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".

    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.
    I still do not understand why this had to happen to you,
    but I am proud to say you are my dad, the greatest man I ever knew.
