My biological father was killed by a drunk driver 28 years ago on the 20th. This is a one of two poems I wrote for him. NO pity requested!!!!

The Baby Girl Lives 

I was a little girl 

the last time you saw me. 

Forever in my memory 

is the way you looked. 

You are never far from my thoughts 

and always in my heart. 


Sometimes we can't know 

the people who affect our life the most. 

We have to take what we do 

and make the best of it. 

All the while knowing it doesn't 

touch the surface of what was real. 


The fantasies I've had 

where you are concerned 

can't take the place of not knowing 

the person you were. 

But they've made life livable imaging 

the love you had for me. 


Daddies are supposed to die. 

Daughters are left to mourn. 

Instead I want to celebrate 

the life I've made 

with you in my thoughts.
