Topic: A poem for my dad on father's day

I was struggling with today, the first father's day since my dad passed away in February. I didn't know what to do. Unfortunately, i'm stuck on call all day for my job and had to get up at 3am this morning to support our systems (I work in IT). So i found a few extra minutes and wrote this about him. I feel good about it. I love you, Dad.

AND happy fathers day to all the rest of you dads out there, and those of your who have lost your dads too....may this day not suck too much.

Thanks for letting me share...maybe someday I will put some music to this...

I lost my Dad to CC Feb 13, 2011 at 7pm EST. I felt him take his last breath. He was 57.
I love you, Daddy.

KIM, THAT WAS AN ABSOLUTELY AWESOME TRIBUTE TO YOUR DAD. I am so sure that he is smiling on you for that one and beaming as he is also very proud of you. It is a keeper for sure. Thank you for that and perhaps you should start a collection of poems dedicated to him and write one for each Holiday. Writing helps ease the pain, I know. God Bless!

Thank you so much for your kind words, Lainy, Marion and Nancy! I'm glad I felt strong enough to write it and share it with you.

Lainy, i think that is a wonderful idea. And it would be interesting to compare the poems dependent on how far from his death i've written them to see how i'm doing (thats the geek in me, always doing research! i blame...and thank...my dad!)
