About the Poem This poem is for anyone who has lost a parent as a child, a child as a parent or (like me) both. Losing My Father, My Son by Thomas As a son I lost a father, As a father, a son - If the choice was mine I'd rather Had not lost either one. I do not know where I come from Or where I am to go. True, this fate is less than some And more than some can know. My father, my son - you both I miss But we shall meet someday In the kingdom where angels kiss To chase the clouds away.
