Father Poem

My mom and dad divorced when my mom was pregnant with me. I didn't know this until I was about 12 years old, and I didn't really understand. I was 17 years old when I finally started to look for him, he died two months later. Two years have already come and gone, and just the other day I went to were my dad was buried. After I stood there for the longest, I decided I needed to find my grandparents. that same day I looked for them I found them. I have been spending time with them, and it seems like I'm getting to know them pretty well, and also I know some things about my dad. I also got to see a picture of him. I'm so happy now, my world is now complete!!! but I still miss my daddy, even though I never knew him

This is so sad cause it is just like m, I never knew my dad he left my mom when I was still in her belly an it is so depressing not knowing who he is. This is so touchy to me.

A Daddy I Didn't Even Get To Meet

Published: January 2008

I never even knew you
but deep inside I knew
you were out there waiting
for me to find you

days and months past
years flew by too
till that day
I finally found you

the grass was so green
the dirt so rich
there stood your headstone
with your name engraved in it

I couldn't believe
to my surprise
you lay to rest
oh dear, oh my!!

my father so dear
I'm too late
God has taken you
to heaven above

I cried so softly
for my dad I never knew
oh why oh why
please tell me what to do

so many questions not answered
the things wanted to say
please God tell me
why did you take my daddy away
