TearS 4 My FatheR (FrOm Another View)

by ♥•oOo Nikki oOo•♥©   Oct 22, 2004

I Saw Him Lying In The Casket Peacefully Asleep

And My Ears Drowned In The Sounds Of My Family Members Weep

My Life Is At a Stand Still I Was In Ultimate Disarray

How Can You Tell A Little Girl Her Father Died Today

I Saw So Much Depression In My Family Members Eyes

I Heard Their Pain In The Essence Of Their Cry's

I Looked Away From The Present I Wanted To Stay Strong

But Deep In My Heart I Was Hurting All Along

I Didn't Want Anyone To Hear Or See My Pain

I Didn't Want Anyone To Know Of The Hurt That Knows My Name

I Use To See People Cry And Wonder Why They Even Bother

But These Tears i Cry Today,These Tears Are 4 My Father

He Was Raised In A House-Hold Where Men Just Didn't Cry

They Weren't Raised To Let a Tear Fall Out Their Eye

It Was a Horrid Way 2 Be Raised Without Emotion

But 2 His Family He Showed Ultimate Devotion

4 All The Times He Wanted To Just Cry

4 All The Times He Wanted To Let The Pain Fall Out His Eye

I'm Going To Cry Till My Eyes Are Out Of Tears

I'm Going 2 Cry 4 How My Father Felt All Those Years

The Pain In My Tears Are More Than Just Salty Water

These Tears Are For The Man i Once Knew As My Father

    I have to comment because this was amazing! I too lost my father at an early age but my family didn't really care.... Parents divorced. I was all he had left and I had moved away with my mom to another state .... It had been 8 years since I last saw him,on the day he died which was in 2002. lovely poem, enjoyed it very much!!!

    That was so full of emotion, it was jsut amasing! It was so detailed and sad i almost cried, I hope this isn't a true story, cause that would be horrible! You've got talent though, wow.
