Dadís Gift of Love

Daddy my dear dad
You passed away so quick
It was hard, the life you had
Because you were so sick

I remember one rainy night
In my thoughts as was written
You had tucked out of sight
A wet cold crying kitten

Found upon a stormy night
As you were walking home
You gave it to me upon sight
So I wouldnít feel alone

Your life of love you gave
From years of past gone by
You took them to the grave
Tears swell throughout my eye

I canít help it, I just cry

My Gift to my father who rests peacefully now and has gone to a better place. Happy father's day.

This work really touched deep Mae..I have been through several different emotions with your works today but none that touched me so deeply as this tribute to your beloved father.. I am known to cry at the least of things and for many reasons..but this one really had me going..

I canít help it, I just deeply that line touched the all of me.

You are blessed with wonderful memories of a fathers love, and your love for him is evident in this work..

Emotional, Tender and Loving...Beautiful.

Blessings to you my friend..Dee.

I read the last line again and again. It was very sweet with emotion bursting out of each line.
But that last line, "I can't help it, I just cry"
I think that would strike a chord with anyone. We've all been there, where we just can't help it anymore.
Thank you for sharing. Great work I think.

This poem was very beautiful. Though losing a loved one, especially a parent, is something undeniably painful, it's very true that they should never be forgotten. It's also important to remember the 'Gift of Love' that only parents give to their children.

Excellent work!
