If you write a poem for your dad, make sure it’s better than this one

This music
makes me cry
this night
makes me cry
thinking of you
makes me cry
because I haven’t done it for a long time
don’t think that your absence has gone unnoticed
or that I’m using your memory for a cheap rhyme
5 years or so
I don’t remember anymore, I was never that good at birthdays
I guess that’s how death dates also go
They say writing a poem makes a person immortal
so why don’t I feel like your here
it just makes these thoughts more hurtful
this poems rhythm is choppy
its rhyme scheme inconsistent
I miss you just the same
I just feel so distant
