Husband Death Poem

To my darling husband who died in March 2008. This poem has helped me to express my feelings to all who are going through the same situation as myself

My Lost Love

© Anne Spiller
I have only just lost you the pain is hard to bear
Do I have to go through life knowing you're not there
please some one explain to me why he had to go
are there any reasons I really need to know
I sit here and remember all the lovely times we shared
the talks the laughter of every one you cared
I am told the pain will ease in time
and I will think of him without a tear
but that will be impossible as I need to have him here
He was my very world to me my ever guiding star
Just kiss me softly on the cheek and tell me where you are

  • My Darling Husband Hans,
    I lost my husband on April 28th 2010 he was everything to me. He was my rock he was fighting for over 3 years with his diabetes and had had 2 triple bypasses with in 10 years. He was everything to me. I miss his voice calling my name, I miss his silly jokes, his songs he would write to me. He was so very good to me. Yes we had our arguments sometimes silly. But always would tell each other I love you. For the pass 2 years I could see how weak he was getting. And it would break my heart. I don't think anyone especially our sons would believe how sick he was. He was a proud man and would not say how sick he was.

    I would give anything just to hear his voice and smiling face and greeting me at the front door when I came home from work. My heart is breaking everyday I miss him so very much. I will never find anyone like him ever. For 36 years he was in my heart. And I am waiting to be at his side once again.

  • I haven't lost him yet, but everyday he is getting weaker and the time feels near. I have no words of how I am feeling I never been like this before. We have been married for 37 yrs. my life has always included him and without him it seems like I will not have a life. I am so tired and numb and scared my mind is trying to find answers for how can I help him or how can I go on without him. And I am feeling like this when I can look up and see him resting on the bed as I sit by him I can't imagine how it will be when he is gone.

  • I am lucky enough to not have lost a loved one yet, but the thought of it terrifies me. I have finally met the man of my dreams, he has swept me off my feet and I never knew it was possible to be so intensely in love with someone. Your poem has touched me, as did Kathleen's comment (because Hans is my boyfriend's name also).

    May all of your loved ones rest in peace and be waiting to take your hand when your time comes.

  • I lost my husband of 35 years on August 7, 2010 after a 2 1/2 year battle with heart failure. I watched the love of my life slip away. I feel broken and most times I don't even know what I'm doing! Grief is so consuming! I know he is no longer in pain and that gives me peace. My Tom was everything to me and I know that when it's my time to leave he'll be there waiting for me and that is so comforting to me. I no longer fear death cause my beloved husband will be waiting for me. I'll love him forever!

  • I lost him on November 11, after 30 years of true love and a full happiness. He died of cancer and God gave me the grace of being with him when it happened, and before that making everybody say goodbye. We never directly talked about his upcoming death, and I am regretting it now. I knew that he felt full accomplished in life and he preferred his death to pass thru age and illness. He was 76. I don't know how to go ahead. I am also tired of people telling me that time will ease my pain. I need to find a purpose to go on living. We had many projects in common, many dreams to make true but I have no energy.
    I am trying to start a spiritual path with more compassion. We were true twin souls, we just mirrored one to another most of the time. I always thought what I would do when he left me (he was 20 years older) and I always thought that I would immediately die. But I am still here, trying to employ my energy on a spiritual search to find out where is he now and how will I reach him.

  • I lost my husband on 3/25/2010. We were together for 40 years and we had 4 beautiful children. He went in the hospital with pneumonia and wound up with MRSA. My children brought him home and within 12 hours he was gone. No one knows what I am going through I lost the love of my life. How do you continue on when that person is no longer there for you. I miss his smell and hugs if I could just have one more hug. I know that he is with me but I can't wait for the day that I will be with him again.

  • I lost my husband on 12th January 2011. His name was David Jamieson and he was 50 years young.
    I would have to say that this has just been the most dreadful time of my life. I loved and still love him so much and I can't come to terms with him not being here.  
    The mornings are by far the worst. He's not here in our bed and to wake up to anymore.  
    I miss my husband, my man, best friend, soul mate so very, very much and I just can’t believe all of this. I am consumed with the thought that I will never see him again and am in denial.
     In the last 5 weeks / 35 days I have cried a sea of tears each day and I wonder what life will be like as I never imagined a day without him in it.  
    There is some comfort in that he was unconscious when he went. I was with him when he was still conscious and, thank god, was able to kiss him, tell him I loved him and that I would stay until he woke up. It never happened and my funny, loving & handsome husband was taken from me far, far too soon.

It seems a hole has opened up in my soul that can't be filled. Its been 4 weeks today and the pain is worse. Trying to cope with the loss seems unbearable. Will anything ever be OK again?

  • My wonderful husband died in October 2010, the day before our 27th Wedding Anniversary. He gave me the happiest years of my life and I do not know how I am going to live without him. Nothing has any meaning to me any more and I find it difficult to be interested in anything. Our 27 years together feels like just 7 and now I only wish I had savored it more. But I know he would tell me that we were busy living life together and enjoying things and that now I must carry on without him and that he would hope I might find someone else.

    I often feel he is here with me and then I am full of despair when I wonder whether it is simply my imagination. We were both scientists and, as such, I used to ask him if he felt there was something else after death. He would always answer by saying that we do not know everything which gives me hope that I will meet up with him again one day. I am trying to carry on in a way that would make him proud - until we can be together again.

  • This poem touched my heart. I lost my husband on March 1 2011. I woke up to fond him dead in the living room. The cause is still unknown. He was only 35 years old. Way too young to die. We had too much ahead of us for this to happen. I loved him with all my heart and soul. We had been together for 12 years. I never pictured growing old without him, never could have. He was my soulmate. My one true love. For now I can see nothing but growing older alone. We have a eight year old son who mosses his father dearly. I just can't understand why he had to leave so soon. I cry myself to sleep most night when I do sleep. The bed is so cold without him. I miss his voice, his laughter, his smile. I miss everything about him and I think I will live the rest of my life with a broken heart. I miss you so much Bobby. May we be together again one day soon.

  • I lost my husband, Freddie, on September 10, 2010, 10 days shy of his 52nd birthday. We were together for 26 years and married for 23. Cancer took him 11 months after we found out he had it. He was my life and I am lost without him. Every day it seems I miss him more. Every where I look I am reminded of him. All of the memories we made together do not make me feel better they only make me cry. I do not believe it will ever get easier. I miss my friend. He was a wonderful man with a heart of gold. He loved me and I loved him and we said we would be together forever.....I miss my Freddie.

  • My wonderful gentle loving husband of 39 years, died almost three years ago, on June 3 2009. Almost without warning, he was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer, and a month to the day of diagnosis, he died in my arms. That month is a blur of knowing I was loosing him, not wanting to accept the fact, and struggling to hold onto my faith. We got him home for one precious week before he needed hospital care. Life now stretches out long and lonely, I didn't want to face life without him, but to honor his life I go on. 6 adult children mourn his loss too, and 14 grandchildren, one he never met in this life. It is hard not seeing him every day, hearing his laughter, his silly jokes, hearing him tell me he loves me. Plans we had for retirement have all gone now. I will hold him in my heart forever and a day.

  • It will be one year on June 21st. My husband was my world and the one who showed me my own worth He was my best friend and the one I turned to for everything. He could make me laugh like nobody I know. Time has not made it better, and I am tired of hearing it will be okay. Everyone keeps saying what would he want you to do? I can't answer that cause he is the one I would turn to for the answer. I miss him more than any words could ever say!!

  • I lost my husband in Feb. 2011. A month later in March our daughter was born. I am only 21 years old and its extremely hard to be so young and not being able to share my life with him. I did everything I could to save him but apparently it was not enough. My daughter is a living miracle and keeps me going. I know that he had the chance to hold his baby-girl before she was sent to me and I can't wait to be in his arms again.

I'm not sure how to live life without him. I love him so much. The day he died part of me died too. I'm so full of anger and keep asking myself why? I was with him on the motorcycle and suffered injuries but can't understand why I lived and he didn't. Keep asking myself why did that man have to run that red light that day.

  • My darling Harry left me on August 9th 2011. He asked me to watch TV with him that evening, we had had a lovely day although his heart complaint had made him breathless and he had just come out of coronary care the day before. I had some jobs to do so did not sit with him. When I went back into the room a little while later, he had passed away in his chair. I will regret for ever not going and sitting with him, maybe I could have saved him. I am only half a person now and miss and love him so very much. God Bless my love, see you in the morning.

  • November 9th, 2006 was the worst nightmare I could possibly imagine. I lost my soul mate, best friend and the love of my life, the father to our two boys. To a motorcycle accident. It will be 5 years tomorrow and each second of every single day I ask why. That question will never really be answered but I still need to know, I guess I will in time. We were high school sweethearts and we had our whole future planned and in a blink of an eye it was taken. They say it gets easier with time but I don't see how. Our sons remind me of him so much. If it was not for them I wouldn't be as strong as I am today! This poem speaks so much to me thank you!

  • I lost the most important person in my life on 9/27/11. We were married 16 years and together for 20. He died suddenly at the age of 45. We have a teenage daughter who will be going to college soon. What breaks my heart the most is all the milestones he will miss and the dreams that we had for our retirement years are shattered. I miss you, my love, I will never love anyone but you. I know you are at peace. You deserve it but knowing that I will have to live without you for decades is almost unbearable. I look forward to the day that we are reunited for good.

  • Tuesday, November 22, 2011 has become the worst day in my life. I left my husband to go to the doctor at 9 am and when I came back at 10:20 I found him lying face down in the garden, ambulance already called by neighbors. He was purple and cold and I couldn't find a pulse and I was screaming for the ambulance who came soon but could do nothing. It was an aneurysm from dissection of the aorta which took the love of my life away from both me and our son. The pain and loneliness are devastating and none of the tears I've shed have brought any comfort. He was the most wonderful, kind and patient man alive and his funeral was flooded by people who had hardly known him but were touched by his congeniality and kindness. He would always talk to people and listen to their pain, always genuinely interested and looking to help. He was a true soulmate and wonderful father to our 18 year old son.
    I will miss him every single second of the rest of my life and can't wait to be with him again.

  • I miss my Husband who died in November. My heart aches. Life is not the same anymore. I died the day he died. I am a Christian so I will see him again one day, but life is cold and lonely. I walk around in circles -- I am numb. What a wonderful man. He was so special. I have great memories of our 20 years together. He died at the young age of 46. God makes no mistakes so I know it is his will. One second turns into one minute. I have not gotten to an hour yet. Life without him seems unbearable.

  • This poem really touched me. I feel for all of you. I lost my husband, Vince, on May 19,2011. He is only 45. He died suddenly of a heart attack at work. He is a high school principal and I feel awful for everyone at his school. He is so loved and respected by all the kids. Its been a terrible loss for them also. His heart was truly in his work. He is the best at what he does. Life for me now is so sad and lonely. How do go on? The pain has gotten worse since the shock wore off. I can suggest support groups. For the young woman I'm starting a group in January for spouses 50 and younger. See if you can find a support group in the area you live in. It helps me to get all my thoughts out. God Bless

  • I lost my soul mate and my heart on 6 Sept 2011. He fought so valiantly the cancer that consumed his body. I've never realized how much you could love until I met Ray we spent 4+ wonderful years together and did some amazing things - like many others I wish we'd talked more about his dying but I suspect like many others we didn't really believe it would happen. I miss him terribly and feel that my heart has been ripped out - do I want to continue without him well the answer is of course NO but that would go against his zest for life. So I will grieve and hope the good lord will re-unite us when my time comes.

  • My dear husband passed away Sept. 10 2011. He had a 2 year fight with cancer and watching him whittle down to nothing was so painful. The house screams gone and alone. We were married 34 years and he was always so good to me. Yes we had differences but who doesn't. So glad someone expresses the pain in poem. Only those who go through this knows. Looking forward to the day we are together again.

  • My loving husband passed away on Christmas Eve. He went in the hospital on November 27th, with what I would later find out was an inoperable glioma brain tumor. I thought we would be able to get treatments, and I would have some more time with him, but it wasn't to be. The oncologist told me he couldn't treat him and couldn't believe he was still alive. He passed away less than 3 days later. He was only 52, and we were only married 6 years, but he loved me completely and was so devoted. I can only say that I long to see him again in heaven, and until then, I pray for dreams of him.

  • I lost my Loving Husband and Soulmate Rusty on Sept 22,2009. I was at work and got the dreaded call, He had a massive heart attack and passed in our sons arms. I felt like it was a nightmare and I just couldn't wake up. I feel so lost and empty without him, they say time heals a broken heart, but that is so untrue. He was not only my Husband but my best friend. He was the kindest and loving person one could ever meet, He was a dedicated Husband and Father. He always put others first and himself last. He treated me as his queen and was always telling me how much he loved me, He always greeted me after I had a long night at work and would give me massages to take away the stress and pain. It hurts to go on with life and him not being a part of it. I was so blessed to be his wife and to have what others take a life time to find what we shared. I will always love him and hold him dear to my heart and look forward for the day we can be reunited and spend eternity together.

  • I lost my husband on December 17, 2011. He was only 35. We have four beautiful children, ages 14, 8, 6 & 4. We were together for 17 years. He went to bed on a Friday night and never woke up. It has been the worst 4 weeks of my life. I know these feelings will be here forever. I know I need to move forward with our children. There's not one minute of the day that I don't think of him. I know one day we will meet again and have eternity together.

  • Jan. 11 2012 had totally changed my life. It was the day the police came to me and told me my husband was dead. They said it was an accident that he used that jack and the car fell on him and he died instantly. Words can't express on how I felt that day he was so good with cars and he was so young he was only 31 years on. He was just starting life. For a 25 year old to lose her husband at such a young age is hard although we've been together for seven years I still wish it could have been longer. I thank god for him bringing you into my life you helped me grow in so many ways. I love you Hun and I'm gonna treasure our memories forever may your life go on through your kids. Miss you

  • My marriage to Dave was sometimes very difficult. It felt like we were so far apart at the end. He had heart failure, diabetes and kidney disease. We spent months in the hospital. Every day was long and hard and there were days I wished I was alone. The good times and the laughter were just memories. He passed away on June 25, 2011. I am numb. I feel lost. I wish I could talk to him just one more time. He was 56 years old. I always thought there was more time. . .

  • Back in 1994 I lost my husband to a brain aneurysm. He was 40 years old. I would love to tell you it gets easier, but I can't. After 18 years I still miss and mourn for him. It's impossible to forget about someone who was so loving and true. And you shouldn't have to. If memories are all you have then you should cherish them, every day. Until I go to my grave I will carry him in my heart. That answers the last verse of the poem! I believe it's better to have had his love and then lost, than not at all. It sustains me. Love never dies is so true!!!!!! Sorry to hear of your losses which brought you to this sad but good poem.

  • I lost my husband of 20 years on September 8th, 2010. He had been sick for 2 years. But I never took for granted that just because he was sick that I could have died before him. God took him first and no matter how prepared you may be, it will hit you like a ton of bricks. All sickness is not unto death, but God said different. I miss him very much. But because of my relationship with Jesus, I have been able to cope and maintain my sanity. Jesus was always first in our lives and because of this the pain is less intense and a little more bearable. I cry, I laugh, I hurt, I grieve...but God. I appreciate this poem, however, my husband was not my whole world, Jesus is. And I know that when I die I will see him and all my saved loved ones again. So they are not lost, just gone from this earth but never from our hearts and our minds and those memories will last a lifetime. Love you Honey..until we meet again!

  • I lost my husband, July 23, 2011. He was 55 years old. We just went and bought a Harley. We were on our way home. I was following behind him. He merge over to let the other traffic on the interstate, hit the rumble bars on the side of the road, went into a ditch. Next thing I see is him laying in the ditch. People stopped to help. I heard them say slight pulse, snapped neck, no pulse. I lost it. We had our 6 year old granddaughter with us. I am so lost. I LOVE AND MISS HIM SO MUCH!!! We were married for 18 wonderful years. We had planned our vacation for 2012 and everything. I will go on that vacation and I know he will be right with me.

  • I lost my fiance in a tragic accident, a building collapsed killing him. He was 49 years old . We had a love story of our own and we found each other again after 23 years to only be together for 2 years till his death. He was my soulmate, my love of my life and I was that to him. I don't know why this happened , I just don't understand , I'm so lost and confused I don't know how to move on from here. My heart is broken and no matter what happens I will never be the same . I'm so scared when I think about it that I just want to die myself. Where did you go Vince please tell me. I love you.

  • I've lost my soulmate, June 01, 2011. in my arms...I tried CPR...but it was just his time to go home....he suffered dearly due to diabetic complications, kidneys, heart, eyesight, numbness in his limbs, he had a leg amputation, 3 times till they got to 6 inches below his knee. We have been blessed with a son {a little daddy} he is his clone...I love him dearly, but sometimes I look at my sons hands...{clone of daddy} and I will start aching in my heart...the tears start to fall..those hands comforted me loved me, tickled me, wiped my tears, when he was going through dialysis..he was so strong. I cry like a baby, but what I had was a God given gift, I was truly blessed!! I cry as I type these words in...the pain is unlike anything I've ever felt! There are no words to describe my deep pain, my heart broke into pieces that day, And I'm afraid there is not enough glue to put the pieces back, because the pieces are shattered! Time does not help....I will never understand why people tell me it will get better in time? Only memories linger, when he was still on earth...sincerely bittersweet.

  • Hi, this poem touched me, and so has many of the messages I've just read, I also lost my husband 9 years ago yesterday, We were both in a friends car, he was driving very fast he wouldn't slow down he was showing off, he hit a speed bump which was sticking out burst the front tire, the car then slammed into a number of parked cars, then hitting a lamppost and flipping the car into the air doing a barrel somersault, then landing back on its wheels, my partner last words to me was I love Carla, I watched him die in that night and also our best friend, we had a 4 year old boy, I was 21 he was 28, my life was shattered that night and even as I'm writing this I am crying. How long will I feel like this? The guilt is unbearable, I was and still in love with him, he was my first love.

  • I lost the love of my life, my soulmate and my best friend Randy on May 31, 2011. We had a great day spending time with our 2 girls, ages 7 and 10. It was a normal day, mowing the yard, riding 4-wheelers, eating take-out pizza for dinner and having a pallet party watching movies and eating popcorn. Then a few hours later our lives completely turned upside down. My husband of 16 years at the age of 41 had a very unexpected massive heart attack and was gone from our lives. Our lives will never be the same. I lost my one and only and my girls lost the daddy that was their everything! Oh how he loved his 3 girls. Our hearts are filled with such sorrow, but knowing he is with Jesus waiting on us seems to bring a little comfort. Thank you for this means a lot to me and my girls.

  • March 13, 2011 will mark the 1st anniversary that I lost my husband and best friend to cancer. Mark and I were married for 23 years. I feel so lost and lonely without him. Some days are harder to get through than others but I try to remain strong for our 2 children that he loved and adored. I have a picture of him on our bed that I kiss every morning and night, a ritual to keep him alive in my mind. I talk to him everyday and I always tell him I love him. I know he is with our Heavenly Father and that's a comfort but at times my heart aches for him so bad, it's hard to breathe. I miss his smile, the sound of his voice, everything about him. I miss and love him so.

    I lost my husband of 25 years in tragic car accident, his car was hit by a dump truck in January of 2009 , my sweetheart died instantly, did not have my last goodbye with him, until I saw him lying in peace in a hospital holding place where they had his body. I did say good bye to him there, and told him how grateful I was to have him in my life for all these years. I though all this tragedy I have become such a strong person in God, I did not know how strong I was till being strong was my only choice, and God was my strength and God was my choice, The journey was long, but with God on my side the road was smoother, at least for me it was. I have learned to trust God, he will never leave us nor forsake us. When we think God is so far from this pain we go through, that is when he is the closes to you. May God bless everyone.

  • My husband, my best friend, my love, and baby girl's daddy died of a sudden massive heart attack on Friday, April 13th, 2012 (on Greek good Friday), he was only 46 and we were married for only 4 years this October. It happened so fast that I still can't was a nice morning, I was feeding the baby when he collapsed the first time in the laundry room, then getting up and collapsing again in the kitchen in my arms, he passed away almost an hour later in the hospital. Our beautiful daughter will be one on June 2, he was so looking forward to celebrating her birthday. Niko was a wonderful person, honest, kind and most loving. This feeling of missing him and knowing I will never see him again breaks my heart every minute. Sometimes I have no idea what I am doing and saying. He was a wonderful daddy and so loved baby girl. I love him so much and miss him so much...a part of me died that day too. I love you Niko and will always be loving and thinking of you.

  • I lost the love of my life, April 19th this year. The absolute worst day of my entire life. He was my soul mate, my favorite person I've ever met. We had our whole lives planned out together.. but his was cut short at the age of 22, 3 months before his 23rd birthday. He dropped me off at the airport on April 18th, to send me off to my grandmother's funeral in North Carolina. We said our goodbyes, kissed, said we loved each other, couldn't wait for me to come home in 3 days. I woke up the next morning... to find out Zac died in his sleep. Every day feels like a dream, like it's not real. The pain is so deep, I can't breathe at times. A part of me died that day he died. He was my soul mate, the one person who could get me through anything.. My heart and soul feels like there is a huge hole in it. They say that time heals... but every second feels longer and longer without my Zac. Every day feels like an eternity without him

He will always forever be in my heart. He has 5 children, 3 grandchildren whom he adopted, when he married me the year of 2001. I have two children who he adopted as his own. I only remember him as being such a great husband, grandfather, father, and worked very hard all his life.

  • I lost the most wonderful husband any woman would be proud to have, two weeks ago today in a Memorial Day weekend get away at a lake. I feel as if my heart sunk along with him. We spent a total of 4 years together and 2 married and they were the most happiest times of my adult life. He left me a little angel of 8 months to care and love for.. If it was not for him I don't know how I could go on. People keep telling me time will ease my pain, yet each day it hurts more and more.. what I wouldn't give to hear him tell me that he loved me one more time. My heart and soul are simply shattered. I'm Christian and I do believe God will reunite us one day. Until then, I will cherish the amazing life and love we shared and promise to raise our son to be a great man like him. My prayers are with you all and god bless.

    Life together was like breathing, it was so natural,
    2010 Steve got sick, had stomach cancer, lost so much weight, but after the operation of removing his stomach, Steve seen this as a 2nd chance and he BEAT the cancer without the post chemo
    We made plans, had dreams,.
    While Steve went to work on 18th April, I carried on with my normal duties in the home, went to bed
    Then little did I know I was to be waken up by a phone call from Steve's company to say he was in terrible pain, and I needed to be there as soon as possible.
    With one look at Steve I knew he was going to hospital, and He wasn't coming home again.
    unfortunately I was right, and Steve was to be taken away from me and my son on April 20th 2012.
    Today 15th June I still cannot accept that STEVE IS NOT coming back home.
    Every day for 37 years I have spoken to him, we were a team united we thought until our old age.
    Steve was 51. Not ready to leave me or this world.
    I will never get over this, I feel lost, broken, and frightened.
    I love and miss you so much Steve, Good Bye until was are reunited again (I know you are just keeping the bed warm for me).

  • My beautiful husband Ronnie died 5 weeks ago, 26 May 2012 was the day my world fell apart. He was only 55 and we have 4 gorgeous kids together and we were married for 33 years. he went to work on Friday as normal, came home, watched the football and went to bed, all the normal things he did on Friday night. In the early hours of Saturday morning he made a kind of coughing / spluttering sound I asked him if he was OK and he lifted his head up and I thought I was waking him up from his sleep, the next morning I couldn't wake him up. I will live with the regret that I didn't call emergency straight away, and wondering if I could have saved him. I wish I could say I'm sorry and thank him for being the most amazing husband and father we could have ever wanted. He was the most beautiful person, and my heart breaks everyday I wake up without him. How do you ever get over the loss? I don't think I will ever get over losing him. I will love you forever babe xxx

  • It's been six years now since I lost my beloved husband, Wesley. We found out Dec. 2005 he had cancer and he passed away Nov. 3, 2006. He was everything to me. My best friend, lover, companion. We did everything together. We told each other "I love you" so many times that last year that he was sick. But we never really talked about his dying. I don't think I ever really thought that he would die. I couldn't let myself think it. He dropped from 140 lbs to 98 lbs. Even when the ambulance came I thought he'd be ok. I believe he died as he was being carried out of our home. The memory of his death is as clear today as the day he passed away. I don't know when grief ends if it ever does. I miss him every day. Still, I can only take comfort in knowing that I will see him again with our Lord.

  • I meet him at the age of 14, I fell in love and from the beginning of our relationship he told me we will get married as soon as I turned 18 (he is 3 years older than me), we had fun growing up and living with adventures, he was the best thing that ever happened to me. No matter what I did or I said he supported me no matter what. He was the sweetest thing, not just to me but everyone, 2 weeks before I turned 18 he proposed and of course I said yes. We got married 2 months later. We planned everything fast but it was the best day of my entire life. We got married on our 3 year anniversary. I honestly was a very happy person for once. I loved his family, my family loved him and we were great. We celebrated our 1 year as married in universal studios. A month after that he started feeling sick and started losing weight, he didn't want to go to the Dr. One morning he woke up feeling sick and throwing up telling me he was dying , I rushed him to the ER, 3 days after being there the diagnosed him with leukemia m4/m5. After 2 rounds of chemo and 3 long weeks in the hospital, He feel asleep in death, it's now been 5 months and I still can't believe it , I love him and miss him. Everything has gone down hill from here. At age 19 as a widow already it kills me to know I wont see him again anytime soon, but I know I will some day due to the promise we have in Revelation 21:4. I'm so heart broken, I wish things were the way they were before.

  • I lost my husband last year on the September 4th 2011. Family and friends always tell me to pray to God so that he can help me. Somehow I can't pray to God to help me. I don't know why but I just can't. Right after when my husband passed, I've been doing stupid things in my life just to ease the pain I have in my heart. The fact that he's not with me and our kids. Every time when I go to work, I just smiled but when I come home alone, I just break down and started to cry for him. Looking at our little son feeling sorry for him that he will be growing up without a father and it just breaks my heart. I just missed him so much. missing him will be like a scar that will be with me till I meet him again.

  • On June 22, 2012, My sweet husband left me, and our 3 sons while we were all sleeping. He was only 30 years old. I woke up to find him not in our bed. I walked into the living room and found him on the floor. I tried to wake him, until I noticed he was not breathing. I checked for a pulse, but nothing. I rolled him to his back, found blood and vomit in his mouth. I did CPR, called 911, and slowly watched him turn blue, become colder, and I prayed so hard to God to give him back. He died from a seizure. My healthy strong gifted handsome man, is gone forever. I can never hold him, kiss him, talk to him again. I get so angry at people who tell me things will get better. Life without hearing his voice to tell me he loves me, aren't "things" that just get better. I love him, I love the sons we have, I need him. I am so alone. Baby, I love you, wait for me on the other side, be there with me the moment I die.

  • I lost my husband, my soulmate, my best friend and my better half May 9, 2012 due to a car accident. A 20 yr old crossed 3 lanes, went over a center divider and struck his car head on while he was on his way to work to provide for his family. He was 30 yrs old, we had been together for 11 1/2 yrs since we were 19 and have a 4 yr old son that looks identical like his father. The day the police gave me the terrible news was the worst day of my life !!! We had soooo many plans ahead of us that will go unfinished. I miss him soooo much, my heart aches so bad words could never explain the pain I feel. When he left me he also took me with him. Life is just not the same without him its been 3 months and the pain feels worse. I feel so lost and confused, he was my rock, my everything. I know I have to be strong for my son but it's so hard when I'm dying inside. My life has been turned upside down and I don't know what to do. I miss him so much and I long to be with him !!!

    Steve was my whole world, I didn't realize just how much I loved him, how much I needed him, you hear someone say "You don't know what you have until its gone" those words are so true, but it still hurts more today than when it happened, it won't get better because I can never hold that precious man, I can never tell him just how much we loved him, how, with his love he changed my life forever and I thank him everyday for choosing me, I thank him everyday for giving me our 9 yr. old son, if I didn't have that part of my Steve, I don't know if I could endure this pain, but I look at Gage and I see his father and I thank him and God, I know I have to keep it together....I love you Stephen, thank you for listening.

  • I lost my Scott on July 11, 2012 after a 6 month battle with lung cancer. He was only 52. We would have been married 20 years next March. As others have said, we never really talked about dying too much because no matter how sick he got, we kept thinking we had more time. I thought, though, that watching him die and become sicker would make his death easier to bear. It did not. At least when he was sick, he was there with me. I am grateful he is not in pain, but his excruciating pain has transferred to me. My heart is broken and I know there will always be a hole. I thank goodness for our 2 sons because they are my only reason for getting out of bed each morning.

I have learnt that I am not the only enduring the loss of a soul mate. It is my hope that one day we will be together again.

  • The love of my life died in October 2011, the day before Halloween. The anniversary is approaching, but I don't feel as if any healing has taken place. I have days where I've cried 7 hours straight. Most days I can't bring him up without crying, yet he's the only thing I want to talk about. Our children are the world to me. Part of the world is missing now, a gaping wound that never heals. I can't imagine a day when I'll want to date anyone. Roger was Mr. Perfect, how can I settle for anything less. Like in the poem, just a kiss on the cheek and to know he's in a better place where I will be with him again. That one last goodbye would help the healing perhaps.

  • I lost my husband of 28 years on July 10,2012. It was our son's 24th Birthday. As most couples, We had our up and downs but We still loved one another after all these years. He had been in the Hospital in Oct. 2011 for 3 weeks and nine months later he died. He had a Doctors appointment the morning he died because he hadn't been feel well. I'm still waiting for the final Death Cert. to find out why he died.
    There's not a day that goes by that I miss him and my heartaches. For 28 years he was the love of my life and life just isn't the same without him.

  • My kind hearted husband died nearly 2 months ago. He was battling with cancer for 9 years. During these years he had lots of chemo, radiotherapy and on special diet, but In November 2011 things started to get worst and he keep getting strong severe pain at the bottom of his spine. He went through 10 hours operation which end up leaving him paralyzed from the waist downward. He had cares coming 4 times a day and me taking over after they finished. Although we kind of expect that one day, his illness will take him but not this quick. Now that he is dead the anger and pain stays with me. I miss him so much and praying for him all the time. He left me very lonely and I still find it hard to come to terms with it. May God bless him in heaven.

  • Oh nice to share experience with people who have gone through such a terrible experience like I did nearly 2 years ago. I lost my lovely husband on 11th November 2011 to brain failure which he suffered in only one day. He was just 32 years, I have failed to understand how a brain can kill someone in one day, but what to do. Since then I have failed to understand life, we had been married for only 3 years and had 2 children. I feel robbed of life but must move on for the sake of my children, I believe one day I will see life differently through God. For all who have gone through it, may God comfort you!!

  • I lost my best friend my husband my everything 9 months ago. We were together for 27 years. The hospital ER released him October 2,2011 with blood sugar of 40. He went into shock from eating and never got out of the Coma. He passed away Dec 30 2011 and Life will never be as good with out him. Had the hospital evaluated him with his eating and blood sugar I believe he would be alive today. How careless of a hospital to do to anyone.

  • The love of my life of 5 years, Michael passed away on June 28, 2012 from a massive heart attack. He just turned 45 years old. There were never symptoms and it was the worst day of my life when the Dr. told me he had passed. There were so many words left unsaid. It has been 14 1/2 weeks and the heartache and tears do not ease. He took part of me with him and I wish this was all a bad dream. This is reality now living my life without him and I pray every night that he will visit me in my dreams. Love you always my big handsome bear, you will always be my honey bear.

  • My husband passed away just over 3 weeks ago. Saturday Sept. 22, 2012 at 10:56 pm. He had a disc replacement surgery on Sept. 18, and was home the afternoon of Sept. 19. I woke up on Friday morning to my son 7 year old son asking to watch TV. When I rolled over, he was not breathing and had no pulse. I immediately dialed 911, and started CPR waiting for EMT's. As soon as they got there, I told them to do whatever they could if he had any chance. They got his heart started back up, and oxygen going through him. We waited until the next day to find out that he never breathed on his own, and had no brain or body activity. I had to let him go, because his wishes always were no resuscitation at all. That was the hardest thing I've ever done. My husband and I were married for 7 years, together for 8. We have 2 amazing strong boys who have totally been my inspiration to keep going. My husband will forever live on in them. He will always be my soul mate.

  • I lost the love of my life, soul mate and best friend of 10 years in a motorbike accident on 29th May 2012. It's been 5 months and I feel like it's been an eternity since I've seen his beautiful face. The pain I feel is unbearable, a huge part of me died on that day and I am left with a hole in my soul. I miss his laugh, his voice, his support, his cuddles, our chats, the way he loved me unconditionally and I him. I think of him every second and all the things that we will never get a chance to do together. My life was shattered on that day and I feel that I will never be happy again. What I wouldn't give to see him one last time to tell him how much I love him. There will never be anyone else, one day we will be together again. I know you are waiting for me.

  • I lost my husband, on October 19th, 2012. Less than 3 weeks ago. My heart aches and my sorrow goes to the core of my soul. We were soul friends, we worked together daily...our love was deep. We had been married 27 years, and together 30. He was an amazing man, that made me feel his love for me, everyday. His death was sudden. A pulmonary embolism, it happened so quickly, in a day that started like any other ordinary day...I feel lost right now...some days good, some days bad...I want to have joy in my heart, for having had such a special relationship, but how can one not, be rocked by a loss like this?? I know I am not the only one, because I see the other unfair life can be...but I guess I need to cling to the wonderful times and try to fill my heart with the wonderful memories of the life I had with him..."Always & Forever" to you, my dear Ted <3

  • I lost my husband at 55 years old on 10/7/12. We were married for 31 years and had no children. We were best friends and did everything together. It was exactly 1 1/2 years from the time he was diagnosed with cancer. That disgusting disease that destroys so many lives. I don't know how I'll go on without him. I hate to wake up and realize he's gone. It would be easier to just die instead of having to think about it and feel the pain every day. I now live in the house alone that we moved into earlier this year, He never got to enjoy the house or his recent retirement. I'm left with nothing but shattered dreams. I want to go home with him. Nothing on earth can ever make me happy again.

  • My darling Harry passed 18 months ago. Harry died the way most men would like to die. Sat in his own chair, having enjoyed a lovely day and watching his beloved Manchester United on the TV. I was only in the next room and when I came in to see how the football was going, I glanced over to his chair and he seemed to have fallen asleep. I walked over slowly to talk to him and even though he just looked like he was asleep with his eyes closed I sensed straight away that something was wrong. I just stood for a while and called his name, but I knew then that I had lost him. So glad it was so easy for him, but so very very hard for me. I loved him so so much and what is my life all about now. Good night God Bless my love.

  • My husband died suddenly from cardiac arrest on March 4, 2012 at 40 years old, 5 days before our daughter's 9th birthday. We also have a 17 year old daughter and my two-step children, ages 17 and 23.
    The day my husband left this world the way we know it, my heart and life was shattered into pieces. He was my all and all, the love of my life and the man I dreamed of marrying since I was a little girl. Gone so soon because we had so many hopes and dreams that we prayed to come true for all of years together. Life without him seems meaningless, how do I carry on. I try to smile and be normal but inside I feel as empty as someone who haven't eaten or been fed in years. He was the man of my house, the one who inspired me and our kids to love God despite our struggles as a family. His smile, laughter, humor, unconditional love and handsome face is a constant memory which I hold onto. This new life isn't what I expected for me or wanted but God knows best. I will strive everyday to live in peace knowing that one day we will meet again and be together for eternity. I love you with every breath I take baby! Miss you to pieces Jamel Tarver!

  • My husband, Frank, of 40 years passed away of cardiac arrest on November 3, 2012. He had been quite ill for over a year and a half with heart, lung and kidney disease. I left my job to be home as his full-time healthcare nurse. I had promised him that as long as there was breath in my body, I would not let him go to a nursing home. The day he died was very uneventful. He had become totally bedridden, so we would spend our days watching TV or listening to music. He hadn't been able to walk on his own for quite a while, so I would assist him to the bathroom in the wheelchair. As I helped him stand up from the chair, he started to fall backwards and as much as I tried to stop him from falling, I couldn't. I put a pillow under his head, covered him with a blanket and called 911. As I was on the floor holding his head, he kept saying "help me" and then all of a sudden he stopped talking. He never spoke again. The pain of his loss is getting worse very day.

He was my husband, lover and my best friend and an amazing father to our 14 year old son and 10 year old daughter. We are just totally devastated, not a day or second goes by when I don't think of him, my heart is broken in to tiny pieces and I don't know how or if I will ever get over this.

I'll never forget the feeling when the police showed up at my door and said he had been on a head on collision and didn't make it. I don't know how I function, but I think it's only for the kids. I miss him so much, and it hurts so bad. We're a young family. He loved his kids so much, and won't ever get to hold his youngest. It kills me to think about it.

  • Tomorrow will be 1 month since my amazing husband passed away with his family at his side. It was all so surreal in the end. For at least a month before his death, I knew that he was getting a bit worse every day. I was so busy fighting for his life, that I did not take the time to acknowledge all that - I was SCARED to face the truth. Even so, I had hope that the little setbacks would right themselves the next day. My sweet husband was such a proud man that if he knew he was slipping away he did not tell us. I know he did not want us to worry at all. Now I wish he had told us, so we could have just spent the time together processing it all together. But it did not happen. The last few days of his life was spent in the hospital with my children and I at his side. The night before he passed, I saw the pain my husband was in. He also became agitated in his actions, maybe from pain. We took him to Palliative care, and he did not last long there.

    He became very ill quite quickly. After only one chemo treatment, he took a turn for the worse on September 10, 2013 and suffered for 5 days. It was a horrible ordeal to watch him suffer every day. We were only together 12 years and I feel so cheated. My world is turned upside down and I don't know how to go on without him. He was the love of my life. My lover, my partner, my strength, and my best friend besides being my husband.

  • My darling, sensitive and kind husband, father and stepfather - Frank Carrick (the gang leader) passed away 4 days ago. He knew he was ill, and kept saying how much pain he had, he said he was dying and he was right. At first the doctors couldn't find out what was wrong. Four MRIs and 2 CAT scans later, 3 weeks before he died they found the tumor in his face, eye, skull, brain and lungs. The histology confirmed it only 24 hours before he died. He was so so brave and strong. He got his wish, to die at home in his bed with his children and family around. I held his hand and told him his time had come. He was only 63 and I am 49. Like others, the feeling of overwhelming loss and sadness is so immense it is so hard to carry on, but reading your stories helped me to feel that I am not alone and like you, I just hope my shattered heart will slowly mend. Faith is massively important to me and I hope and pray that God will guide and help me to be strong until I meet my lovely Frank once more.

We would have been married 32 years this year. My life will never be the same without him. He was here one day and gone the next leaving me no time to say Good-bye. It is so hard to live with this hole in my heart. I wonder if there will ever be a day that my tears will dry. My love will grow forever stronger for him and I am no longer afraid of death as I know we will be together once again.
