To Dad

To Dad

A Poem by JanieB

GOD SAW YOU GETTING TIRED

AND A CURE WAS NOT TO BE

SO HE PUT HIS ARMS AROUND YOU

AND WHISPERED “COME TO ME”

 

WITH TEARFUL EYES I WATCHED

AND SAW YOU PASS AWAY

ALTHOUGH MY ARMS WERE ROUND YOU

I COULD NOT MAKE YOU STAY

 

A GOLDEN HEART STOPPED BEATING

AND NOW YOU’RE LAID TO REST

GOD BROKE MY HEART TO PROVE TO ME

HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST!

Oh this is so sad. I'm really sorry you lost your Father.
This however is so true. God only does take his believers to heaven. He's in amazing place for sure :)
Hope your okay!

Sentimental, and sweet epitaph to your father

Wow, this is amazing! I think this is my favourite of what I've read of yours so far. :D
I can definitely identify with this, as my grandmother was taken in almost the same way. It's tragic, but when you think of what they gain from departing this earth, it's almost a happy thing. The rhyme in this was wonderful, not forced or anything. And it flowed majestically.
Great job!

I'm so mad at my dad sadly I could not completely feel the beauty of this poem. But I did like the flow and rhymes. Keep writing.
