Loss of Father Poem

A Daughter's Love For Her Father

I never told my dad I loved him. We just didn't do that in our family. I know he knew though; it was just never said. I wrote this poem so I could put into words just how much he meant to me, even though I never told him.

No Longer Here


Published by Family Friend Poems June 2017 with permission of the Author.

I'd tell you about my dad
if only I knew where to start.
No longer here to see me,
but forever in my heart

I'll miss you, Dad, but I'll never forget
such a fine, upstanding man.
No longer here to love me
as only a father can.

I miss you, Dad, and always will,
but I know you always knew.
No longer here for me to tell you
how much I love you.
