About the Poem
This poem is about the deaths of my Father and Step Father.
My Father's name was Kenneth. He died when I was 11 months old in a car wreck while going to work. I was the most important thing is his life. I never got to really say good- bye so I guess this is the way I can do that.
My Step Father was Edward. He died when I was 13 of a Heart Attack in his sleep. He gave me the imagination I now have today by challenging my mind with puzzles and crafts.
I never got the chance to say my final farewells to my Fathers so I guess this is how I did it.
In loving memory of my Father and Step- Father
A Daughter's Prayer

|Father how I miss you
every waking day
I curse the one who made you
die and go away.
I miss your warm hands
and I miss the talks we had
I miss the times when words were of no need
and hope my love you'll always see.
I wish I'd had some time to say
how I loved you so
but I never got the chance
because it was your time to go.
I want the memories back
new and happy still
yet I know I never will
if you knew how much I cared
I might not feel so sad and scared.
My Father how I miss you so
My Father I need you!
I hope you knew about my love
because its strength is always true.
