I'll Miss You..X

© Gemma Logue
Now your gone
Your bodies ashes,
you watch us all
as our world sadly crashes.

I'll miss your shiny
Spiky head,
And the way you tucked
Me into bed.

Even tough I am
Now older,
With out tucking me in,
My bed was colder.

All I wanted was a last phone call
Without the tears or sadness at all,
To one last time hear your voice
I wish death was not a choice.

But now your gone
Your ashes spread,
We'll meet again
When I am dead.

You helped me through
When times were sad,
You got me through
When I got mad.

We never spent
Much time together,
But now this way
You'll be with me forever.

I miss you loads
My life is sad,
I love you loads
My dear old dad..x

    My father passed away almost 2 years ago now. I can really sympathize with you. I'm now 17, going on 18, but I still cry like a kid when I think of my dad.

    This poem made me cry, my dad was a heavy pot smoker and abandoned me when I was 2, I found out when I was 12 that he committed suicide.

    When I was four I lost my dad to a car accident and now I'm 14 going on 15. When my mom gave me some letter that my dad wrote her from jail I cried for days because I didn't know how much my dad cared about me and my mom and still to day I will start to miss him and I can read the letter and hear his voice in my mind telling me that every thing will be ok and he won't ever let anything happen to my or my 2 half brothers and half sister

    I lost my dad 4 years ago Friday...I hadn't thought about how long it had been since tonight but it feels like a lifetime...I read this poem and for the first time in 4 years I cried like a baby...I'm 13 now and every breath I take is troubled but reading this I know I'm not alone...from everything I said I know I can summarize it back to this 1 simple sentence. I miss my dad and I want him back with me :''(

    My dad died this year I'm only 15, 1 months ago. It hurts like it was just yesterday. I cry myself to sleep every night because he isn't there to tuck me in. He died suddenly and I never got the chance to say goodbye. I miss him dearly. By reading this poem it brought me to tears. You told the exact same thing I am going through. Thank you.
