The poem(s) are below...



A daughter silent grieving 
struggles through her day,
A father so heart broken he 
can't begin to say,
Shall all there days be filled 
with pain,
And yet they never see,
That all the sorrow only speeds 
what shouldn't have to be,
I miss her so with all my heart, 
my prayers are all for you,
Please tell me that you love 
And I shall tell you too,
My one true wish shall always 
be,that you shall one day see,
My love for you endearing, and 
hope it sets us free,
To have the times that we once 
had would fill my heart with 
To feel your love so warmly, as 
you walk by my side.

    Nicely done James! Love and loss can cause immense heartache when they go hand in hand. It's never easy for those who remain but strength must be found.
