About the Poem

I wrote this poem upon learning of the impending death of a man I love, and of his son's response to what he thought would happen to his father.

It was very real to me . It hit home.
I really enjoyed this poem. A couple years ago my friend Shayne's dad died of cancer. Now just this year in September he died in a car accident. He was 16 years old and one of the best people to ever walk! I want him to know that. And the poem was great! R. I. P SHAYNER I LoVE YOU
This poem really touched me and made me cry. It is simply beautiful.
very good poem just to let the little boy know that his father will always be there for him and that how much his father really loves him even though he is not here any more all the luck for the future and my full sympathy

In Shane's Eyes

Someday soon, my Dear Shane,
when you look into
the starry skies
a twinkle will beckon you;
Yes, that is your father.

And someday when I look into
your eyes so blue,
and touch your hair
of gold,
I too will see your father.

For as long as we live,
he will never leave us,
You with your star
and me
with the face
of your father
to see everyday.

Yes, Shane,
Daddy is a Star.

That was simple beautiful, it made me cry, i can relate, not becasue a father or anything has died, but my auntie died and my cousin who is 5 now, 3 at the time didnt understand, so my uncle always told him my auntie had gone to be a star, and that she was always watching over him. )
