I looked at where you always park your car in the evening
I found nothing there but emptiness and your grave too
I waited to see you sound your horn from a distance
Hoping I would run as usual to open the gate for you
I stayed out in the cold hoping to catch a glimpse of you, dad
But there I stood; waiting and hoping like every little lad
You said your love would last more than the summer, now I’m sad
I want to hear you call my name from afar for that massage
I want to hear the gist and life’s lessons you gave many times over
I just want to lie next to you and watch your heart beat again
Life had so much meaning with you in it, no doubt, dad
And seeing you not being in it anymore, I couldn’t help but wonder
Life sometimes feels like a dream and disappears when you wake up
Now I am seeking out reality amidst the dream I had with you, Papa


Thank you for your time.


My pen doesn’t bleed, it speaks, with speed and ease.

Still me,

My tongue is like the pen of a ready writer.

I felt with you with brother, it wasn't a pleasant experience losing one beloved. No man could take the place of one's father or mother in this life. I know how you felt brother, I pray God in his infinite mercy grant him everlasting peace in his journey to the other world. This poem is so emotional that I almost burst into tears brother.

Thank you so much for this lovely comment. Yes, no one can replace our loved ones. They can only try but they can never come close. The bond and the special moments shared would always be there.

Thank you for being here, it means a lot.

Now I am still trying to figure out if this is love poem right

Maybe you would do well by actually reading it because you can't read it and not know what the theme of the poem is.
