Loss of Father Poem

Poem About Missing My Father Who Passed When I Was Young

I tried typing this so many times, and I just could never find the right words for this introduction. All I really have to say is that missing someone who has passed is okay. Crying does not make you weak; it just means you've been strong for too long. Be who you are; don't be anything fake because life is short and you want life to be your best memories.

Missing You In The Memories


Published by Family Friend Poems December 2015 with permission of the Author.

I count down the days
every single year.
I try to forget,
but it brings back the tears.

I've never missed someone more in my life.
I try fill this hole,
I try to find you through all this I fight.

I fight through the thoughts,
the memories we shared.
The things I remember are things I can't even bear.

Your voice slowly fades away in the dark,
but I don't want to forget,
even though it's hard.

It's hard to remember everything that you've lost,
the person you were before it was gone.

I've come so far
and changed so much.
The memories are a blessing.
My heart they touch.

If my heart could talk, it'd say I miss you.
If it had emotion, it'd cry and kiss you

I hope you're safe
and soon I'll see,
and then we can share a new memory.

In the great and unforgettable memory of Daddy, Robert Holley Jr., who passed when I was only 8.
