Father....Who Are You?


I feel sorry to myself that …..
I have no memory of playing with you as my father
I did not have a chance to feel your hug... your love as my father;

It’s so tragic that I can’t even remember
How you look like… how you were as my father

When my friends talking about their fathers
It’s so sad that I have nothing to share about you
I know your full name,
But I don’t know who you are as a man… as my father;

Father.....who are you?

    I can relate to this poem so much. My dad sied when i was six years old and i only have few memories to cling onto and this poem brought tears to my eyes. It feels like nobody understands whats its like not to have a dad. Ilove this poem i akm going to put it into my room. I have never felt so much emotion in just reading one poem. you are very talented

    This is very sad Mary. I'm afraid there are many people who find themselves in this position (through no fault of their own) . You've written it beautifully. Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    that's the subject I had to write a poem about
    now I have a nice sample how one could write about the feeling of searching the Parental emotion
    I hope I can write that poem and fprward it to you to say your opinion about it (Report) Reply

To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
