this is a poem that my friend logan asked to write for him cause his dad died a month ago..
So this is my original work just his feelings that i made a poem about.


It’s so sad when I have to think your not here.
I remember all the fun times, they still are so clear.
I didn’t want this to happen, now your so far away.
But I know your not suffering from any hurtful thing.
The words still linger… I remember when you said,
“hey bud how are you, lots of love dad.”

All I have left now is pictures and memories from the past.
I will always love you, and you will never be forgotten.
My honor and respect are always going to be.
R.I.P, I love you dad.
