RIP Poems for Dad – Poetry about Death of a Father


1) No one will ever understand
I don’t know where to begin
Since the day you were gone
I’ve been numb from within
Dad, you were more than a father
You were what no one else could be
Days and years may go by
But my hero, you’ll forever be

2) A gentleman, full of class
A friend, always a supporter
A man, always of his words
A father, unlike any other
A human being, always so helpful
A dad, beyond compare
A soul, always kind-hearted
An unsung hero, who’s always been there
RIP pop

3) Why me, why me
I just can’t stop asking life
Taking my dad away
Putting me through this strife
Friend, mentor and hero
He was, not just my old man
In faith, I seek solace
Trusting, this was God’s plan

4) I don’t think that even I
Will ever be able to comprehend
How deeply you loved me
Till the very end
A blessing, of the truest type
In your love, I have seen
Not just my father
But my greatest friend you’ve been

5) Called away too early
By the heavens above
RIP, my dad, my friend
My true first love
Ripped away by fate
Torn apart mortally
Separated by death
But loving you eternally

6) What I’m going through
It’s impossible to fathom
All of my life’s dreams
Have suddenly become numb
Can’t even begin to imagine
When I marry, that day
My dad, you won’t be there
To give me away

7) Sacrificing it all, always living for us
Providing and protecting, in every way
Taken for granted, for all these years
Yet you powered on, day after day
Despite the pain, only beautiful memories
Flash, when you come in my mind
Such is the beauty of life
And the legacy you leave behind

8) Just one more time, I wish
I could hear your voice
Unfortunately, life hasn’t
Given me that choice
I feel lost and dazed
In memories, I seek solace
For your hugs, will forever
Be my happy place

9) Taken away too soon
Life is cruel, now I know
My existence itself
Has lost its glow
Not just a human being
Not just a dad
The most precious person
My life’s ever had

10) Never ever for a single moment in my life
Did I ever imagine, that I’d see this day
Guess there was never a moment that I thought
That destiny would take you away
I’ve been living a nightmare, not a life
Ever since that fateful moment
In my heart and in my soul
Your absence has left a gaping dent
Not just a father
But a hero to me every single day
My only prayer in life, is
With me forever, wish you could stay

11) I’m lost and dazed
As life get tougher
Dad, I miss you now
More than ever
The pain inside me
Is bursting at the seams
Dad, I wish all this was
Just a bad dream

12) Can’t help but smile
As I look back on the years gone by
Can’t help but smile
Even when the tears flow as I cry
Can’t help but smile
Even when I know we’ll never speak again
Can’t help but smile
Even when my heart is throbbing with pain
That’s the kind of amazing life
And upbringing you’ve given me
That no matter how bad a situation
The beautiful memories, I’ll always see

13) Dad, I don’t even know where to begin
An endless pit, my life has been thrown into
My friend, my guide, my hero
Don’t know, what I’ll do without you
What a great human being you were
Not just I, everyone will remember
A tough road ahead, it’ll be ahead
Missed you will be, now and forever

14) I’d be lying if I said
That you were just my father
A friend, a supporter, a mentor, a coach
All this combined, unlike any other
Large-hearted and always there
That’s what you’ve been to me
Death may have taken you away
But in my heart, you’ll always be

15) Life asked a lot from you
Yet, I kept asking for more
Now that I think about it
Shatters me sore
You sacrificed it all
Just to make me smile
Sorry, I didn’t realize this
Sorry, it took me a while
All that you have done
Waste, I won’t let it go
By being the best I can be
Is the only way it’ll show
Dad, your legacy
Will live on through me
From the heavens above
I know you’ll proudly see

16) I’ve wished for a lot of things
All my life, up until now
My thoughts, since the day you left
Have changed and how
All I want, is to be with the man
In whose arms, I grew
All I want dad
Is one more day with you

17) Now I realize
What you taught me to be strong
Whatever I thought about your advice
Turned out to be wrong
It was for this fateful day
When you wouldn’t be there
That I’d be able to, for myself
Fend and take care
Sorry for misunderstanding
All your tough love, Dad
Your words were the best advice
I could’ve ever had

18) As I write this today
My heart is shattered, broken
I didn’t just lose just my dad
My everything, he was my number one
Every single day he lived
His life through my eyes
For all his sacrifices
My smile was his biggest prize
Even half the human being that he was
Never, will I be able to be
From the heavens, I hope
My love for him, he still sees

19) Feelings, that makes my soul happy
Memories, that words can’t explain
Hugs, that still give me warmth
Thinking of which, I feel the pain
An abyss, is where I feel like I’m in
A void, life has been thrown into
Even silence, is painfully loud
Dad, what will I do without you

20) I can’t even begin to explain
What it means to not have you around
It’s a frightening feeling
I feel like I’m being drowned
No more smiles, no more laughs
Happiness is a thing of the past
Why did fate have to take you away
Too soon, too fast
