Wife Death Poem

Missing My Wife Poem

I was down tonight thinking of my wife who passed away in April 2011. I decided to try writing something out and I guess just want feedback from people that know poetry on what you think

Missing My Wife

© Ryan
When I try to take a break
and relax in my busy life
my heart it does ache
and all I think is how I miss my wife

It hurts me so bad
all this pain inside
thinking of the love we had
and the tears I have cried

I think of the places that we went to
how I love you with all my heart
and all the things we didn’t get to do
but most of all how we have been torn apart

I miss you so
and love you still
I did not want to let you go
but I tell myself it was Gods will

Every day I see things you done
it is lonely without you here
I try to be strong for our wonderful son
but all I can do is drink another beer

  • I just read your poem. Lost my wife in Feb., 2011 just a few months before you. I had a bit of heartache reading it... I get it, We are spreading her ashes this Sun., at her childhood cabin; it's been too painful for my daughters and her parents till this point. Sitting here crying now thinking of you. My wife was a beautiful blonde contradiction; she lived life to the fullest, but she struggled; when she died, it was quick, painful and final. I miss her every day, and I don't know about you, but I keep looking for signs... I just want to know she's OK? Is that nuts?? I don't care. That's what bothers me the most! I took care of her for 30 years, and it's hard to stop feeling that. Looking forward to a time when I can stop feeling that pain,

  • I lost my beautiful wife 22 April this year and I've never felt pain like it. Nancy was only 40 and was the most beautiful soul . We were best mates. I nursed my wife in the last three years and that only served to make us even closer. I've cried every day since Nancy passed away and I can't imagine my life getting easier any time soon. My heart goes out to anyone experiencing the loss of a loved one. We have to be strong for them and try to forge a new life that will never be the same. God bless.

  • I lost my wife of 30 years on November 4 2013. Now I can't stop worrying if she is ok. A part of me wants to protect her and hold her in my arms and tell her how much I love her. But she's not there. I keep expecting her to come home. I just want to hear that soft voice of hers. Every once in a while I need to look at her picture which seems to help with the anxiety.

  • I just came across this poem and read it, it's heartbreaking but true, I lost my wife on January 16 2014. She was 22 years old, I'm 24, we have a 16 month old son. He was a mamma's boy and he still looks for her everyday. We were married 4 years and now it's so lonely and empty without her.
