At Peace

Rest in Peace Daddy, I love you so much.

Dear Daddy,

     

The day you

Died

I got a phone call

Angry

Confused

I did not

Understand

      

The next

Two days were

Hell

I do not even 

Remember

Your funeral

     

I was just 

Stuck

In a state of mind

So deep 

My heart

Felt like 

It could not 

Remember 

How to 

Beat

     

Every moment

Became a

Blur

Every voice just

Sound

I could not focus

I was 

Just in 

Shock

     

You didn't see me 

Graduate

I know that is what 

You wanted me

To do

I just wish you were there

Everyone kept telling me

That you would be so

Proud

     

I cried

Every step

As I 

Accepted

That 

Damn

Diploma

      

The last time I 

Saw you

You were 

Drunk

I did not 

Even realize it 

I was

Blind

I just wanted to 

See 

You

       

I leave the 

Table for 

Two seconds

One wrong

Word was said

And you left

     

I ran

As fast as I could 

Crying

Chasing to say

Goodbye

But you were

Long

Gone

       

The next time 

I saw you

You were in a 

Casket

     

Alcohol was your 

Enemy 

And your 

Best Friend

I never saw you

Drink

Not once

You hid it so well

You did that 

For me

     

But in the end

It won

Your mind gave up

     

And 

You took

Your own

Life

     

You are

At peace now

I am now

Starting

To 

Understand

But

That war is 

Over

     

Love 

You

Miss

You

    

Love,

Your Little Girl

The End
