Ode To The Alcoholic, That Did Not Win
IN LOVING MEMORY OF MY STEP FATHER...WHO I LOVED VERY MUCH





This is a poem that was written for my step-father, that I loved very much.
Alcohol was his whole life, and eventually destroyed our family.
He died from his disease on Feb. 18, 1995.
I miss him very much. I miss having a father around more than anything.
Please remember to tell your father no matter what,
How much you love him, I wish I could have the chance to say I Love You
Just one more time.
Even though he had this disease, and that's exactly want it is
A DISEASE, I still loved him very much.


ODE TO THE ALCOHOLIC THAT DID NOT WIN
**Poem Written By Rosebud2**




PHILLIP CHARLES GRIFFIN




Does anyone ever miss me?
Does anyone wish I was back?
Did I die leaving nothing--except hurt and anger?
Did anyone cry while I was dying?
Did anyone say I kept trying?
Did I leave just a little good, perhaps a laugh or two, or three?
Or did I leave everyone feeling---very angry--all towards me?
I always said I was sorry-
But alcohol got in my way-
It was my parent, my child, and my enemy.
I lost all I had--it made me very sad.
If and when you think of me-
Please shed a tear or two-
Then wink, a smile, saying-
I really did love you.






Dad, We had good times, We had bad times-
But I do miss you, and yes, I did really love you!!!!
With Dickie, Susie and Gloria (my siblings) all in heaven too,
Someday, we all will be a family once again.
