My beautiful daughter
She had to grow up too fast
One night everything changed
"Sweetie, the pain won't last."

The funeral came and went
There's a new angel in the sky
She's handled it so well
"Sweetie, you have your Mama's eyes."

Now I'm starting to worry
She's dwelling in the past
It's going to be okay one day
"Sweetie, the pain won't last."

It's been almost a year
I still hear her crying at night
I'm a helpless father
"Sweetie, it's gonna be alright."

She faces her demons
But still smiles everyday
Life knocks us down sometimes
"Sweetie, you're gonna be okay."

Hearing her laugh gives me hope
Seeing her smile gives me peace
She is her Mother's daughter
"Sweetie, someday the pain will cease."

Now it's her Senior year
Time has flown by so fast
I'm so proud of my baby girl
"Sweetie, the pain won't last."

Thank you so much! I Actually wrote this poem Senior year for my father. My mother passed away suddenly when I was 14, and it was just me and my dad. I wrote this poem thinking about the things he would say to me, and how he must feel watching his child deal with the death of her mother.

Have to take a minute to figure it out

But true pain, hurt

It's not invincible

Not immortal.

The pain won't last--

You're right.

It takes an open heart to realise these things.

You know more than you think.

Hello guys! Thank you for all the positive comments on my poem. I actually wrote this poem Senior year for my father. My mother passed away suddenly when I was 14, and it was just me and my dad. I wrote this poem thinking about the things he would say to me, and how he must feel watching his child deal with the death of her mother. I am now a Sophomore in College, and my Dad is still my best friend/ support system.
