I can still see your face clearly
Even though seventeen years have passed.
I miss you and I still love you
No matter what.

Have I ever said thank you
For all life's lessons I learned?
That even in your sick bed
You continued to teach me

I could never be any luckier
To have had somebody great.
I will never forget you dad.
I am me because of you.

Nice poem about Dad

This is a real nice poem about Dad. I can really relate to this. No matter what, the mistakes they have done. They are life's lesson to me. Even in his sick bed, he's teaching me about death. Now I no longer am afraid, as I journeyed with his last breath. They pass through that door of no return. I walked with him to the door. I can only sit and wonder what's beyond. Thanks Bench, for a nice poem about Dad.
