Loss of Father Poem

Dealing With Dad's Suicide

My name is Kryshelle. I am 15 years old. My dad committed suicide in the summer of 2009. It was the hardest thing I have ever had to go through. I have two younger sisters. I have to be strong for them and my wonderful mom. I feel writing poetry is a way of accepting the situation and letting my emotions out.

Losing You


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

The day you left
Was the day my world came tumbling down.
I felt so alone...so empty...so angry!
I knew the second I heard the gun shot
That my daddy was gone.

It was hard to believe that you were gone.
Why did you have to take the easy way out?
Why did you have to leave me so suddenly?
I feel so numb.
I'm hoping, praying that one day
I'll wake up and this will all be a dream.

Watching day turn to night
In a blink of an eye,
Sitting down thinking of you
Brings sudden tears to my eyes,
Just wishing for one more day with you.

My legs become weak, my body is numb,
My eyes are watery.
Mom collapses to the ground.
The walls are closing in on me.
I can't breathe, can't walk, can't speak.

I was Daddy's Little Girl.
You would hold my hand and catch me if I fell.
You would reassure me that I was going to be okay.
Daddy, I promise I will remember everything you taught me.

Daddy, save me a place up in heaven,
Where we will someday be reunited.
Daddy, I want you to know that I will always love you.
I love you more than words can explain.
I wish you were here,
I wish you were alive.
