Poem to My Daddy

I wish I could bring you back daddy

I know your time was up on this earth

But this emptiness is something I'm not sure I can get used to

This kind of sorrow seems to come and go and is brought on by memories

Anytime I see something that reminds me of you the tears start to fall

Trying to remember the way you looked before you got sick has become so hard

I keep remembering how fragile you looked before you took your last breath

It feels like someone has knocked the wind out of me

This is a new kind of pain for me

A raw type of pain that I can't fix

You were my world daddy

I never got to tell you how grateful I was for everything you taught me

People tell me to remember the good times

But that just makes it harder because your not here to make new memories with

Time will hopefully help ease this heartache

I never even knew I had this many tears to cry

I miss and love you more than words could ever express
