Daddy's Girl


You were ripped away just to soon,
Worst than a tycoon.
I felt like a hollow shell of my original self,
To comfort me, all I have is a lonely picture on a shelf.

Myself, I save,
is to visit your grave.
Not even the darkest days,
will stop me from coming your way.

You were took at fifty-two.
Too young, you never knew.
Too much for me to handle at twelve.
Forever in memory, your pictures are on my shelves.

June 19,2012
-For my mother Dawn Lochridge Hardin

    This was a lovely poem. A fathers cherished love must be very special, I wish you had the chance to know your grandfather. (Report) Reply

    This is so sad and I can most definitely relate. I am the youngest of four girls and my Dad passed when he was only 49. I however was 21 so I was lucky to have a little more time with mine than your mom did with hers. Either way though it is far too young an age for a father to be taken from his family. Love your wonderful and emotional poem! (Report) Reply

    This is a very heartfelt poem. It's good to remember your grandparents by honoring their memory, through poems or other narrative forms. This poem has a nice rhythm and I like it.

    Man, that's deep. It is admirable how much you loved your father. No doubt, he loved you just as much. Thank you for sharing! (Report) Reply
