Losing Dad - Poem by Mary Nagy

My life was changed so harshly.
It feels like yesterday,
when God said you have had enough
and that you couldn't stay.

I miss you more than ever...
Your guidance and your love.
But, I know you're still watching
silently from above.

The love you gave still warms me
the way it always will.
But leaving left an empty space
that time can never fill.

From heaven you're still giving
the love you always had.
I know you hear me talk to you.
I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU DAD! ! !

    This is such a touching poem. I know how hard it is to lose your father. I lost mine back in 2004 while my husband was deployed to Iraq. I looked up this poem actually for my good friend who's dad just passed yesterday. Which now her husband along with mine are both deployed again to Iraq. I think this will help her and I think its really such a great and well written poem. You have really put great feelings into words. May God Bless you honey in your time of need and may he give you the peace that you need also. God Bless you Mary (Report)Reply

    Awwww, this poem made me cry because I can relate to it. Not my dad but my grandad. It is a hard time but we do have the rest of our family to help us through it. You can get through this Mary! !
    All the best.
    Great poem!
    Love Becky
