Loss of Father Poem

June 23rd 2011 my father was killed in a construction accident that could have been prevented. He was working on a structure that was 20 feet in the air. He was not wearing any safety gear so when the structure collapsed my father fell to the concrete and died from severe head and chest injuries.

You Had To Go Too Soon

Published: December 2013

During the day I have to be strong
I try so hard to show that nothing is wrong.
But at night my tears will flow,
it was just so sudden you had to go.
People keep asking if I'm ok,
the answer is no but its yes I say.
I'm trying to move on,
but it's just not fair that you are gone.
I do not have any hate in my heart,
but I was not ready for a new start.
It started out a normal day
And with one phone call it all went gray.
As I packed you a bag I said you would not die,
when the doctors piled in I said it was a lie.
All I wanted was to see my dad,
all those doctors made me so mad.
I didn't want anyone else to see you that way,
but no matter what I had no say.
Your skin was so cold as I gave you one last kiss,
you dad are the one that I will always miss.

My father, Peter, died on May 29, 2016. He was everything to me, and he made my life so much better. He always listened to me. He always stayed by my side in good and bad times. He was my world and now that he is gone I feel an emptiness that can never be fulfilled. I was adopted by him as a young girl because my biological dad, Nelson, had to stay in another country, but even with my biological father alive, I never stopped being his daughter, plus he never wanted me to stay away from my biological dad and encouraged me to keep the long distance relationship. The irony of it all is that my biological father died in the year 2000 and now my dad dies in 2016 of the same illness. Pa, I love you every day, more and more, and hope to be with you again when my time comes.

I grew up with it being only my daddy and me. My mother has never really seemed to love me or care about me. I just turned 18 a month after I lost my Daddy. He is All that I ever had.

I haven't been feeling well since he left. I always think I could have prevented his death,
