Hey Dad

Today marks the 7 year anniversary of my dad passing away…I really wanted to write a poem for him as a tribute. As hard as it was writing it, I managed to put something together so I’d like to share it with you. I’ve read it aloud too, I’m hoping he heard it ♥

Hey dad, 

I’m struggling to write this,

I don’t know where to begin,

I know it’s been 7 years,

But still there’s just one thing…

I know you didn’t choose to go,

The angels needed you, 

But so did I and now your gone,

I don’t know what to do…. 


I think about the happy times,

And all the times we shared,

I feel I didn’t show you everyday,

Just how much I cared,

Now I know it’s too late,

But I really hope you know,

You were the best dad in the world,

And how much I love you so,

Your jokes and your laugh was infectious,

God, I miss your smile,

But I know some day I’ll see you again,

I just have to wait a while. 

There’s things you’ll never be here for,

Baby’s and walking me down the aisle,

Although you won’t be by my side,

You’ll be looking down and you’ll smile,

I hope I’ve made you proud dad,

Me, your little girl…

I know you’ve got your angel wings

And your in another world,

I think I need to go now dad, 

I just wanted to say hey,

I love and miss you so, so much

And I’ll see you again some day ♥
