From Your Daughter

A poem

By Niña Bless ChavezPublished 3 months ago 1 min read

Hey dad!

You were the best father I ever had.

Always the best chef who cooks my food

That tastes so delicious and good.

When I was five you taught me how to tie my shoelace,

And how to fight, for you said that life is a race.

Hey dad!

Remember those times you get mad?

Maybe because of the worsts and pain,

I want to bring back your smile

Yet it’s now harder to gain.

For all those mistakes I did,

I realized I was a foolish kid.

Hey dad!

All the times I felt so bad,

Especially when mom had passed away

It’s been eleven years from now, anyway.

The feeling of husband losing a wife,

From a ten-year-old kid turning to grade five.

Hey dad!

How does it make me so sad?

imagining on my 18th birthday,

You’ll take me to the dancefloor I pray

To the tune of ‘Dance with my father’ covered by Jessica Sanchez,

Swaying slowly as I whispered to you, “You’re the best”.

Hey dad!

Can you lend me your hand?

I want to go back in time when we were still together

But now, everything seems over.

Dad, this poem is for thee,

In my heart, there you’ll be.
