This is a poem about the impact my dad had on me before his death by leukemia four years ago.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems - Poems about Death

Daddy's Little Girl
If I had my life to do over,
I'd have chosen you to be my dad
once more.
Even if it meant losing you again,
It's worth all the tears in the
world.
You were my sunshine when skies
were gray.
I loved you and honored you;
You took all my tears away.
I was happy to be with you,
Proud to be your little girl.
Sometimes we would argue,
But to me you meant the world.
Your love was always pure;
You treated me as your own.
Your time seemed all too short and
I feel so alone.
What can I take from this?
My heart is completely crushed.
But nothing loved is ever lost -
And you are loved so much.

    I just lost my father yesterday at the age of 54 years old. My heart is breaking because I am and always will be "Daddy's girl" but now he is no longer on this earth in body. This poem just hit dead on what I feel right now. I love my father so much and miss him and am hurting so bad right now, but I will always love him and be proud of the way he raised me.

    I loved it. I am 17 and I lost my dad in a car accident on October 14, 2005. He was my best friend for years and I was completely torn apart when he passed away. When my father died i really felt like nothing in life mattered anymore and all i wanted to do was give up. And i did give up for a little while. But it poems like this that help me through my hard times. It really helps to just think that he passed for a reason and i will see him again someday! Thanks for the Help!
