tee
i lost my dad about 3 years ago, 3years exactly on the 13th of jan 2007. he died of a sudden heart attack. i still cry myself to sleep, i could`nt cry much at his burial time because of my mum. i felt i had to be strong for her. i feel guilty, but i dont know why? maybe because i never told my dad i loved him, my life has never been the same there is no one to run to anymore. my family is not close anymore and it seems that since i lost my dad,everything else has frozen. getting married, career, friends. i sometimes wish i was still dreaming and my dad would come back to life. i just miss him so much. will my life ever be the same? this poem has touched me so much am actually crying just reading it because it sums up all my feelings. thank you so much.
Tia
I lost my dad almost 2 yrs ago, on Feb 21st, 2006, he too died suddenly, he had a heart attack, I was 23 when he died. Your poem was so beautiful and it relates to everyone who lost their father.

Beautiful poem. My dad was 65 years old and was in a motorcycle accident this past August. He was in a trauma center for 18 days then his heart gave out & he had a heart attack. This poem is awesome & is perfect wording from a daughter to tell her dad things she didn't when he was here! This is my first Christmas without him.
brianna
Judy, This is a beautiful poem that touched me deeply. I lost my father a little over 3 yrs ago when I was only 21. This is so full of emotion and truth that as I read it I know that the tears that ran down my face are the same tears that even someone who has never dealt w/ this type of loss would cry. Thankyou
Lana

Judy, This poem truly touched my heart. I lost my father suddenly to an aneurysm this past january. I am only 28. Unfortunately, my father died 5 months before my wedding and it was a very difficult day. In addition, my husbands father died suddenly one week later while we were on our honeymoon. This poem says everything that I am feeling and I just wanted to thank you for finding and saying just the right words that I needed to hear. THANK YOU.

my Grandpa was in a car accident Dec. '05. He fought for his life for 5 months when he passed in May. This poem really hits home with me, even though he was my grandpa he was the only "father figure" in my life soI can relate, as I'm sure my ma can to (i'm making a copy for her). I want to say for the both of us this is a very beatifull poem. Thank-you for putting into words what I never would be able to.

Kelly
This poem was touching and made tears come to my eyes. I lost my Dad when I was 17. 1 month before my 18th he hada freak accicent (an ultralight crash, QLD). I hope you don't mind but I would love to put this poem on myspace site.
Angie
I was exactly 22 when my father also died of a heart attack right before Christmas. When I read the poem it touched my heart to think that someone else felt the same way I did not 2 years ago. My father was one of two people in the world I knew would love me no matter what I went through in life. The other being my mother and he was everything to my mother. We now live on with his memory being the only thing that comforts us. We live each day knowing there is no other man in the world like him and he will be missed greatly. My heart goes out to those who lost their fathers suddenly without any warning of any type. Thank you for remembering with such beautiful words.
christina

Your poem touched me in so many ways. I lost my dad almost a year ago this month and I must say your poem said everything that I was feeling inside. It's nice to know that I don't go through this alone and how I try to get through each day without my best friend.
victoria
This poem touched me very deeply. It almost seems as if these are the very words that come out of my mouth, my Dad passed away 10 months ago and it hurts so bad because we were very close and knowing that there are poems like this one makes my pain just a little easier to deal with. Thank you.
Hayley
My dad died of a heart attack when i was 18, he was only 48. Your poem is a great comfort and food for thought.
Carol
Beautiful! My dad passed on 8/1/06 at the age of 89. He was the one that everyone went to for his wisdom, strength, and help. He was always there for me until the day he died. This poem says everything I feel in my heart and soul. I couldn't have said it better. Thank you. Sincerely, Carol Phipps

Jan
My Dad died yesterday (26/06/06) and although he had had a full and happy life and I have my own children. I was still his little girl. I have been looking for a poem to read out at his funeral to say how much he means to me. I have tried to write it myself but im just feeling to 'muddled' for it to make much sense. Your Poem says exactly what I want to say. It made me cry. I hope you wont mind if I (try) to read it out at his funeral. Thank you.

Amanda
I would give this poem a 10 out of 10. I can relate to it but I lost my dad when I was 5 years old. I never understood why he had to leave me and to tell you the truth I was mad at him. I could never talk about him because I would always start to cry. I am now 17 and it still makes me cry to talk about him. Amanda
Michael
Judy, Thank you so much for this poem, I have printed it on paper with a Rainbow streaked across the paper now for the 4th time, always with your name under the title. I have used it 2 times in its original form as DAD, but have also changed it to MOM, BROTHER, UNCLE, GRANDPA, and FRIEND. I have found this to be a very comforting poem for the people that I have given it to, and once it I was suprised when I titled it FRIEND that it was read at the Funeral Service. Unfortunately, I am using it again, giving it to a long time friend who Mother passed away today, which was her last living relative of her immediate family. I will be he[ping her make arrangements in the morning. AGAIN THANK YOU FOR A VERY WELL WRITTEN POEM.
Breanna
Judy this is a wonderful poem it reminds me of my dadhe got married and his wife does not liike me because i am half white and nmy dad is under her comand and i have not seen him in a long time because she locked me out of the house and he did not even beleive me and i almost had an asthma attack and yuo know what she did so much that i can't even name them all you know what i guess i said too much but you are sooooooooooooo talented you should keep up the good work

this poem was really good and sweet i lost my dad july 2005 in a bad car wreck i miss him sososo much and was really close to him my little boy and my husband was with him they almost died to. this poem touched me
Ashley
I loved this poem simply because it reminded me so much of my daddy. He died March 11,2004. I was so close with my dad that my body shut down when I found out he had died. I still do not know what happened to my daddy. All we know is he died but we'll never know if my dad was killed or really killed himself. Thats why I don't think I'll ever have closure.

Although me dad is still alive, but life is full of the unexpected. By reading the poem, I could almost feel the pain went through by the author and wonder whether it's going to be the same for me when "the day" arrives for me and my family. Honestly sad, grievious yet beautiful and as real as a heartbeat.

Hi just wanted to express my sympathy for your loss. I think you have expressed the sorrow experienced by so many children(adult children as well)when you loose a father. It's been roughly a year and I miss my Dad so much! This poem was expressive on my sorrow and feelings and I hope that in that world up there hopefully are fathers' are rejoicing together. God Bless you.

Wow! What a beautiful, emotional poem Judy. You really have touched on so many feelings I hold dear to my dad! Thank you! My dad suddenly died of a heart attack the day after I returned from my honeymoon on 11th August 2003! I still can't believe it and feel so alone and completely lost without him. He was my angel and touched my life in so many ways. If my tears could build a pathway and my memories a lane, I would go straight up to heaven and bring him back again! I pray for all our dads in heaven x
veronica

Melissa
I lost my dad this monday 12/6/04 and this poem really touched me! He also died of a heart attack. It is amazing that one minute they are doing fine and the next minute they are asleep and never wake up! I thank God for taking him peacefully in the comfort of his home! But this has been the toughest weeks ever - although he is my step-dad he will always be the one I consider the best DAD in the world! I miss him and will tell him this poem when i am stronger.
Ashley
this poem touched me because i know how you feel, but it was my mother and wasnt so sudden. everything you said is also how i feel this is definatly a 10 out of 10
SALLY
my dad passed away in july the 17th at exactly 9:10a. m. it is really heard for me cause you see he wasnt really my real father he was a foster dad but since i was in his home since age 4 i got real close to him he would take me every where he went and he would always spoil me but i never really liked getting spoiled by him cause i could not understand why he would want to spoil me so much. i am now 18 years old and all my family is torn apart i am the only one left out of my siblings and that sucks. i love you dad!

Your poem was absolutely beautiful. I stumbled across it totally by mistake but it was like fate as it explains exactly how I feel about my Dad, who died just over 4 months ago. My Dad also died suddenly at a young age of a heart attack. I printed your poem off and read it a few days ago at a recent memorial to my Dad when we had his ashes buried at a Woodland Burial Site. It was absolutely perfect to read it and I know my Dad heard me read it like I know your Dad knows that you wrote it. xxx

I lost my father 3 years ago (I was 20 years old) to a sudden heart attack. I had no time to say goodbye to him. as a result my mother lost her mind. we have to take care of her now. or family has fell apart,all because we lost our binding thread. when I read this poem it touched my heart. I hate that anyone else has felt this pain but at the same time it did me so much good just to read it. thank you
belin

Eli
i truly love the poem, i miss my father greatly. he died when i was 13 years old and every march 14th, i go out and remember him by praying and looking at some old photos of him with my family. even 13 years later, there isn't a day that goes by when i think if my dad was alive today, he would see how much his children have grown and he knows that he has grandchildren and asks about their grandfather constantly.
megan
THIS POEM WAS VERY TOUCHING TO ME. IT REMINDED ME ALOT OF MY DAD, HE JUST PAST AWAY OF A HEART ATTACK 03/29/02. I WILL NEVER FORGET HIM AND ALL OF ARE FUN TIMES TOGETHER,your poem made that possible.
Mel
i lost my dad a week ago from a massive heart attack. He was 44. After reading your poem, you have said everything that I am feeling. I dont know what im going to do without my dad. He was everything to me, my mentor in life, my world. He was my everything. I dont know how im supposed to handle all of this. but after reading your poem, i felt as if someone out there kinda had an idea as to how i am feeling. Your poem touched me very deeply, and i can relate very much. Good on ya for having the strength to write something so sincere. I hope one day when i am dealing with it, i will also find the courage to write something for my dad. he will always be in my heart, but life seems so surreal without him here. Ppl told me that it would hit me at his funeral- but it hasnt. I guess im still living ina dream world. Were you?
lori
tears were falling as i read your poem,it was so sad ,but beautiful,it really hit home.i felt the sadness as you spoke,dads are special and thats no joke! i really did enjoy it.
Michelle
Thank you Judy. It seems I cry every day over the loss of my father, which occured 2 months ago today. When people ask about him, the words simply fail me. However, your words are mine, and I could not have possibly expressed them any better. I appreciate your words providing a voice for my grief.
Bridgette

anita
There are no words to say how beautiful you wrote that poem. It could be written especially for me and my dad who died last year.
Jessie
Your poem was great. I lost my dad, too about 7 months ago but not to natural causes. He commited suicide. I was only 15 at the time and that's a very hard thing for a teenager to have to go through. I don't think I'll ever get over it or stop blaming myself for it. This poem said things that I couln't think of how to say. Thank you.

I really like this poem because my father isn't died but i haevn't realy seen him in along time so that helps to hear a poem that sounds like what has happened. I almost cried when I read it. Beautiful.

ilost my father in august of 98. nothing has gotten any easier nor have i accepted it any more than the day they came to ask us if we recognized his wedding ring. my dad was always my hero, when the world was tearing me down, he was quickly building me back up. I know he's been gone for nearly 2 years, but still the thought of life with out him makes my body ache. i am 26 yrs old w/ 3 girls of my own, and try as i might to hold my head high and be the mom and wife i was before, i cant hide the fact that he took a big chunk of me with him when he left. your words fit my feelings so well. thank you,

My dad recently passed away, and I really understand how she feels. He was everything to me. I wasn't really his child, but he accepted me as his child. I have had a really rough life and he seemed to kiss it all away.
