I Miss You Daddy! – Words of Sympathy

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.

I miss him so much since he left our family.

It’s a horrible nightmare to be sticken with cancer,

There are so many questions no one can answer.

If I had one more chance, I’d hug him real tight.

I’d tell him I love him and kiss him good-bye.

This poem is not perfect it’s just how I feel.

I miss you Daddy, my pain is real.

  11. I lost my dad December 18, 2010. I am a 14 year old girl and it is so hard without having my dad in my life. I try not to think about it but it’s hard knowing he won’t be there for me. I always gave him “butterfly kisses” and we always listened to the song “Butterfly Kisses”. We said it was our song. I listen to that song at night when I miss him because it makes me feel closer to him. He was my best friend. He was always there to support me and he loved watching me play sports. I can’t hear him yell my name when I’m on the field or court ever again. I will always miss him and I know he is here with me.

  12. miss your laughter papa, your beautiful smile, the long talks we use to have, and your hugs. all of this was taken away from me.
    i pray for your soul papa, so that you may spend eternal life with our creator. I LOVE YOU PAPA.

  15. i just lost my Dad on October 31,2011. He was my Best Friend. I miss him so much. Someone please give me some advice on how to stop this pain. It hurts so much. I love You Daddy!

  16. Dad, you are my hero.. Its been 2 months since you passed away.. days are passing .. everyday before going to sleep I’m praying to god and begging him that when I wake up the next day I should realise that what all happened for the last two months should be a night mare.. and daddy u should be with me .. I wish this was a night mare.. It’s been almost 2 months I’m praying god.. but I’m not getting what I want.. I will wait for ever .. but one day I wish this entire life would become a night mare and I will get up in the morning by wishing you( my daddy) good morning and start my day…daddy life is like hell without you.. you are so good that you have arranged everything for us.. but what can we do with all this without you.. you are my life.. you are our life.. how can we have a life without life( you)..missing you daddy… god has taken away you and separated us.. I had trust on god.. but after losing you I lost hope in god and in my life also .. its horrible to think my life without you.. you are the best thing happened to me ever.. daddy I wish I will be with you some day.. I love you daddy I love u so much…

  17. Dadddy , you left me when I was 12 . & im 16 . Its been a while . I miss you so much . You was my bestfriend . & I told you everything . You know momma wasnt really there for us when we was younger . & Now that your gone , I feel like I dont have anybody . . I used too turn too you for anything & everything . I just wish you was still here with me . This is when I needed you the most . If you could just come back one more time , I would take it , even if loosing you over & over again . Its worth is all .I love you so much <3
