Loss of Father Poem

I wrote this poem when I was in 6th grade. This poem tells a little bit about how I felt about my father's death. He died when I was 8 years old in a military training accident. His name was Lorenzo Mossalli. He was a great father and bestfriend.

My Bestfriend, My Father Died


Published by Family Friend Poems August 2010 with permission of the Author.

No one can hear my screams
In my thoughts or in my dreams
As I lie here waiting patiently
I wait for the day you come back to me

God took you away
He made me let you go
It happened for a reason
That's all I care to know

Lately I have been thinking
Thinking about the past
The laughs and cries we shared together
You died too young, too fast

I will always think back
Back to that horrible day
The day I found out
That you, my friend, my father died.

I lost my dad a month an a half ago and this helped a lot and describes me perfectly. I am only 17 and my dad was my best friend, I feel for everyone who has lost a parent.
