
Trying to find my way to you.
I'm lost, but soon I'll follow through.
One day I'll walk up heaven's stairwell and see you again,
But until then,
I'll stay on Planet Earth and make you proud.
Until I'm pulled up onto that big white cloud,
I'm standing on the edge of silence,
Feeling your presence with me.
I love you so much, and one day you will see
That I'm standing on the edge of silence until God wants me.
