My Father - Poem by Eman Elbadawi

He was
No I can't say 'he was'
He is
In my heart
He is
In the core of my heart
He is
In the heart of my love
Still
He is
My love
His gentleness
I can never forget
Valentine is at the door
And still
I can not love
Anyone more
His death
Was a birth for him
And for myself
A death
To happiness
Seven years have passed
And men are his shadow!

    This poem, simple as it seems, says so much more than its few words and short lines. It is the essence of love and a wonderful tribute to your father.

    Eman, this poem deserved more than a 6. It has unique string of words to describe your dad. I just lost my dad on May 14th of this year, so I could feel the pain in the lines which matched the pain in my heart as well. Keep strong, friend...and take care. (Report) Reply
