My Dad

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Print

My Dad

We miss your face; you were taken too soon.

Your beaming smile that lit up the room,

Them cheeky dimples and twinkle in your eye.

We keep asking ourselves why, oh why.

We miss your Daddy cuddles and kisses on the cheek,

The way you gave us strength when we were feeling weak.

We miss how you cared and protected us so.

But why, oh why, did you have to go?

We miss your voice and hearing you moan,

Watching your iPad or texting on your phone.

We miss you laughing and hearing you sing.

We even miss the microwave going ding ding.

We miss the jokes the banter you had at work

And cluttering the table, driving mum berserk,

Your coat and hat draped over the chair.

We just can’t understand why life is so unfair!

We love you Daddy; it’s unbelievably clear

That we would do anything to have you back here.

But until the day we meet again,

Warm in our hearts is where you remain.
