1) If good things

Really happen to good people

Why did death steal away

Someone from me, so special

If Karma really comes around

Why did fate deal me this blow

Your death has stopped

My whole life’s flow

What did I do, to be pushed

Into the gallows of misery

I just can’t understand why

You were taken away from me

I miss you


2) Life is a fruit

To be squeezed to its last drop

To love and to be loved

There is no reason to stop

Life is a dessert

To be cherished all the way

I realized all of this

Only after you passed away

There is no time to waste

In a life so sweet and savory

It is a regret that it took

Your death to teach this to me

I miss you


3) I wanted you to see

My progress every year

But that isn’t possible

Now that you aren’t here

I wanted you to witness

My growth and prosperity

But now that you are away

That isn’t going to be

I wanted you to be a part

Of everything I chose to do

But now that you are gone

I can do nothing but miss you


4) I think of you

With every single heart beat

Getting you out of my head

Is going to be a tough feat

I remember you

Every time I take a breath

That’s how much I miss you

Dear dad, after your death

I reflect on your memories

Every time I blink me eye

This is the way it’s going to be

Until the day I die


5) The worst shock

The hardest experience

A cruel life lesson

The harshest occurrence

The most horrible event

Your death has been

The toughest moment

That I’ve ever seen

A bag of tears and grief

Is what I have been reduced to

You don’t know much

I have been missing you


6) Sometimes I sit on the staircase

Over which you carried me

Sometime I saunter in the patio

Where we talked languidly

Sometimes I use your study

Just to inhale your fragrance

Sometimes I wear your clothes

And cry in abundance

Sometime I watch TV

Even if it blurts white noise

Imagining you next to me

Is enough to make me rejoice

Dear dad, I think of you

Throughout the whole day

I’ve missed you so much

I can’t even begin to say


7) Dad…

Every single person

Is trying to replace

Love and care in my life

To cover for a sad phase

Everyone around me

Is helping and being nice

Making efforts to replace

A father’s true advice

They have good intentions

To help me ease my pain

But they don’t know how it feels

To never see you again

I miss you


8) I wish I hadn’t

Fought with you every day

I wish I didn’t

Behave in malicious ways

What I should’ve thought

And done instead

Is pay attention

To what you had said

But I was too busy

Everything was about me

I wish that I was

Not so selfish, daddy

I miss you


9) The best dad in the world

Has departed to Heaven

It seems God loved him too

I wasn’t the only one

If only I had spent

Some more time with him

I would’ve tried to satisfy

Myself to the brim

If only I had known

Of his death in advance

To hug him and be by his side

I wouldn’t have missed a single chance

I miss you


10) Your memories

Are all that I’ve got

If not for them

I would rot

Your blessings

Are all that I need

For a life like yours

I want to lead

You are all

That I had

You were the

Bestest dad

Sad goodbye funeral poem for dad father

11) The journey of my life

Has suddenly transgressed

It feels like everything

Has abruptly regressed

All the happiness in my life

Has gone down to the pits

All moments of joy

Have broken down to bits

That path of my destiny

Has become a dead end

Because I lost a dad

Who was also my best friend

I miss you


12) Dad…

It seems surreal

That you have gone away

You were right here

Until yesterday

It seems bizarre

How life can be so fickle

Your death to me

Is heartbreakingly unreal

I miss you


13) Death is a strange thing

It teaches you the worst

And how to bear pain

When your insides burst

When you passed away

I experienced much more

Pain reverberated

From my very core

I still feel miserable

When I think of you now

Dad, the pain off your loss

I just can’t stow


14) Death can’t do us apart

Is a wedding vow

But it is something that

I want to say to you right now

Nothing can come between us

No matter how far you are

You will always be with me

In the form of a bright star

Even though you will be

Far for me to lay hands on

From my heart you will

Never ever be gone

I miss you


15) Dad…

As I live through the nightmare

That my life has become

The way it has gone sour

Straight from being awesome

As I live though the torture

Of living life alone

And spend each day and night

Feeling so lost and worn

I pray to God to give me

Strength to bear your absence

So that I can make meaning

Of my existence

I miss you


16) Flowers on the gravestone

A bejeweled photo frame

On my heart and my body

Your tattooed name

None of this is enough

To say how badly I miss you

Your abrupt absence in my life

Has left me without a clue

I miss you


17) If only I could build

A time machine

To erase everything

That I have seen

I would turn time back

To the moment when

You were right here

Life was in absolute zen

While I rant about this

My mind wakes up to reality

The grief of your dawn

Painfully dawns upon me

Dad, just thinking about you

I start to suffocate

After all, you were my father

And my best mate


18) Dad…

The little girl in me

Misses you too much

Your pat on her back

And your magical touch

The teenage diva in me

Misses your counsel

The way you dealt with her

When she was a rebel

And the adult woman in me

Misses you most

Because she has lost

Her life’s pillar post


19) I never knew that

A girl’s heart could hurt so bad

So painfully, so bitterly

When she’s lost her dad

I also never knew that

Along with tears manifold

So much grief and sadness

A girl’s eyes could hold

It is only after your death

That I have understood unwillingly

The real meanings of

Pain, sadness and melancholy

I miss you


20) When it rains

I know it’s you crying

When it thunders

I know you are shaking

When lightning strikes

I know you are angry

When wind blows

I know you’re comforting me

When a hurricane comes

I know you’re worried sick

When there’s a rainbow

You help me to tick

Every twist and turn

Of Nature speaks of you

Without you, my life

Like dark skies, is dull and blue

I miss you

Poem in dad's memory after death

21) There are some moments

When I experience deja vu

Especially when I am

Thinking only of you

I get transported

In the memories of the past

After which sadness takes over

Why those good times didn’t last

Since your death, I found

My reveries to be

The best place to hide

Where it’s just you and me

I miss you


22) Dad…

There are spots in the house

That scream of your memory

There are corners and nooks

That want you back badly

The neighborhood has lost

A bit of its character

The good vibes of the home too

Are gone forever

The patio and the backyard

Miss your barbecue

Everyone in this house

Is lonely without you

We miss you


23) My life’s pillar

Its very foundation

Has been taken away from me

Leaving me in desperation

The framework of my life

Its very blueprint and outline

Has gone away forever

Making my life far from fine

All that I can do now

Is to learn to cope

And just survive

On memories and hope

I miss you dad


24) I know what Heaven looks like

It must be fantastic

For it has a new resident

Who is so terrific

It must be all happy up there

With everything pristine

The most beautiful place

That anyone has ever seen

All this because it has

My amazing father

Without whom the Heavens

Could be this way, never


25) It’s tough to contain the pain

Over the death of the one you adore

There are days when I miss you

And I just can’t bear it anymore

There are days when I need you

And then there are days when I just quit

Without you, I’ve realized

I can’t push through even a bit

Dad, I beg you

Please come back from Heaven

Without you my life will

Collapse and come undone
