Goodbye Daddy

Poem By Craig Piercy

He closed his eyes and drifted away
I knew then all I could do was pray

Goodbye daddy goodbye
My daddy’s gone
I feel its wrong
Goodbye daddy goodbye

Sleep daddy sleep
As I lay next to him I began to weep
You taught me so much yet I’ve never seen you cry

Goodnight daddy goodnight
I see your soul begin to fly up into the sky
And tears flow down my cheeks as I breakdown and cry

Goodbye daddy goodbye
My daddy’s gone
I feel its all wrong
Goodbye daddy goodbye

So long daddy
I will make you proud
And look for you in the soft white clouds
For you will be there
It just seems so unfair

Comments about Goodbye Daddy

It was so full of heart. So full of hurt and passion, I have to say it's one of my favourite poems, where do you get your inspiration?
A tribute with a poignancy that one can relate..... May you always remember him thus and when you do let the memories wipe the tear drops from a misty eye.-Baru Gobira

Wake up, Daddy, wake up
Why do you sleep, Daddy?
You lie there so still
Come back, come back, Daddy

You Walked Away!

The day you walked away
I watched you leave
Begging you to stay
Instead, you left me to grieve

Taking A Stand

When things around you change you realize you must rearrange
Why do others find this strange?

A Lost Soul

When you wander around looking for that thing that's missing
It's your soul that's missing

That heartbeat, feeling of retreating
