Prison Poem

My name is Tina, My husbands name is Jason. He is currently in a state prison, he's been there 12 years and I miss him so much. I moved over 300 miles from my home town recently to the city where the prison is located so I could be here closer to him. I don't know anyone here so it's been extremely hard. We still have a ways to go, but we'll make it. Our love is forever.

My Prayer

© Tina Fortner
I feel a tear run down my face
As I sit in this quiet lonely place
I think of you and need you here
I wipe away my falling tear
I hit the floor on bended knee
I ask, I beg, I start to plead
Please bring him home
God, no longer do I want to be alone
Is there an Angel you could send to us
And give us a miracle in God I trust
He's done enough time, he needs to be free
Please God bring him home to me
We believe in love, I believe in you
Please God is there something you could do
I'll make it up to you God, you know I will
I'll be good and honest, grateful and true
So please send us an Angel, is all I ask of you
I'll say this prayer each and everyday
Until he is in my arms and home to stay

  • I know how you feel girl it hasn't been years but only a few months and I already miss my love with all my heart. They are talking up to as many as 15-20 years. It breaks my heart to see someone who only barely turned 21 to be in such a situation but all I can do is sit back and pray. I'm hoping god can send a miracle my way because lord only knows how hard this is going to be!
    #I miss you baby!!!!

  • My husband has been in jail for three years on an eight year sentence. He is also very young, he is twenty seven years old and I married him last year at the prison. I wanted to show him that my love was so strong towards him that I didn't mind marring him while he was incarcerated. His parole is coming up soon and I hope and pray he comes home this year. Our kids miss him soo much and so do I. I just pray to God to send us an Angel that will bring him home. Stay Strong and have faith in God. God works in mysterious ways and works miracles in the lives of people. To my husband: I love you baby, always will

  • Wow, I don't even know what to say. I love this poem. Your story broke my heart. Here I am crying over my husband being away from our son and me for a mere 6 months with only 4 months to go. You have had to endure this pain for such a long time, and you continue to stand by his side with your head held high. For you to move such a distance from your family to be close to him, I have so much respect for you. You are such a strong woman. I pray god gives you strength and comfort in your new home town as well as brings your husband home. Good luck. With love and so much respect. Be strong, god will hear your prayers.

I have my man in prison too he's been there for 4 years already and doing a 21 year sentence, so I understand where your coming from. I go see my man every two weeks, it's a long drive up to northern California but I don't regret going. I love him and miss his. Keep it you. Stay strong and have faith. You'll be in my prayers he'll be out one day soon, just have faith in God.

  • Words can not even explain how this poems helps me! I married my husband two years ago and he's been in and out of jail but he was literally at the wrong place at the wrong time and he got caught with stuff that wasn't his and for the first time when he really thought he had nothing to worry about cuz it wasn't his, he got screwed the worse. Just because he had a record the cops pinned everything on him. Now he got taken away from me for 4.75 years. It jus happened about 3 months ago so I know I still have ways to go but when I found this poem and read all the comments it gave me comfort to know that I'm not the only one out there and it gives me strength to know I'm not the only woman to stand by her man when everyone else criticized me!! I believe in my vows and I'll continue to stand by him no matter what!! Good luck to all you ladies and I HOPE NOTHING BUT THE BEST and good luck in your cases!!! God bless and let the Lord be with you all!!

  • This poem really touched my heart. I know how it feels to have your husband incarcerated. Mine has been in there for 5 years now and still has 3 more years and that's already with good behavior. I live so far away and am laid off so I can't see him. It's been a few years since the last time I saw him. I write him every single week since he's been locked up, more than twice in one week. We can''t even have a private conversation on the phone because he calls me through his sister and then she hooks the call to me. I Love him with all of my heart and ALWAYS will, but his family hates me and blames me for his incarceration when it had nothing to do with me, but I don't care, I will continue to be by his side!! I miss you My Love!

  • My husband is also incarcerated, on his 2nd year of a 20 year sentence. I miss him more everyday and when I look at our children it breaks my heart. Our youngest will be 16 when he comes home. It's not easy to love a man behind bars but love in general isn't easy. HR is worth the wait, he holds my heart and soul. ~Mrs. 277035~ Wolfe's wife :)

  • Reading this poem has brought tears to my many others I was looking so I could send him somethink..just to show I'm thinking of him...I married my true love and soulmate 11 months ago..within 3 weeks and 4 days he was taken away from me.

  • I love your poem/prayer. I just wrote it down to send my bf/. He went to a PDC for 15 months after our 1st yr together, then we moved 400 miles away from home to keep him away from trouble. He was 32, I was 24. We had a yr w/o him being arrested. We moved back and within months he was arrested over and over, finally spending 2 years in prison. We have no children together, we aren't married, so I have no strings connected other than heart. When he got out in 2010, I told him I needed a break. He got himself together, I went to see him, but left feeling he would be going back soon and unfortunately 5 months later he went back. He has been locked up now for 15 months w/ 30 yrs and facing 30 more for other charges. People think I'm a fool, but I've prayed for God to take this love away, but I'm still here. My love for him is as strong as it ever was. 8 1/2 yrs later and I am still here. Nice to see other's dedications to their men as I have for mine!

Some nights I can't even sleep. I can feel he's really struggling. My prayers go out to each and every one of them. But I too believe in miracles.

  • Wow I read this and I felt everything in it. My husband and I have only been together 6 months and married 2 but from the moment I met him I knew he was the person I was supposed to spend the rest of my life with. He has been in and out of jail/prison most of his life all due to drugs and alcohol, when he does those things he turns into another person. He blacks out doesn't remember the things that he has done but when he comes down he feels so much remorse he has an amazing heart and a conscience. He is now there on charges and we have NO idea how long we are looking at. I love him so much and believe me I knew everything about him before I met him he was always and has always been open and honest with me from the moment we began corresponding online. He tried to warn me off but I fell in love with him before I ever met him in person. He sits there wondering how he can put me through all of this and all I ever do is try to reassure him that I am going NOWHERE no matter how long.

  • This Prayer really helped me as I'm am going through. I have read a lot of this stories and sometimes I feel like I'm the only one going through. But ladies we have to continue to remember that we are blessed and without the Love of God keeping you we would not be as strong as what we are. My husband has been gone for 2 months and it feels like years he was sentence to 21 mo. in federal prison. I just keep telling him everyday that God is going to set him free I can feel it in my spirit. I will be praying for all of you that God may give you strength and keep you through this time as this time is only a season. and all seasons past. May God be with you and keep you during this season.

  • My husband has been in jail since Feb. of this year and was put in prison in august of this year and will be there till April of next year. It may not be as long as a lot of you, but it still hurts the same. From the beginning of our relationship we knew this was it for both of us. We were always together non stop for 3 years and then they take him and all of a sudden I have to learn to live on my own again but this is not what I want. He should be right here next to me he should be in our bed beside me everynight. But he's not so I cry all the time. He has realized how much he loves and needs me and the kids now since we have been apart. I love him and he loves me. I just pray God has mercy on us and all of you other wives going through the same thing. Not to mention talking to him while he is in prison is almost impossible because its so expensive I can't afford it and I miss his voice just that good night call is something I need and can't get much.

  • I love your poem. My boyfriend was sentenced to Harris county state prison on July 24 2012 on a 2 year sentence in Hamilton G.A and it's really hard being away and without him. I only get to see him every two weeks and don't get to go all the time cause its so far away. I ask God and pray every day for him to send me a miracle and let him get an early release and I know and believe in my heart that he will answer my prayer soon. When he does get home we're doing right and living by God. I love my boyfriend so much and I just want him to come home to me.

  • I met my Fiancιe April 9th 2011. He was on Parole at the time, and everything seemed fine till sometime in late June when he got laid off because the company went under. He tried for months to get another job, anything to keep from having to leave me. Unfortunately Jan 18th 2012 he was taken to jail, and then shipped 230 miles away. Now if he doesn't get Parole this coming January he may not get out till October 2014. He is 35 and I'm 26. I plan on being there for him no matter what because no one in his life before me has ever showed him what true unconditional love is. Thank you for writing this, because it expresses my own feelings perfectly.

I just pray that this will be a lesson learned for him that he understands that he has a family out here who needs him and loves him dearly. My husband is my best friend and we may go through our ups and our down but we love each other. We are saved and sanctified and filled with the holy spirit God has blessed us in so many ways. I just want him home because my children miss him they cry all the time and I try to be strong for them but sometimes I find myself getting weak but I don't let them see me but God is good and still in the blessing business he'll be home soon and when that day comes I know that will be a fresh start for him.

  • My husband has only been in jail for only a month. His release date is on our anniversary 11/11/12. The reason why I'm so upset is because my husband is on parole in PA. He's incarcerated in NJ at the present time. His parole officer is looking for him. I'm praying that they don't put a warrant out for his arrest. I'm pregnant we've only been married for a year. This is our only child together he has three. I have one that's 16. I didn't want anymore. My husband talked me into having more. I don't want to be a single mom again please bring my husband home so he can experience the birth of our love child. He wasn't there to raise any of his children so I want for us two have that opportunity. Please don't take that from us Lord! I'm also upset that he's not here to rub my fat belly. Lol! I Miss him & its only been a month so I can't imagine what any of you ladies are going thru. I know if my husband had any years I would be by his side. I'm praying for all of you. Have faith and stay strong.

When I first heard the news about him being taken to prison, I felt so depressed and couldn't stop crying.

  • My husband has a 7 month sentence in the county jail. He has been gone for 3 months and I am already falling apart. We just had a baby in May and he was able to spend the first 3 months with our newborn. I really feel bad for my baby not having his father with him. He is missing major milestones. Raising kids alone is so hard and also sleeping alone. I pray for all of you woman on here to have strength because it is far from easy being left alone while your other half is gone. God bless you all.

  • This poem really made me cry my heart out. My husband is doing a 6 year sentence with 4 years 10 months to go.....he was convicted of a crime that had nothing to do with him....he was set up..a witness said the person who robbed him looked like my husband. There is no way possible he did the crime because he was with me at home setting up the crib and stuff for our first child arrival. I am 20 about to be 21 in December 21 and he just turned 22 November 24th . We have been together since we was 14 & 15. We have always been by each others side and have never gone a day with out seeing each other. It's so hard being a new mom and not being able to share his experience with him. I can't go see him because they sent him all the way up. We tried an appeal but they rejected it. Our daughter is now going to be 2 in July and it breaks my heart that she won't be able to get to know what amazing man her daddy is until she's 6.

  • I meet the love of my life while he has been in prison. In Nov 2011 the first time we met, when we locked eyes for the 1st time I knew he was my one! The one I was meant to spend the rest of my life with it was love at 1st sight. I've never had a feeling like that b4 ever. He swept me off my feet. June 2012 we got married we were so happy we fell in love in a hopeless place I'll never forget the look in eyes as he held my hands while we were saying I do he never took his eyes off mine the love I knew he had for me was all right there. He is a wonderful man and I can't wait till we can spend our days growing old together. He got 18 years he's been in for 3 and hopefully only has 4 more left. I show him everyday how much he means to me and how much I love him with every beat of my heart

But I love him and he loves me so that is all that matters. I try and visit every Saturday and the prison is 2 hours each way. I'm deff becoming a regular! I miss him so much, we never thought he would get anymore then probation. I guess that's what you get for having a crappy behind lawyer we paid out of the tail for. Hold your heads up high ladies!

  • I met the love of my life while working as a Registered nurse in his prison. The first time our eyes met, I knew something was different about him. I have never met anyone who makes me feel so special. His smile absolutely knocked me off my seat. I knew he was convicted wrongly from day 1. Something inside me kept telling me to speak to him and let him know how I felt but I was too afraid and just wouldn't do it. Besides, I had always said "you'll never have to worry about me falling for an inmate" The statement is so true "never say never". Just days before I was to quit my job there I finally spoke to him. He was given a 20 year straight sentence with no parole. He was forced to plead guilty by a public defender for voluntary manslaughter even though he was acting in self defense. Never met a more genuine person and I love him dearly. God, please perform a miracle. My Yankee Rose has spent 11 years for protecting himself. I love you Joshua with all my heart, mind and soul always!

Currently waiting on a answer from parole board to see if he will be able to come home this year. I read this poem everyday it gives me hope and always makes me cry but, I have faith in god and leave everything in gods hands. Staying positive really helps and keeping yourself busy. I see my husband every weekend and do everything I can because I know it's hard on him too. This is the perfect poem.

  • This poem really touched me...
    My husband and I got married 3 months ago but have been together for 4 years now. about 2 weeks after our beautiful wedding my husband was arrested, and put in jail, for how long?, we don't know yet... I was only just getting my head around being married to the love of my life, my soul mate and my best friend.
    I know it's only been a couple of months, but to go from spending every second with your love to no time at all is the worse pain anyone could go through, I beg, pled and pray every day to have my husband home in my arms, to start our married life together. We find out in 2 weeks how long he will go away for or if he will come home.
    All I can say is this poem is exactly what I go threw day after day and who ever wrote this I know how you feel but as my husband and I always say ''this will all be over soon and you'll be in my arms forever''

  • Never could put the words together, but this poem did. My husband has a 14 year bid and he has done six. We got married two years ago. I love him and I miss him dearly. This did bring tears to my eyes but I also rejoice because I know God will do just what he said He will do and we will be together soon.

  • I just wanted to say THANK YOU for sharing this poem. My wife has been in jail for five months now and is facing four years. I HAVE NEVER been on this side I've always have been the one in jail or prison. This is my 3rd marriage and the one I'm grateful for and will do what ever it takes to keep my wife happy and to prove my love and the way we can do that is to always be there for them and help them stay positive. We have a little girl that turns 8 this month of Sep 2013 and a son who turns 2 Oct. 2nd and I pray every night for her to come home to us. I was in jail last year and my wife stood strong right at my side and has been the only one ever not even my family would and I thank GOD every day for blessing me with an ANGEL MY TRUE LOVE AND ONLY TRUE LOVE. I blame myself for my wife being took away. This is my wife second time in jail and her longest. I would take her place in a second. The letters and visit and calling home and hearing that special voice means the world and brings peace.

  • This poem made me tear up I miss my husband so badly he was taken to jail the day after I delivered our 3rd baby. He got into trouble after our daughter died. He took it really hard he got involved in some drugs and it just went from there. I miss him so much and I just want him to come home. Our baby is now 8 months old and she still doesn't know her daddy and we just want him home.

  • My boyfriend was only out for one day and got to spend one night with him, when he was recalled back to prison. I miss him so much it hurts to sleep at night.

  • My husband has been in jail since June of this year, he will be there for 3 year. Words can't even explain the loneliness I feel not having him here with us. My two daughters, Chelsea 19 and Alissa 15. My husband will not be here to see my daughter graduate college and the other one high school. My heart aches everyday when I realize he is not here to lay down next to me at night. OMG I pray to God, to Jesus and to the Virgin Mary everyday and night to give me strength. I love you HON always and forever. God Bless families with love ones in prison.

  • Well what Can I say but God Bless you all for being the loyal and loving wives that you all are. I am 33 years old and a mother of four children 13, 8, 7, 6. I find myself lost and scared my loving husband, Best friend, other half, and soulmate is incarcerated. All due to a false police report and the fact that he is on Probation. It has only been two months but we have never been apart from each other in the last 20 years. Ever since September 2, 1993 the day he whispered into my year a question that changed my life for the Best. He asked if I would be his girlfriend. We ran off together when we were 15 and have been on our own ever since, and with everyday that goes by my love for him gets stronger. Nothing seems the same, nothing tastes the same with his absence. Our life was never easy but we had each other. Our love is one more testament that true love does exist. My children and I miss him terribly but one thing is for sure we will wait as long as It takes and make sure that when God sends him home we are here waiting to receive him with open arms.

  • I have been with out my husband since Dec 5th of 2013. It's very hard we have 6 kids and not a day that doesn't go by that I don't think of him, he's my true love, and my one and only and since he's been in prison they took so much away. I sit by the phone and cry and check the mail every day waiting for a letter. I love you Ronald Sigress Bland

  • I never imagined there were strong women like you ladies! This poems says it all, very inspiring and strengthening. I'm sailing on the same boat, my husband was sentenced for 15 years, it's been one year and two months now. Everyone keeps telling me I must be proud of him because he did nothing and he is a hero because he is sacrificing every day of his life for his country. We all are hoping that he will be home some day soon. He was taken from me 36 days after giving birth to our first child, and it breaks my heart to see my boy growing up away from his father, I wished he could see his first steps and giggles and wished he'd be present at his first birthday party. But only God knows how hard this has been and how much pain we go through, nothing lasts forever and soon the sun will definitely shine again. I respect all of you so much for your strength and patience and for having so much faith in God.
