Goodbye Papa

BeckyTP formally known as Rebecca Moraa is a student at Moi University Main Campus Kenya. My passion in poetry grew in primary school.

To the next world I send you,
No more goodbyes I know,
If it were not God's will,
Then I couldn't keep my smile...

Now our ways we need to go,
But every memory is still you,
You were always there to listen,
Our sorrows you could sustain...

The pain is still new,
To accept we'll never see you,
But each passing day to us is new,
To go a day without you.

Many questions have risen,
Uncontrollable tears have been shed,
No one knows why it hurts this much,
But we know it shall be well.

Your chair in our sitting room is empty,
But we'll always feel your spirit shining on us,
For we know all is not lost,
It's just the start of another era...

The pain in our hearts subsides,
But the love we bore will always galore,
For in spirit my hand you still hold,
And for us we know you'll stand forever.

We let you go, because we couldn't hold you back,
But here we are, all in the image of you,
We promise to live, by everything you lived for
We'll never let you down, we shall make you proud.

I wish I had more time, to make my goodbye longer,
But it's already time, for me to let you go,
But you're not gone, none of us is,
We shall plant a tree for you,
So as it grows, shall your spirit also shine brighter.
Goodbye papa.
