In Memory Poem

Story? I have no story? I just wanted to put down in writing how I felt today. Everyday. Sometimes it is hard to say out loud or nobody wants to listen.
I love you Dad today, tomorrow, always.
A perfect Father. I will love and miss you always.
You were special even more so seeing I was chosen.
God bless my Dad John.

I'm so sorry for your loss I lost my father 6 years ago on the 29 of December which was 9 days after my 7 birthday. We don't know how he died but one thing we do now was that he loved us dearly.

Thinking About Dad and Remembering How Special He Was


Published: May 2011

Each day I wake to start a day that's normal as can be.
Some cooking, cleaning, paperwork, as busy as a bee.

But everyday the thoughts of you that buzz around my head distract me from this busy life and I stop to think instead.

Baking cakes and trifles that I made and brought to you and the smile you gave so thankful for these little treats I'd do.

You never let things get you down you took them in your stride, you cared and loved us ALL Dad with such gratitude and pride.

The whole world could be screaming but you it never phased.
For this dear Dad and a whole lot more, I'ts you we have to praise.

I hope you know how proud I was to have you in my life,
How proud you made my sisters and of course your loving wife,

We miss you everyday Dad our lives are not the same,
The ache in our hearts that once you filled just will not go away.

So strange as it may seem Dad as I stand here loosing patience, with this endlessness of cooking and a list of hungry patients,

I take a while to calm myself and my thoughts are all of you, For you make me smile you had that affect on everyone you knew.

As a Father and a Husband no man could take your place, I'm so thankful you were in my life you will never be replaced.

Thinking about my father everyday makes me hurt inside that can't be cured. He was the best father I ever had in this world. I miss his smile, the disciplinary of being father, and being a good father. The man that inspire all young generation in my family that one day they can be good father just like him. My father taught me a lot of motivation about life, and I am so happy he was here when I always needed help. But since he is gone I just want to say thank you father for everything. I love you and miss you so much. May you rest in peace.

I got tears in my eyes when I read this! My dad passed away four years ago when I was 10, I'm now 14 and it had been so hard on my family. I have one older sister and two younger brothers. My dad died of a brain tumor, but when he was in the hospital my mom was always with him and my sister, who was only 14 at the time, had to raise us. On the 18th of May it made four years for my dad. I was crying all day at school and I only have one true friend. We where in band class and when he saw me crying he started freaking out and asked if I was okay, I just nodded my head yea, and He said Something clearly is the matter with you. Do you want to talk about it? I just shook my head no and walked away. I really wished I would have talked to him about it, because I'm a person who keeps all my feelings inside. He is the only one I can talked to about anything. But my dad's death is not one thing I like talking about. I'm sorry for your loss, but I know how you feel, so you're not alone.
