The Day My Father Died by Carol Eliassen

I wrote this right after my Dad died when I was fifteen.  I even turned it into my 9th grade English class as an assignment.  There was a lot more to it but this is all I remember. 


The day my Father died
I knew not what to do
It came and rained
The pain was vain
I knew the sadness too.

I looked upon his bed
And grew afraid to see his face
Or touch his hand as he did lay.

I loved this man you see
But I hid this love from thine beloved
I didn’t know how to show
Because I didn’t know he would go.
