Have you seen my Daddy?

Have you seen my Daddy?

A Poem by Kiera Scanlon

Have you seen my Daddy?

I don't know where he's gone

Sometimes it hurts so much

I can't seem to carry on.



The thing I hate the most, 

Is that people think I'm so strong,

But actually it just seems that way, 

Because I can't accept that you are gone!



You said that you would always be there,

With all your love and care,

But daddy, I can’t find you,

You suddenly just aren't there.



Our tears and hurt consume us,

As we lose you in our lives

But we have such happy memories,

Behind these teary eyes



At the end it was a battle, 

One you weren't to win,

A fight against a demon, 

No choice but to give in,



Your battle is now over,

No more tears flowing down your cheek,

No more pain, no more suffering, 

No longer feeling you’re weak.



The years don't make it easier, 

They said the pain would go,

It seems I've just got better, 

At not letting my feelings show,



Although you will not be here

To walk me down the aisle,

When that day comes, I know

You will be by my side with a smile.



Have you seen my Daddy?

I don't know where he's gone

This is a heartfelt write. It truly does echo your hurt and loneliness and your love for something that transcends just a father daughter relationship but a platform on which every fundamental of life to you made sense. I too relate with this piece as I have not lost my father to drugs but lost him to the addiction of drugs for sure. You make my heart shiver and make me feel pain again and that is a gift many writers don't possess. Keep writing.

This piece is embarrassing, honestly...im not trolling you...

You have your puppies hanging out In your profile pic and you're complaining about not having your father around? Its almost like you're begging to be the featured attraction at pledge week for a serority .

Every dude on here is going to try and play you now. Learn how to write from your soul. Use a profile pic of a dead tree or a little down syndrome girl and if you really love to write, I'll take you seriously.

The writing it self is marginal and has promise because I think and feel like it comes from a real place in your heart. Develope that, just don't be a chump

Kiera, You speak of your dad's fight against a demon, and I can only speculate as to what that might have been (although I imagine it may have been a deadly illness...I'm so sorry for your loss) but I can assure you that as you grow older you'll realize that your coping with that loss WAS your strength coming to bear. I lost my dad at 14 but it wasn't until I was much older that I realized the strength it took me to make it through that time. Realizing your own strength is called maturity. You've arrived at that point...that is how I see it. Writing it out and sharing with us is a cathartic release, an attempt to lighten your load of grief. This is a beautiful tribute to him and the love still held for him, forever. Thank you for the read request. take care...dan

Well executed... poignant!

Forced to be an adult marks a child for life, regardless of the reason. Great subject matter to write about, there are thousands of such stories out there that should be brought to light as you have successfully done with this poem. Bravo! :~)

This is such a sad but beautiful poem. It is a mixture of love and grief and sadness and loss. You managed to convey the deep emotions in this poem so... poetically.

Intricately beautiful and terribly sad. I'm so impressed by this. I'll never pretend to know much about poetry, but I'm moved by this deeply. Well done.
