Grief Poem

Poem About Missing My Dad

I wrote this poem on the anniversary of my father's death. He died of cancer and nursing him was hard; watching someone you love in pain is always hard.

A Poem For My Dad


Published by Family Friend Poems June 2014 with permission of the author.

It's been three years since you left us, and I still miss you so
I wish I could have held you tight so you didn't have to go
But that would have been so selfish, as you were in such pain
But I know that when my time comes I will see you once again

We never spoke of how we felt, but I hope you always knew
How proud I was to call you dad, and how much I loved you
They tell me whilst I still walk the earth, you will still be here
I remind people so much of you, and they're words I love to hear

If I could have just one more day with you to tell you
All the things I never did, and for now I cannot do
So till we meet again, dear Dad, I'll keep you in my heart
And when we meet up once again we will never have to part
