Loss of Father Poems

Thoughts on Death of Father

The death of someone close to us leave us shocked with grief. We cannot understand how one minute this person was here and the next they are gone. The truth is that those we love are never truly gone. The body may have run its course, but the soul lives forever. Human beings have been cognizant of eternal life since the beginning of time. Every culture has its own traditions about death and reincarnation. The anxiety commonly felt about death in our culture is a result of a scientific schema which says that "if I don't see it, it's not there".

  1. Dad, What's It Like In Heaven?

    Father's Day In Heaven

    If time exists in heaven,
    Do you still rise with the sun?
    Do you and Mom share breakfast
    Before your day has begun?

    My Wonderful Father

    We miss your face; you were taken too soon.
    Your beaming smile that lit up the room,
    Them cheeky dimples and twinkle in your eye.
    We keep asking ourselves why, oh why.

    Missing My Dad Poem

    Your battle is now over; no more tears flowing down your cheek,
    no more pain, no more suffering; now you are no longer weak.
