Loss of Father Poem

Remembering Times With Dad

I wrote this poem because my dad was not here to see me graduate or see his grandchild born. Nor will he be here to watch me get married and have a full life. Ever since he died I feel like a piece of me is gone. He was the only parent I had since my mom was a drug addict. I just wish I could see him one more time and show him what I have accomplished with my life. I know he would be proud of me. I just wish he could tell me himself.

My Daddy

I can't believe it's been four years.
It doesn't feel like it's been that long.
I wish you could come home,
But in the sky is where you belong.

It would make me so happy
If I could just visit for one day.
Just so I could talk to you,
And everything would be okay.

I remember the days we had together,
How you would pick me up every Friday.
All the fun things we did,
I especially remember my birthdays.

I remember all the trips to the mall,
And the days at the beach.
The times I did stuff wrong,
And the life lessons you would teach.

I loved you with all my heart,
And I wish you didn't have to go.
All the good times we had,
But that seems like so long ago.

I miss you so much, Daddy,
And I wish I could have you back.
I'm lost without you, Daddy.
You're the one thing my life lacks.

I, too, have lost my father, and the void created can never be filled. There are so many things that I feel I should have done for him when he was around, so many things I should have said to him when he was around, but I didn't and now even if I want to, I cannot say them to him.
