One Last Kiss

I have fought the feelings
And emotions inside
That fills and empties me,
Like a fast rolling tide

There are moments of pain
Of sorrow and hate
Leaving me to ponder.
Many hours of late

I love you honey.
It's your presence I miss.
And I terribly long
For that one last kiss

But the greatest pain of all
That hurts me so deep,
Is after giving you my love
I can't have yours to keep

To have you by my side
Always longing for more,
And have you feel the same,
To mutually adore

You see my love; I have given you my heart
And revealed the depths of my soul
And now I am left feeling hopelessly empty,
Paying this immeasurable toll.

It's selfish I know
to feel this way
But it's how I feel,
each and every day

Always hoping and praying
For the next time we meet
For you to allow me, once again
To feel complete

And rest assured
I WILL see you again
For it's not a question of if
But a question of when.

And when that time comes
I'll be in total bliss
For no longer will I wait
For that one last kiss.

I just recently went back to work since I'm in the military, but this particular poem really touched me today. My beautiful wife Shelby died on March 15th, 2015. She just recently turned 30 years old, and we would of been married 8 years in June! She battled Crohn's Disease for the past 6 yrs. I miss her every moment of the day. We were blessed with an amazing 3 year old little boy that makes me want to get out of bed in the morning. I miss her kisses and hugs more than anything. Her smile could light up a room even if she didn't know you. I know one day I will be able to kiss her sweet lips again. I love you my sweet angel!

This poem says exactly what I am feeling. I just lost my wife of 25 years on 4/15/2015 to Ovarian Cancer. She battled it for over 3 years. She was my best friend for so many years and taken way too soon. She was only 47 at the time. We met on my birthday in 1988 and we got married on September 3, 1989. I fell in love with her the moment that we met. She had the most wonderful sense of humor. She loved to travel and see new places but was also happy to just stay home and be with her family. We have two beautiful daughters. Our youngest is expecting our first granddaughter to which it breaks my heart that she will not be able to hold her. But she will be our guardian angel from now on. So until we meet again my sweet Julia, I will long for that "One Last Kiss". Thank you for all the wonderful years we had together. I Love You!

The love of my life went home March 7, 2015. We would have been married 23 years on July 11, 2015. But have been together since September 1985. This poem opened my eyes to the love and respect that we had for each other. I will see Ann again someday, I love you. God Bless Harold Sr.

This is a very much heart touching poem. I went thru the similar phase of my life and I lost my dearest wife on 2/7/15 due to colon cancer. I still can't accept the fact that she is no more with me and still can't let her go.

I lost my wife to cancer a few months ago. She was only 17 years old when we met. I loved her at first sight. Two years later we got married. She was my wife for 52 years. Every day I miss her more and more. She was an inspiration to so many who knew her. She taught me a lot, to be a better person, to be kind and to have compassion. I took care of her during her long illness, every time I hugged her I cried. She would tell me not to cry. But watching her suffer with pain was so hard. I would look into those beautiful blue eyes and see so much pain. My last kiss to her was before she got cremated, she looked so peaceful. There was no more pain and suffering, Rest In Peace Sweetheart. I visit her almost every day as I feel that she's waiting for me to visit her. I still tell her that I miss her dearly and love her.
The Poem really touched my heart and my wishes for the author is to keep strong. Taking care of a loved one during sickness is God's gift, he expect us to take care of the sick.

I love this poem as I continued to read it, tears rolled down my face, as this reached that place. I have lost my life wife and best friend I too have become way to old. She died on 06/27/12 and I have been at a loss for words to explain even to myself just how I feel. This helps me to know that someone else knows how to kneel. So I thank you my friend for allowing me to feel what you feel is real.

On June 7, 2011 I lost my Mom that resided in Fortson, Georgia. She has been my angel and continues to be even though she has gone on to heaven. Bob my Dad is grieving so hard and long. They were high school sweethearts and had a very good long long marriage. Thank God for sending Mom to Dad that day. She loved cats, life, and nature AND my DAD. May she watch over life until God calls us home. I love and miss you so much!!
I love and miss you.
