My Father, My Father - Poem by Dakota Ellerton

My father, my father,
I love he,
my father, my father,
made me see,
how beautiful this world really can be.
My father, my father,
said to me,
my daughter my daughter,
come see me,
I wont be around forever, and i have things that must be.
My father, my father,
dont die on me.

[I wrote this while my father was in the hospital, I'm sorry to say he never got to leave. R.I.P October 7,08.]

    This is a beautiful poem expressing the love of a teen aged daughter for her father who is ill, lying on a hospital bed. The feelings are tender and the emotion deep.
