A young woman’s life turns upside down when her father, who was her best friend, suddenly dies. Throughout her pain, she decides to turn her tragedy into triumph by writing a collection of poems in memory of her father. Her faith in God gave her the strength to survive such a challenging time in her life. This collection of poems gives hope to people who suffered the loss of their father and will show how God brings restoration through hope and prayer. This collection is my poetry journey from pain to purpose for Christians who can identify with the loss of a loved one. 



Dearest Daddy


You are truly the best father anyone can have
We are going to miss your hugs, kisses, and your laugh
Our minds keep telling us you are in a better place
But our hearts long to see your beautiful face
You are genuinely one of a kind
You are the sweetest, funniest, and most caring person anyone could ever find Everyone knows we all share something very special
We have this bond that is truly unbreakable
You were so proud of all of our achievements
You were always there for the good and the bad moments
Don’t worry, we’ll tell D.J. how wonderful a man you were
We will all cherish your memories forever God wanted you; He saw fit to set you free We miss you and we love you, our dearest daddy

‘Get Up

We are all destined to do great things
Let’s all dream big and live like queens and
kings
It doesn’t matter what your situation may be
You can grow up to be anything you wish to
be
A doctor or a lawyer the possibilities are
endless
Let’s try our best and strive for greatness
Don’t let anyone stop your shine
Get up and do something, stay on your grind
Put God first in everything that you do
The rest is left up to you’
