Daughter Death Poem

Losing A Daughter To Cancer

We lost our darling daughter 5 years ago to cancer. There is not a day that goes past when she isn't still in our mind. She was just 23 years old. We feel that we have been robbed. I have two other daughters and a son, but Vickie was our youngest. Some days the pain is unbearable. My poetry is my only way of setting down my feelings.

How do you mend a broken heart?
Why did our God tear us apart?
Each new morning I speak your name.
Life in the world is not the same.

Cancer took you away from me
At the age of just twenty-three.
I held your hand, sat at your side.
When you passed, I wished I'd died!

My heart is empty, all life gone,
A dark space where the light once shone,
Tears of frustration on my face.
There's nothing left to take your place.

Each night my eyes look up and pray
That here somehow, someway, someday
Your soul will find a special way
To look back down and say you're okay.
