My Dad Is A Survivor – Grief Poems

My Dad Is A Survivor

(Grief Poems)

My dad is a survivor, too

which is no surprise to me.

He’s always been like a lighthouse

that helps you cross a stormy sea.

But, I walk with my dad each day

to lift him when he’s down.

I wipe the tears he hides from others.

He cries when no one’s around.

I watch him sit up late at night

with my picture in his hand.

He cries as he tries to grieve alone,

and wishes he could understand.

My dad is like a tower of strength.

He’s the greatest of them all!

But there are times when he needs to cry.

Please be there when he falls.

Hold his hand or pat his shoulder

And tell him it’s okay.

Be his strength when he’s sad

Help him mourn in his own way.

Now, as I watch over my precious dad

from the Heavens up above

I’m so proud that he’s a survivor

And, I can still feel his love!
