A LOVING DAD


I wish I had my dad by my side
Just thinking of him makes me cry
Never being able to get to know him
Hurts me inside everyday that goes by
The stories I hear
To my eyes they bring a tear
Before I had to say good-bye
I wish with him I had more time
My mom lets me know how much he cared
Since I was too young to have my own memories to share
Seeing pictures of him I want to know
Why so soon he had to go
Good things that he did to help someone else
Hearing about that just makes my heart melt
I just hoped that the time with him could have been longer
Because I know he was a loving husband and father
I am sad that we are apart
I miss my dad with all my heart

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
