So Many Things I Wanted To Say - Poem by Harry J. Couchon Jr

My darling daughter, before God took you away
There were so many things I wanted to say
I loved you, my baby really loved you so
And that you loved me, Holly I already know

But then you died and I never got the chance
I was destroyed by this tragic circumstance
A daughter shouldn't be the first to die
Leaving a father crying and asking God why

I never got to tell you why
Sometimes there would be teardrops in my eye
They were tears of happiness and glee
That God sent this little angel to me

And if you were still alive today
I'd tell you that I'd never go away
If you needed me I would be there
With a father's love and compassion to share

Why God decided to take you' I'll never know
To leave me here crying and missing you so
Maybe Heaven needed another star at night
And you were selected for your beauty so bright

Now when I look up into the nighttime skies
And all of the stars that fill my eyes
I talk to them all hoping one is you
And tell you all the things I always wanted to

    I was once told by a medicine man in the swett lodge 'For we will never know why, why we lose our loved ones, why our loved ones get sick, we will never understand until that time, when we meet our relatives again on the other side. It is then we will see, no more pain, no more sickness, no more tragedies. For our life on earth is for a short time, when we leave this earth we will only know peace, beauty, and happiness. So keep on talking to her she hears you. I believe that when a relative passes, they can hear us, and they can talk to us, they are the whispers in our ears when we need them the most.
