Ur Father

Ur Father

I know
Its hard to lose
A part of u

Ur spirit
Grew on him
So young

That u tried to
Define a lesson
In his eyes

Everyday he watch u
Like a flower
& sees ur smiles

Now he’s in the skies
Still watching u
Holding on so dear

But I don’t know what’s
Like to lose someone
Who’s been part of u

Through all the years
Yet he held u as a
Beautiful child

& I’m sorry
To hear that
He move on

To the clouds
Where the lord opens
The golden door

& let him in
Still he wants u
To stay strong & faithful

Always keep ur memories
At heart—
Ur father is part of u

& ur a part of him
He loves u dearly

Very touching Kai. Brings forth a lot of emotion. I like the line "he watched you like a flower..." Your poetry and your heart are blessings to all of us. Fathers are so very special. Thank you for sharing this.
