Yesterday was the 18th anniversary of my father's passing from stomach cancer.  In memory of him I have written a little poem.

Dad I Miss You

Hello there the angel of my nightmare
  the shadow in the background constantly haunting me

Sleep eludes me, hungry for acceptance and love
Frustration and anger stimulate my wakefulness

The voice inside my head screams continually you're not worthy

I miss you....Where are you...
The only man in my life who ever truly loved me
I miss you...Where are you...I need you...You left to soon

Perception hits me like a brick wall
The angel of my nightmare is no angel at all...but death

He stole you...He took you too soon
My heart does not heal

Dad I miss you...I miss you still!!
