It's a cold dark night
I lost my dad today
I'm only 14 so young
I dont understand why it has to be this way

So many images come to mind
Whenever i speak your name
It seems without you in my life
Things will never be the same

I was your first born
Daddys little girl
I took my own path
But was still part of your world

I was not the best
Giulty of neglect
But you know daddy dearest
I had so much respect

I always will love
My dad...my star
Now my pain is to
Worship you from afar

I love you now
As i did back then
I just hope oneday
I will see you again

You raised me so well
We made a great pair
You guided me in life
Even though life was unfiar

Dad who will i turn to for answers
When life does not make sense
Who will be there to hold me close
When the pieces just dont fit

For years you did fight
And struggled to stay here
But you sent us a sign
When the end was quite near

Your body has died
But your spirit lives strong
In each one of us
Where it forever belongs

Your time here was short
I wish you could stay
But they need you upstairs
The angels called you there way

Until the day comes
That we cross over too
Our family will not be complete
Until we meet that day with you

I can connect with this one because I lost my grandpa when I was 9 or so, his first grand kid and my dad was never around so Grandpa took his place and became Dad and Grandpa. And we were close until the die he died with cancer

But in the start of this poem/story it's like you are talking to someone else. And the word  "you" never shows up until the 2nd paragraph.

When you use "you" you are talking in first person and instead of adressing whoever you were at the start now turns into the reader.

It's like you are expecting the reader to know everything about you and your dad. This is just my suggestion.
