You touched my soul with your poem, thank you. I am left to wonder if my son feels this way. He was 8 when his father walked away from us after a divorce. My son is in his 20's now and many times I see your same loss and ponder in his eyes, "I'll be better, I'll do better. I wish I knew how to make it better, my heat actully feels as though it withers evey time I see this.

This poem reminds me of the song Seasons In The Sun" by Terry Jacks which is one of my favorite songs and touches my heart every time I hear it. My daughter found it and after reading it wanted to send it to her dad and wanted me to read it as well. I know that it expressed how all of my children feel about their dad even though they can not express it themselves into words. Thank you for doing that for them.

julie
This is a great poem. It makes one realize how important it is to say the things you need to, not to wait because it may be to late and in the end you have unanswered questions that you may never have an answer too. I lost my father at the age of 19, I am now 34. He was the most wonderful "dad" and I miss him everyday. I wish now I would have told him I loved him without a day passing. I hope this poem sends a message to all those young people out there who are fortunate enough to still have a father in their lives. Live every day like it is his last.
Charlotte
Its from the heart, and you can tell how special he was to you. Im sure hes proud of you.

makesha
this was a beautiful poem. one of my old friends just had his dad die and this made me think of him there are many ways one person can deal with the pain but i think there is only one way to express it i LOVED the Poem and i will never forget it!
Laura
I thought that the poem was very moving. I was touched by it deeply and although my father is alive and well I understand the pain you are going through. Everything is going to be ok in the end, I promise. it will always hurt when you think about him but you will get back up on your feet. these things take a while to heal from. i know what it is like to lose someone near and dear to you. i am sure that your father is still very proud of you, and if he heard that amazing poem that you wrote i am sure that he would apriciate it.
Janet

kayla
I liked this poem. Although my dad is still alive and well,I have lost someone close like that to me. My aunt has cancer and the docters said she will never get better and I will eventually lose her too. She is the one who taught me how to cook,fight,and speak up to people that used to hate me. When she leaves me i will be emotionaly shattered,but I will never forget her.

Alicia
i thought that this was extremely touching and it hit me hard. my father also died when i was a young girl. when it happened i didn't know what i was going to do. i loved my father very much and stiLL do and from this poem i can see that you do to. sometimes it is hard to understand why these things happen but now that im 18 i can sort of understand that everything has it's own season, when one thing falls another takes it's place. All we can do is wait till our season too is over and we can be with the ones we love.
Courtney
this poem really touched me deep in my heart. espesially when my friends dad died a few months ago! :-(

Tiara
This poem has made me cry,cry cry,and cry. I wish i could have said that to my dad before he dies. But i don't have enough guts to tell him now. This poem has made me think of the good times i have had with my dad and i just wish he could've given me another chance to say i'm sorry. I give you all the credit to the autor who wrote this in favor of thier dad. I'm still crying while i'm typing this. That's how much tis poem has touched me. I have been here 15 min. typing this to you and giving you so much credit. I just hope that you could have said all that when your dad was still alive. I think that he would have been so proud of you for writing this in favor of him. For all this i give you credit. It must have hurt your heart when you wrote this for him and he can't even read it but i bet he is in heaven watching you with much proud inside.
Kiara

O my heavens! This poem touched my heart like never before! This poem reminds me so much of my dad, and I look at how many people looked at this poem, and has lost there dad, and now I know i'm not the only one. I see myself as the only one having trouble in my life, and not having a dad to turn to, but now I know i'm not the only one! I wish there was a way we could talk to one another. anyways this poem is amazing, def. something that touched me! i'm sorry for all the rest out there who don't have a dad, like me, all I can say is be thankful for what we do have{even though it's hard}!

i felt so touched by this poem, this definetely deserves to win. the poet must have such an amzing connection associated with his feelings nd i feel very envious and i would feel privelaged to meet Mr. M Anderson. and i have this huge feeling that his dad would have been so proud of him.
Melanie

Nonya
I love poetry of all kinds. This poem was very nice and it touched me. Its not hard to do sometimes, but it even brought a tear to my eye.
Alana
This poem shows alot of the emotions i felt when my parents were divorcing and emotions I still feel today. Although my father is not dead, i feel as though he did in some way to me. I long to hear him praise me, and I long to see him, both of which i hardly ever hear or do. I miss him, and some days it feels like i can't ever reach him, just as if he has died.
Lucky
Dear Micheal, Thank you for your deep poem, I don't know if you would bother to read this, but yes, I would have cried if I didn't hold back my tears. It even touched me deeper because I read your poem while I was doing a poem talking about my life, in which my dad had a big part in it. Even though I'm a girl and I lost my dad when I was 8, not a teenager like you, my dad left me a deep place in my heart. When he left me, I felt like I'm missing a piece of my heart just like you did. I could have exchange anything except my family to have him back. But then I know that I have to keep moving on and live so that my dad would be proud of me. Keep moving on and be a good person, isn't that what every dad wants their child to accomplish? So yes, we should keep moving on, because even though we can't see them, but they can see us, and so they're always beside us, and moreover, in our hearts. Thank you very much. Wish you luck! P. S. And once again, I know your dad is looking at you proudly right now. He's very lucky to have you as a son--not a normal son, but a poet. P. P. S. Sorry for such a long comment. It's just that your poem inspired me so much. ;)
Heather
Thank you for writing what I couldn't find the words to say. My best friend died last year and, though I fancy myself a writer, I could never get the words on paper describing how lost I felt without her. Amazing poem.
Romina
This is a simple, poignant, beautiful poem that really touches one somewhere deep inside. It did me.
Nicole
This poem was sad and it really reminded me of. well, me. My dad died as well and I haven't done anything about it. Haen't let it out. So I think I'll write a poem about my dad, like you did. I loved this poem so much and I hope you write more

shashauna
I NEVER LOST ANYONE CLOSE BUT U TOUCH MY SOUL. I AM SO SORRY THAT THE DARK CLOUDS WILL NOT GO AWAY.
Julia
I was looking through poems to get to read in my drama class and I came accross this one and I had to stop my self from blinking because I had tears in my eyes (when I blink they run down my face)and everything turned blury and I couldn't finish reading the poem. It tugged my heart like a nasty pull. You need support as I do too.
mritunjay Kumar
just unexplanable emotions you have explaned. just untuchable feelings you have touched. god bless you.
paige
This poem is a true inspiration. I lost my father, but probably not at the same age. For you see, I lost my daddy at 10 months of age. This poem has helped me. In what way you ask? Well, I thought I was the only GIRL in the world who had lost her father.
Dylan
I remember what it was like to feel that way, even 11 years after its hard to go on without him. Good poem.
Jessica
What a touching poem! I still have tears in my eyes!
Jamie
Oh My God, this poem touched me. it was like how i had a cousin. but i like this poem. its kewl! Excellant
Jezabell
I thought that poem was marvulous and it touched me deep inside and now I wanna cry but you now that you have talent and you need to keep it up because yous a poet and you know it. love always
Laurie
Really touched my heart, I wish I had a dad like the one you describe. He was there but never there, and I only existed to him. I loved him more than he will ever know, yet I could only hope he could have love me one-fourth as much as I loved him. Though he is still alive to me, I am dead to him. I pray he will change before it is too late. Sincerely, Laurie
Peta
i just felt 2 crie i lost my dad forever i will never see him again,i luv this poem because like u i am like the same, way maybe my dad did not die but he is lost forever and u want 2 no why see he tried 2 kill me mum and he is in jail for life i miss the days he would pick me up from my feet, and everythink would be alright. p. s he will always be in my heart untill i see him in heaven i hope and iam a girl not a boy who has lost her daddy.
Desiree

Lis
I loved it! It made me want to cry! Michael, seriously, this is the best poem I have ever read! I love it so much! I know this girl who's dad died this summer. She's the oldest of three kids, but she's the only one that will ever remember him. And this poem just makes me cry because of that. But keep writing poems, you have a talent and gift. And OMG i love this poem so much!

This poem is like many i write. I lost my whole family so I know how it is and the thing is my poems always used to sound like this and then later in my years I started writing about how much I am blessed for what I do have I suffered a great loss but with God's guidence I'm alive. this is a really good poem and its from the heart. I really hope that the author has new and good experiences. in his/her life

I lost my father many years ago. We were never real close until the last few years of his life. It seems as if we were just developing a special relationship when he was suddenly taken. I miss him very much and feel as if there was so much in our lives that was left undone. I can deeply relate to this poem.

my dad died in july this year and i was really sad but after reading this poem it touched my heart. you have a real talent and i think that you have a lot of potential. i might not have met you but it takes a lot to get over death. some where out there you will find someone who you love and will share the pain that you have been through. believe me. i wish you all the best in life and never give up hope cause life isnt all about giving up!

I lost my dad 11-6-06 from a really bad murder that happened in my home. he was only 36 years old and i miss him dearly and nuttin will ever bring him back so. To all the people who say that they hate there dads you need to shut up beacause once hes gona you wont kon wat to do without him you will never kno wat you missed out on and nuttin can ever bring him back. So thats my little comment on how you need your father and then you can come tell me how you hate them
raven

I read your poem. Twice actually. First time just because I was generally interested and the second time because I just felt the need to. Maybe it was to try and get the most out of it, cos it made me think. You're gifted. I genuinely dont know what to say, and thats not like me, but something in that has really got to me. Keep being you. X

Thank you Michael for sharing this beautiful poem. I lost my husband of 43 years, and can identify with the memories that bring the tears, the regrets, the utter inability to come to terms with the finality of the loss of a loved one. Rarely however have I read a poem which expresses thepain with such simplicity, yet so profound a depth.
Kassie

maria
you know sometimes we take those people that we love for granted, thinking that they will be with us forever but. life does tear us away from people from whom we will always adore and remember. my father is still alive and everyday he calls to make sure we are all okay, he e-mails me to see if i need anything, he will deposit money into my bank account when i am broke and he always tells me God bless you and i love before we hang up the phone. YOUR POEM TOUCHED ME IN SUCH A WAY, THANK YOU ! My poor dad the annoying old man with his boring conversations, with his constant advice and his really lonely boring life, my poor dad "the bug" that constantly annoys me when he calls a 100 times a day when i have a problem and he tries to solve it, my poor old man whom i totally left forgotten. poor old man. NOW, I will be calling him everyday to make sure he is okay,i will thank him for all his "god bless you", i will listen closely to what he says,i will invite him over more often and i will thank him for solving my problems. MY DAD HE IS STILL MY HERO HUH????
john
this is so sad and thats why i like it so much.
vicki
this poem is amazing, i really feel for u, altho i have not lost my father i never had thi sort of experiance with him, he has never been there but pretends to care, your poem really toched me i really felt your pain, i cant imagine the pain u must be going through. but your poem really expressed your feelings it was a beautiful thing to read it really shows your love for him!

This poem is very touching. It hits a strong chord in my soul due to the tragic suicide of my father a year and a half ago. I always wanted him to be proud of me and felt like I didn't fulfill that in the last few years of his life. I have now completed college and I am still searching for his approval. how will I ever?

This is a fabulous poem, and really grabs the spirit of the father/son relationship. I lost my father in car accident a year ago to the day. it's been a trying year, and trying to come to terms with his death and my feelings has been the biggest challange of my life. This poem brings a years worth of soul searching together. you remember all of these great memories, but you always have this hidden feeling in the back of your mind of was he really proud of what I become??? Very well thought out and put together. BRAVO! Thanks for the tears. your poem was definately well worth it!

Wow. This poem touched me on a very personal note. It was beautifully written. I recently lost my father, not to the angel of death but to a sin called pride. My condolences to you. Keep up the writing, although it may hurt, "what doesn't kill us only makes us stronger. "

Dear Michael, Please accept my fatherly love for u. I am a 42 years old guy with two children of 16 and 10. I know where u r coming from. I also have a father. I am sure ur father is looking at u from the heaven and is as proud as ever for u. I hope u would be a proud father of ur own and do exactly as ur father did. If u give ur kids unconditionally love, selfless love and stay married for ever. u would make ur father even prouder. Please listen to the song sung by Mike and the mechanics. "In the living years" and will find some comfort. Remember ur father loved, loves and will love u forever. Untill u see him again in the heaven. just make a small heaven for your kids by giving them the proper education and love. I am honored to be able to write to u this little note.

christine
How can you miss someone so much. this poem brings back the sadness I felt about losing my dad. the 'unfathomable' feeling you have that your dad could just disappear from your life, just like that. It's a beautiful poem that speaks for anyone who loses someone dear.

One of the best poems I have ever read. It took me back to my Dad's death day. Never have I ever been hurt so hardly by any poem in much the same way as I'm with this great one. This poem has deceived me! since it easily defeated my might and made me once again CRY.

this poem made a tear or two escape my eye, its true, you'll never know when the people you love will never be there, so take the time to let them knoe how much you care for them and love them, cuz tomorrow just might be their last day, you never know.
Kassandra
Hey, I really liked your poem, it touched me, I know what it's like to loose someone like that, a really close friend, family member or heck, even a pet. I've gone through many stages in my life and I'm not even 16 yet, I'm 14. I never really had a dad, my real one left when I was only 9 days old, and I really miss him. everybody tells me how cool or mean thier father is, but I always tell them to love him because its true-you don't know what you got till it's gone. But I hope you keep on writing, I really enjoy reading yours, thank you. -Kassandra

Vicky
you will eventually learn that life is a game(or you proably already know)and you can't stop playing. Your father was taken out of the game, unfortunately he couldn't continue to play. Don't be sorry that you dropped the ball, you could always pick it up. I hope you move on and always remember that your dad will always be there for you. Even though you cannot see him, he is there.
boo

Maria

Your poem really touched me i can really understand were ur coming from I too lost my dad when i was just 5yrs and now I'm 17 and I still find myself asking ?Why? and if he been looking over me after all these years. but somthing tell me that he really never left me that living just the end and death is the start of a new world.
Michelle
Trust me, your father is very proud of you. I had the same question when my father committed suicide when I was just 12. It was always a question of whether or not I did things to meet his approval. I'm only 23 now, but I have learned that in the eyes of a father, his little girl can do no wrong. So I'm sure the same goes for his little boy.
Amanda
This poem totally made me cry. I never realized how much i love my daddy until i read this poem. He has saved my life in more ways than one! Thanx Michael!

This poem is the saddest one I have ever read. It really did touch my heart, because it reminds me everyday how much I am lucky to have a father but I seem like it doesn't matter or I don't care.

Banshee
I lose my father too and nothing in this world can ease this kind of pain. I dropped the ball too and I ask to myself: Will he still be proud of me? He taught me to never give up. he taught me to love. He told me crying wasn't sign of weakness but strenght. He taught me to fight. He taught me to love and let the others love me too. He taught me that between the darkness there is always a light. He taught me so many things. But there's a thing he never taught me so I never learned: How I am going to live without you? How I am going to fight if the strenght that kept me from falling is not here anymore?
christina

BROOKE
I WAS DEEPLY TOUCHED BY THIS SPECIFIC POEM AS FOR I ALSO LOST MY FATHER AT AGE 16 FROM HEART DISEASE. NOW I AM 26 AND STILL STRUGGLE WITH HIM NOT BEING HERE. MY FATHER WAS ALSO MY STRENGTH AND SECURITY, NOT TO MENTION MY BEST FRIEND. THIS WAS TRAUMATIZING TO ME FOR MANY YEARS AFTER, I RECALL THE PAIN STARTING TO SLOW DOWN ABOUT 2 YEARS AGO, BUT THERE ISNT A DAY THAT PASSES THAT I DONT THINK OF HIM AND WISH THAT HE WERE HERE. THANK YOU FOR SUCH AN INSPIRATIONAL POEM-I HAVE NEVER RELATED TO ANYONE LIKE I JUST DID WHILE READING THAT POEM, AS IT BROUGHT TEARS TO MY EYES, FEELING YOUR PAIN AS IT IS SO SIMILIAR TO MINE.

Crystal
I LOVED YOUR POEM, IT MADE ME AND MY GRANDMA CRY.
Mario
As the presence of those we love is as a double life, so your dad absence, in its anxious longing and sense of vacancy, is as a foretaste of death. But hope is stronger than death and God is stronger than anything. Hope and God will be with you. I lost my mother in my teen-years too!
katie

Kari
This was probably the best poem I have ever read. It definitely applies to me, my dad died almost 10 years ago. The only thing that doesn't apply to me is the "Not man, Not boy" part. I love this poem very much.
Amber
this was goo it reminds me of how i felt when i dad left to go over seas knowing that he wouldn't be there for me to make him pround to see his face the way he looks at me when i do someting good and the face makes me fell when i do something wrong. i really like this poem.
Saz
I just love the way it is kinda shown through a childs eye(Wanting to make your father proud) This makes it all the more touching.
Rian

Jessie
That is so sad . how did he die
danielle
this poem is soo sad. i know alot of people whos dad has died and they just shut-down. and this poem might make them realize that just cause someone is gone doesnt mean to can't try their bestto accomplish there wants and needs.
kerry
i voted for this poem because i know how it feels not to have dad around as mine walked out before i was born and it has been hard without him and i do miss him, i would have liked him to pick me up when i fell and tucked me in at night but that could never happena and i try my hardest to cope. your poem touched me and thankyou for sharing it with me. from kerry age 14

I fell what you feel, however, my farther didnt die, he suddenly turned his back on me one day, and doesnt even care about me or my family anymore, he just got up one day and left, it was November 2005 when he did this, and currenlty returns home and upsets us, but still, the dad i had is long gone, although i see him almost every week.

I feel your pain, kinda. I lost someone important to me too so thank you for sharing your poem its really touching. Yours truly, Sunni P.

beth
this was beautigul and it reminded me of something a friend of mine said to me when she lost her father. she said it felt like losing a light. and she wasn't sure what she should do=how it should be done. she said it felt pointless because there was noone there she wanted to make smile. no one to laugh.
Amanda

Allana

terra

Jaimie
This poem is absolutely amazing. My daddy also taught me to ride my bike and he never let me give up. He also taught me to always stand up for what I believe in. Unfortunately, he isn't really here for me any more, so the feeling of him no longer having a place on this earth hits close to home, because at times, that is how it feels.
Hannah
it was realy touching, i have never lost a memember of my family (touch wood) but reading this poem realy made me think how painful it must be

lee
omg this poem is so . sweet and it touch me deep . its just like my because i have no father there and i had to grow up by myself. facing the world alone. this person who rote it should be famous!
Jenn
This is a great poem. It touches really close to home with me too! I lost my dad in a car wreck when I was only 7. I didn't know him as well as I wished I did. I took him for granted of always being there for me no matter what. I was also really young and I think I have made my life out to be the best it can be just trying to make him proud.

I really know how you feel. My dad died when I was 9, I was the one who found him. Everyday I think about how much we missed out on. I'm 19 years old now and still miss him as much as the day he left me. He was the only one who ever really understood me and i was 100% a daddys girl. the pain never goes away but time will only bring back more memories.

Hi Michael, your poem touched my heart in a couple of ways. 1st one is for my son. she his dad used to be an alcohlic and for most of his life his dad was not there for him. up untill recently my son is now 17 and his dad finally told him how proud he was of him. my son read it this eve. and cried as well as myself. and we both are so touched by your poem. 2nd . I to this day do not know who my father is. and probly never will. I had a friend a next door neibor who was more like my father than any father I could have had. he is passes away now. he was a good man. and he taught me many things. and this was the most excellent poem i have ever read. thank you so much. and May God Bless you richly:

Beautiful and touching. The emotion and feelings expressed through your words are those of which I hope to not soon have to share but admire you for your strength and faith. Hang in there. with love
Janet
I loved this poem because I am a single mother and this poem reflects the kind of father that I want my ex to be to our daughter. But he is too busy with his life and considers our daughter an inconvenience. Please tell the author to feel lucky that he had the chance to experience what a lot of us only dream about. I grew up without a father because he died when I was two and I was hoping that my daughter would be able to have her father in her life but it doesn't seem to be in the cards.
Kirsty
Omiogd, this poem is amazing, i really feel sorry for the writer you express your feelings and it is so emotional, well done xxxx

jasmine
Micheal I enjoyed your poem it was well written and I know everyone can relate to it at one point we have all experienced a loss of aloved one. When I face hard times it seems like the one only thing I can do is write thats how I express myself.

Very well written and touching poem. I enjoyed reading it. Thanks for sharing it with us ~ Best wishes ~ Sonja
cindie
I really liked this poem. It reminds me of my father who died when I was 14. Many people don't know how lucky they are to have a father until one day, all of the sudden he's gone. Not knowing what how it happen and just being left out in the cold is an awful feeling,but know no matter how hard I cry it isn't going to bring him back. Now its been a year and a half and the pain is still here and I know its never going to go away. Even though he's not here anymore I would have loved to tell him how much I loved him before he left me. People need to charish every second with there families.
christina

I'd like to give the writer of this poem credit and respect because I know it was hard to write but also it's true to the heart.
tasha
i think this poem is sweet and it's a good way to express your emotions. by reading this you can honestly tell that it comes from the heart.
Karen
This poem is beautiful. It reminds me of a saying from Helen Keller, "That which we have once enjoyed, we can never loose. For all that we love deeply, becomes a part of us. "
tam
it's good. perhaps i feel the poem because i can relate perfectly well. my dad died four years ago and the lines '. my emotions undisciplined' and 'pls dad say you're still proud of me' got me. just like a hand went inside of me and hels my heart in a tight,firm grip.
Brittany

Cassie
This poem touched me. I showed me that life wouldn't be the same without my dad in my life. Things arent always easy and calm between us but we just need to get through them and be happy again because I dont know what I would do without my dad.
kar-lee
This poem is a very good poem.
Tamika
This poem bought back the memories of me and my dearest dad. Knowing someone all your life you would think that they would be always be here. My loving father died last year October 16, 2003 three days after my 20th b-day. I surely do miss him. Am writing and I want to cry, you expressing yourself in this poem shows that memories do last long and once you remember the good memories they will forever be in your heart even if it's bad they will linger with you. To all those who still have a father respect, love and adore them while they are alive because you don't know when it's their last like my mother always say " You don't miss the well till the water runs dry.

Courtney
I relly loved your poem maybe we can keep in to touch.
Cindy
This is a really good poem. I don't know exactly how you feel about losing your dad, but in a way I do. I haven't lost my dad, but he is in Iraq currently with the war. I haven't seen him in over a year and hardly ever get to talk to him. I miss all the things we used to do together and it makes me sad when I think about this coming May, when I graduate from High School knowing he won't be there. I don't know what I would do if I were to lose him, just him being away for so long is making me go crazy. So I can't say exactly I know how you feel, but I can say I'm always here for those who need someone to talk to.
Mary Ann
All thought my dad is still alive, this poem has touched me in the most inspiring way. Letting me know that I should appreciate him while he is still here. I really loved it.

Cathy
This peom is really good, Kinda reminded me of my dad and my grandfather.
Karen
This is a great poem Michael. it represents a father and sons deep and close attachment to one another, which is something I always hoped for my son and husband. It touches my heart to know and see how close you were to your father. My son from the time he was very little wanted his father to be close to him, and my husband has always pushed him away, and I don't know why. to this day at 17 years of age (my son) he longs to still have his father admire him and be close, and sadly to say. my husband isn't. I am forwarding your poem to my husband to let him know, that boys, and young men, long for their fathers to be proud of them.
Amanda
I really liked your poem, but I'm sorry for your lose. I still have my father and wouldn't know what I would do without him and I don't even like to think about it, I love him a lot. I'm really sorry about your dad, but you have stated it beautifully in your poem. Keep up the good work!

C
Very very nice. I never read something so beautiful. it felt as if I had a father even tho I never did.
Neomi
I love this pome! keep writing.
lauren
This peom was very touching. Although I am still a teenager I already feel as though I have lost my dad, he doesn't pay much attention to me because he has a new family and i went away with the seperated wife. He never really tought me how to catch a ball (eventhough I am a girl) I had to learn form my older sister because he did not care as much as she did. She understands what I feel because she has a different father than mine and she knows the reject as well as I do. So thank you for writing this peom because you made me feel like I had a dad still (which I still do, but is not a part of me) that could still teach me how to catch a ball and push me through life knowing that he loves me although i do not think thta will happen soon. So thank you for telling about how much you and your dad had a great relationship.
Gab
I think your poem is incredible. I read it for the first time and my eyes watered instantly. Really touching and great use of words!
kim

Aaron
This was. i can't even say it because it's too great for words. literally. My dad is in Iraq and some say that he got killed by on of the many Iraqi Hitmen. I read and whil coming to the end on the last paragraph i began to cry thinking about the whole thing. It was really great and you shouldn't stop writing. Excellent Job.
nykki
this poem is very deep, it made me cry.
Kelly
wow tears came to my eyes. beautiful poem. keep smiling :)
TINA
My father is in the hospital as I write. He was in a horrible car accident monday of last week (7 days). He has less than a 50 50 chance. He was really broken up and he's not doing good at all. I'd tell you about it but there's really no reason to upset anyone else. I've been to the hospital every day and once in a great while he opens his eyes. Yesterday. he mouthed the words "I love you" and winked at me. Then he passed out again, it took so much of his energy just to do that. Your poem hit hard and was beautiful. Thank you for letting me read it.
Kathy
God bless you Michael

rebecca
this poem brought tears to my eyes . I know exactly how he feels. i lost my father when i was 17 and 6 years later i still feel like somethings missing. so thank you.
Destiny
I love this poem-I cried when I read it. I printed it out and went to the cemetary and put it on my dad's grave, then talked to him for 1 1/2 hours. My dad was shot to death 3 months ago when he got in the line of fire in a drive by fire. If he hadnt taken that bullet, a little girl that was standing there would have been killed instead. Still, when I saw my dad's body on that sidewalk, I felt like a part of me had died along with him. I loved my dad so much. I turned 14 last month, and I know my daddy was there, smiling at me as I blew out my candles, as he had done every birthday before that.
taryn
i think it really relates to me in such a way it makes me want to cry as, i look back i can see all the special times i had and all the time my parents were by my side, what else could you ever want. i give this 10 out of 10
patricia
i would love to share with you that i am a "daddys girl" and reading that poem made me think of what it could be like losing him. i picked up the phone to call him @ 5 am just to say i loved him. i am sorry michael for your loss but one day . you too will see your father again@ his best. may god always be with you. thank you for sharing your poem
Cornelia
You explain the rights of life and the way of lose. You lose the ones that mean everything to you the fastest. The poem is really sweet I'm glad that I got the chance to read it.

susan
I truly felt your loss in this poem.
Xryyl
oh. my. GOD! this poem was so touching, so deep and heartfelt, believe me if I weren't at school i would truly cry. This poem is one of very few to have brought a tear to my eye. It means a lot to look up and try to make your parents proud. I know but I am one of very many who did not succeed and my father left us all. If he could only read this.
ashley
Poems like this make me want to get closer to my dad. I hope that one day you will find the peace within yourself to help with your loss. Much luck and love.

My dad has gone to war & I haven't seen him for about a year,but i know i will see him again one day. If only other people could just feel what the poem is about they would understand better. When I read this poem i cried my eyes & I still am. Its so touching. Keep up the good work that poem was awesome
Xia
I just love it, its so beautiful and great. I love it so much. There's kind of no other words to say but, I love the way you wrote it along your life I love the whole ball catching, knees skinned from the bike thing. I love it, its wonderful

Jen
This is a beautiful poem. Tears were welling up in my eyes. I am so sorry to hear about your dad, and I know that you'll always carry around the memory of him with you. I think now, more than ever, you should stand tall and shine bright, because that's your dad up there, encouraging you not to give up, and looking down with admiration.

It was a great poem so of it really matched with my dad. I felt like i did'nt wanna go on either and i am scared to sleep. And i feel very torn in two. And i just lost my dad 2 days ago and its the most terriable thing that happend to lost a parent like that so fast when i was just with him 3 days ago and then next he was gone. And i miss him like crazy. And i don't even like doing anything ever again. Or celebrateing the holidays. And all my friends and my mom says it will get better but it will take awhile and now my dad has his wish that his family came back together threw his death he wanted when he was alive but he did'nt get to see it. And now he has got his wish and i am happy for that. And i love your poem and i printed it out thank you and sorry your loss. I know how it feels now. And its alot of misery and even anger but you hang in there and i will too. But its gonna take awhile.

Thats the most beautiful poem I've ever read.
Stefan
I had this poem read out by the priest at my father's funeral on 14/2/02. He described the poem as 'remarkable'. It certainly is.
cheri
I, a girl at age 13 write and read poetry and this is the best I have heard so far. My parents are divorced and my brother gets all of the attention. I try to show him up and try not to mess up a lot but I always seem to "drop the ball"
andrew
this poem did male me cry - such touching words
Ryan
I think the poem is really great. My father past away almost a year ago. Now my life is like the poem, I have dropped the ball and my life is wrecked. I look at the poem as a sign that he is hearing my cry.
Kimmy
I am sorry to hear about your father. I hope writing this poem helped you get some of your emotions out. I find writing often helps me feel better. I think I can sorta relate to it to. I have a wonderful stepfather, but my real dad, well lets just say he isn't quite up to speed. I dont see or talk to him cept for maby once a year. Not even that. It makes me sad sometimes. Anyways, I am sorry for your loss. Even thow it wasn't recent, I no it still hurts.
Alicia
I read this poem and it so totally shocked me the poem is so beautiful.
Kayleigh
This poem really brought back memories for me. Thank you! I too sometimes feel that I can't go on anymore and I also get sceard. I lost my dad a couple of years ago and I know just what you are going through. The whole world doesn't stop when someone dies it just changes dramatically. I know it is hard but life, to me, is one big challenge. Do not give up, lift your head up high and make your dad proud! We can all do it if we try.
Lisa
This is a wonderful poem. My mother passed when I was 20 I am now 22 and it still feels like she passed just yesterday. Those words say a lot of how I feel. Thank you, I don't feel so alone.
priscilla
like your pome it was nice. I hope that you write some more pomes.

darcy
this poem almost made me cry.
Stacie
Michael, Your poem was incredibly beautiful. I am lucky enough to still have my here with me. Both of them have been sick for a couple of years. I have been "daddy's little girl" since I can remember and honestly at 27 I still am. I can not imagine my life without him. He is the only man that has ever and will ever love me unconditionally. I have been trying to be realistic lately. My father is 70 and is not in good health so I have been trying to prepare myself for what i know will be the saddest day of my life. I would like to tell you how much I admire you, for your strength and courage. Thank you for touching my life today. May the Lord always be with you and know that your dad will always be your guardian angel.
Katie
i really like this poem altho my dad is not dead.it seems that he doesnt care 4 me ne more and he used 2 b my best friend and it feels like hes gone.all he does now is yell..i can relate to this poem except 4 the dieing part.and im very sry 2 hear about ur dad.

Cait
I loved it it brought tears to my eyes It reminded me of someone I once knew and loved.
Michelle
I have no comments except that I feel sorry for you since I went through almost the same thing. My dad didn't die but in a way he did. He made us leave for he was bad and he didn't see what he was doing. I don't know where he is now.dead or alive..but I still feel him like you do your father.
Tracy
this poem could not say it any better thats how i feel about my dad he was the one i looked to i wanted to be him when i grew up but he passed away when i was 12 and your poem has said everything that i felt when he was taken from me i love your poem
Michelle
This poem is Amazing! You did a wonderful job on this and i know for a fact that your dad is so proud of you.
amanda
this is very nice. I would give this to my dad if he was here but he ran away so this is like something comeing frome an angels heart.It is so good
AggsAngel
Hey Michael Reading your poem made me remember how hard it is to forget or try at least to get over the pain of loosing a loved one.
Chris
This poem was a joy to read. You don't get a chance to read such a heartfelt poem. And I wish I could write like that. Congrats Michael.
Sara
my father is dead also, but not in the same way, and i only wish i knew what i did wrong.
Katrina

Leonie
Michael, thank you! My dad died a couple of months ago, and I couldn't cry, cause he would have been dissapointed in me, I croped up feelings which I should have let go the day he died, and your poem brought tears to my eyes, I've read your poem each day for the last week, and finally, the dams broke, and I could cry for the lost of my daddy. Thank you for helping me to come to terms with the hero I had lost.

GINA
Great Poem, it brought tears to my eyes and that is hard to do. you are a awsome poet.
Sharon
This poem touched my heart. I made a copy for my boyfriend whose father just passed away a month ago, and I know this will touch his heart. I just wrote a poem myself for his father, and I know it isn't easy to cope with the pain. But your father and God will give you the strength you need. My heart and condolences goes out to you and your family.

GLORIA
I would like to say I am a very sentimental person, and I have not seen my Dad for almost 3yrs. I made a one mistake, One stupid mistake and It took my only best friend the only one that I see as my hero to say I am no longer he's daughter. I cry for no reason sometimes mad and sometimes because It hurst. I pray to God he'll be back some day.
Hannah
very very touching - I'm so sorry about your loss.

There is a certain litterary profoundness to this poem, rendered by how genuine and heartfelt it is. Thank you.

Quinita

This was the first ever poem that brought tears to my eyes. My father is always away, his job makes him travel and I usually see him every other MONTH. I loved your poem and home someday I will be as accomplished as you are at writing touching poetry.

Sharon
The poem made me cry for the friend I recently lost in January 2001. He was the father of two boys that he adored. He was such a wonderful father. I am sorry for your pain and will pray for you.

Theresa
Hello Michael, I loved your poem about your dad it was sad but it was cool to it shows everybody how you feel about your dad when people read it. was you close to your dad.
Shelie
Very touching, i think to often in life we take to much for granted and it's not until it's to late that we realise. After reading this i went outside and gave my dad a big hug and told him that i loved him. We never know when it could be our last.
Deana
I believe that this poem really speaks to people who have lost a loved one. And it helps them to realize that it is ok to cry.
Courtney
this is probley one of the best poems i have seen on this site, it made me cry soooo much, this would be my exact words if my father were dead.

honni
Good poems!I missed my daddy so much, i dream about my dad in my dream!
Pocahontas
I really loved your poem and I feel your pain. I wish I could say that my dad did all those things for me but he didn't. My father may not be dead but it feels like he is. You should be proud that your father was there for you when he was here. I'm sure he's smiling down on you from heaven and he loves you.
bekka

molly
thanks Michael for such a touching poem. I often wonder if my dad would be proud of me, whether he would still love me. I miss him heaps now that he isn't there to pick me up when I'm down. Something that brings tears to my eyes.
CHARLOTTE
I HAVENT LOST MY DAD, BUT IT MADE ME THINK OF WHAT IT WOULD BE LIKE IF I DID. aND IT MADE ME CRY.
Belle
This poem hit home! My father is still alive and he's the most important person in my life. I grew up with only a father to guide me all those struggling years of my childhood as well as the critical stage of my adult life. Just the thought of what he has done would bring tears to my eyes. This is truly a poignant piece, a fitting tribute to a father dearly loved. You know Michael, you are a poet with great heart and I immensely enjoy reading your poems. You are oozing with talent. And you write poems that draw and captivate the reader's heart and emotions. Keep writing 'em!

Adina

kevin
touching
Lindsay
You're poem is SO great! I love how you can express yourself in your time of sorrow. This poem is really wonderful!
John
I never had a father so I never knew what it was like to share that kind of relationship - but reading your poem, there was a sense of extreme nostalgia... and jealousy also. I never got the chance to know what it was like to have a father but I do know what it's like without one. It's a beautiful poem that reflects a relationship and bond that I've yet to discover... I couldn't help but cry.
Amanda
I thought that this poem was beautiful actually. It was sad enough to almost make me cry. I wouldn't mind reading another.
sarah
it was so cool and it makes me thimk of the times i've had with my father when i was young!!!!!!!
Jason
Hi Micheal, I am a fellow writer myself with all original Poems and stories. But, I'm not here to put your Poems down...in fact I think they are fantastic. and I am sorry to hear about your father...I know what it's like to lose a loved one so close to your heart. Please feel free to take a look a my Web-Site and sign my guestbook. I would really like your opinion from one Poet to another. http://www.VipersPoetry.homestead. com/intropage.html.

Tara
THIS POEM IS REALLY TOUCHING....
Debra
Hello Michael, I loved your poem. This past May, on the 27th, I lost my dad. I lost my best friend. I cannot grasp, ingest the fact that indeed he is gone. He was my angel here on earth. I just loved and adored him. I can't remember have having one bad word said between us. There was always a mutual respect there. My mom told me that when I was very little I couldn't wait to grow up so I could marry him. He was always bigger than life to me. Thank you for writing such a wonderful poem. There are moments, hours, days.... when the pain of his absence is so big, so profound, I feel as if I'm going mad. I just can't believe that I can't talk to him anymore. Just wanted you to know that your poem meant alot to me and that I "voted" on it.
rachel
this poem mad me cry .
Lacy
