I still miss you

miss you

Memories come to my mind,

Sometimes for a fleeting moment,

But often they linger on,

Especially the memories of you.


For memories are all I have of you,

And with time, they say they fade away too.

But I’ll hold on, to every bit of them,

Though I know they are so few.


If only I could turn back time,

To when you were still here,

When you’d comfort me with a hug,

And drive away my every fear.


How you’d encourage me,

To be kinder and better each day,

How I wish you could come back,

And I’d get to see your smiling face!


I often wonder how different things would have been,

If you were still here, Dad,

Through the big and small moments of my life,

I wonder how you’d feel.


But I’d like to think you are always there with me,

It is just I, who can’t see!

And so you would know, Dad,

I still miss you, every single day!


18 years ago, on this day, I lost my Dad. I miss him everyday! From the time I started this blog, I write a poem dedicated to him every year on this day.
Thanks for reading.

  1. It felt like I was reading about my mum. I lost her 19 years ago on 11th April. Hugs Reema.

    I read this and related it to my grandfather. I miss him a lot. I lost my uncle to a great fire accident on April 11. The month of April still reminds me of the close people I have lost in my life.

    Take care Reema. I have heard from so many people about how much they miss their father and it’s heartbreaking.. Whenever I fight with my parents, it is the stories of my friends that come to my mind. I still cannot think about a life without them. All I know is it’s not easy!
