What do you think of this poem?

My father passed away recently.

Here one moment, gone the next

A precious life is stolen

So innocent and sweet

We now live in the moment

The world can't quite imagine

The loss that we have suffered

The troubles we must face

The pain that we've weathered

The earth still spins and hearts still beat

This winter will still come cold

Come this Christmas, the holiday season

We'll be all alone

It's impossible to fill this void that is left

Not that I'd ever want to try

Nothing can replace him

I took for granted that he was mine

Here one moment, gone the next

A precious life is stolen

So innocent and sweet

We now live in the moment

    oh my gosh I am so sorry. I feel reallu bad for you. :'(

    I am crying with you sister.

    Ok well very very beautifull written poem. Great and tremendously sad and again beautiful Bravo simply Bravo. Here is a poem to comfort you...

    Still with you

    You sit by the fire dreading that day

    and how he isn't sitting side by side with you

    But think of what you couldn't of done if you hadn't had him at all

    The warmth of the fire brings a chill of of your heart

    and for one sacred and beautiful moment you feel a kiss on your cheek

    You look to see who it was and no one is there

    Though you swear in the ashes there is faint letters that say

    I love you more than you know.

    All you can do is smile knowing he is still there with you side by side.

    Hope that cheers you up again very sorry.
