Loss of Father Poem

My Dad Is Gone

Sitting on your lap
so sick I am 
but not as sick as I  never knew you could be

Birthdays fly by
I wish I can have them back
the biggest gift was sitting on your lap

watching you forget things
that you love
from an illness that I wish to destroy
only could you remember
the fight we had
I would apologize time and time again.

Watching you lay there
fading away is so hard
the time has come to tell the doc
As I wait and they tell me you're
off the air support I can only sit and wait

Your are almost gone
to be with your dad and mom.

The last minute with you
I can never forget
the look you gave me and the love it meant
telling you it is ok to go   
hearing the alarm go
and screaming come back
as if I never said it's ok.

The day has come listening
to what people have to say
about you will never go away
finally time for putting your urn into the ground.
