A poem for my Dad

DAD
WITH THE PASSAGE OF TIME DAD
MY MEMORIES GREW STRONG
THE PAIN MAY HAS LESSONED
BUT I STILL THINK YOU WERE WRONG
TO TAKE YOUR OWN LIFE DAD
IN THE MANNER YOU DID
LIVES FOREVER IN MY HEART
SO NOW DAD I BID
THAT YOUR SOUL IS SET FREE
AND YOUR LONINESS GONE
THAT THE MAN I REMEMBER
HAS GONE BEYOND
THE PAIN THAT HAUNTED HIS VERY SHORT LIFE
THE TROUBLES THAT MADE HIM LEAVE HIS CHILDREN AND WIFE
THE FEAR AND THE LOSS OF A MISPENT YOUTH
THAT MADE YOU HIDE IN A BOTTLE
AND RUN FROM THE TRUTH
THE DEVASTATION HE FELT AT LOSING HIS DAD
THAT ONE PIECE OF SANITY
WAS ALL THAT HE HAD
SO NOW I SIT HERE DAD AS IF IN YOU SHOES
NOT SCARED OF THE TRUTH AND NOTHING TO LOSE
BEING LOST IN YOUR PAST IS A DANGEROUS THING
WHEN YOU FORGET THAT YOUR FUTURE
HAS SO MUCH TO BRING
i WILL NEVER FORGET THE TROUBLES WE HAD
AND THE UNSOCIABLE HABITS WE ALCOHOLICS HAVE
BUT I WILL LIVE FOR TOMORROW NOW AND I HOPE YOULL BE PROUD
THAT IM LOOKING FOR THE PEACE THAT YOU NEVER FOUND......
FOR MY DAD BRIAN FROM HIS DAUGHTER WHO MISSES HIM STILL XXXXXXX

Wow, Lost my dad Brian from Alcohol in Feb. 28, 2005. That's was very scary to read sounded kinda like my dad and his life. I'm sorry for your loss. That poem was very good and hit me in a spot that needed to be hit......

I lost my dad to alcoholism too, that combined with his early drug usage. I also lost a cousin to drunk driving. All those word in that poem were things that I would love to say to him right now, even though I know I can't. But reading them gave me a feelin that I've been longing for. Thank you for posting your poem.
