Goodbye - Poem by stephanie spencer


I wish we had more time, more memories together,
But instead, I will cherish the time we had forever,
I will never forgive myself - towards the end I wasn't there,
The family was by your side to show you we do care.
I pray that it's true that your passing was painless and quick,
And that you're now at peace up there and no longer feeling sick.

I already miss you so much, Dad - more than words can ever say,
I already think of you every second of every day.
It was the simple things in life you chose to live for,
Because you were happier knowing you gave your loved ones more,
You hid behind your bark with others but you had a heart of gold,
You strangely preferred others to see you as cold,
I knew you, Dad, even if you mainly showed how you felt in drink,
You were a jolly drunk and softer than most people would think.

There is more people that cared for you than you thought,
You're missed, all of us are left behind distraught,
I know the tears I hold back will flow before too long,
But I will do you proud, Dad, and try my hardest to stay strong.
Your place on this earth I know no one will ever forget,
And not one minute with you I will ever regret.
Every night I will look at the stars in the sky,
But for today, Dad, this is my Goodbye.

    And not one minute with you I will ever regret......! Very true.I too lost my father recently and your words brought back memories. A tribute to your father indeed. I know how it feels to lose a loved one. I miss him terribly and hence can relate to the lines (Report) Reply
