Words of Sympathy for Those Who Have Lost a Parent
Long Distance II by Tony Harrison
Though my mother was already two years dead, Dad kept her slippers warming by the gas, put hot water bottles her side of the bed, and still went to renew her transport pass.
My Mother on Her Sickbed by Yehuda Amichai
My mother on her sickbed with the lightness and hollowness of a person, Who has already said goodbye at an airport, In the beautiful and quiet area, Between parting and takeoff.
My Mothers Hair by Nguyen Quang Thieu
One of your hairs fell out last night: A piece of your life was gone without a sound. I know a difficult day is coming, My heart, pierced, utters a quiet cry.
A Child's Grief by M.S. Lowndes
Lord you care so much, For the tears of a hurting child, Who has felt the grief of tragedy, Now no longer wears a smile.
The Ninth Pallbearer by Dale E. Harmon
It was so sad, With a tear in every eye, To see this little lad, We had all came to say goodbye, The day they buried his Dad.

I need to publish this poem, For all the world to read, I know there are many out there, Who feel this kind of grief.

It begins with the smaller things, To forget a word here, Lose something there...
Gone Fishin by Pamela I. Campbell
Her Head Stone reads Minnie Robinson Kyle, December 12, 1923 - March 29, 2004. It's that dash in the middle that has always fascinated me, even as a young adult I would look at it and wonder how a person's life could be summed up in that tiny symbol. That symbol representing an entire life.
I Miss You Daddy! by Mary A. Henry
Dear God, I need to know why did you take him above? His name is James Royce Henry, He is someone that I loved. He was my Daddy, I was his little girl.
A Father but Not a Dad by Bethany M. Thomas
I'm sorry you missed out when I went to school for the 1st time, And you didn't have me tell you that you were all mine, I'm sorry you weren't there to take me to the mall, And you weren't there to tell me I have to stand tall,
I Still Miss You by Damaris Calderon
It's been some time, since you've been gone, I thought by now, I would be strong, I think of you, and shed my tears, I wonder who, will still my fears.
My Father by Kristi E. Millikan
He was diagnosed with cancer and given six months to two years, though we never saw him cry we all saw the tears.
Goodbye by Tammy Marie Denue
I always took for granted, what I thought I'd never lose. Because I never thought it would happen, until I heard the dreaded news.
