A Life Chapter is Over

I am reposting this poem for all those who hurt on Fathers Day for what they didn’t have or don’t have in their lives. I wrote this and posted it  back in 2008 for Sandra L when her father passed away.


A Life Chapter is Over

By Heather L Campbell

January 29, 2008

Inspired by Sandra L.’s article
Sandra, you are in my thoughts and prayers!


Mourn for the father who went his way
Mourn for the father who died today

Mourn for him, the good and the bad
Mourn  for all the things you never had

Tears over the  times that will never be
Tears you cried that he will never  see

How did he not know how your heart ached?
How could he not know how it would break?

Why couldn’t he live up to his God given name?
Why wasn’t  being a Father  part of his  game?

There’s so many questions but so little time
They rush and circle around in your mind.

This chapter of your life is over and done
The opportunity’s gone and nobody won

Grieve for the years that he had no clue
Grieve for the love that he didn’t give you

Grieve for the man who lost everything
When he missed the gift your love would bring.
