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

      I empathize completely. Even after nearly eleven years, I think about my Dad and what a wonderful presence he was in my life. Beautifully done.

      I can understand how you feel given my own experience of loss, too. Every moment, I still remember.

      Your words beautifully expressed the sadness of your lost and how much your dad meant to you. Writing is very therapeutic and will help you to cope and move on. Thank you for sharing your grief, Mary.

      I can feel your pain within the lines of this touching tribute to your Daddy. I can relate Mary as I also lost my Dad to illness. Time will lessen the pain and enable you to remember without sorrow. A beautiful sensitive poem.

      Mary, this is a beautiful poem as a tribute to your daddy. I understand how you feel because I lost my Daddy as well. Although it's been 21 years that he has passed away, there is a lot of void in my life and troubles because he is not there for me any longer. I share in your pain and sorrow.
