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.

    Forever in memory, your pictures are on my shelves.
    I can feel what it is to handle at young age.

    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.
