Wife Death Poem

Hi my name is Kevin and I lost my wife over 6 years ago and I still miss and think of her everyday. She died of breast cancer at the age of 46 leaving behind four children who loved her very much.

Pink Ribbon

They said time would ease the pain
Every day I still feel the same
I wake every morning reaching for you
My pillow soaked with my tears like the morning dew

We were so sure this was something we could beat
Knowing it would be no small feat
The ribbons of pink now mean much more
Just never thought this would come knocking on our door

We fought for more time together
Thinking every day you were getting better
Every day rain or shine seemed to be lined with gold
We still talked of our future plans of growing old

We heard of so many that had survived this
I still remember our last kiss
We thought we could win for sure
Now for others I can only hope for a cure.

  • I lost my fiancé June 2011 to breast cancer, she was only 40. Even after two and a half years there's not a minute that goes by that she's not on my mind or in my thoughts. She was and always will be the love of my life and my best friend, we only had 1 year 10 months and 13 days together but what an honor it was to be in love with her. I miss you so much M.J. Thanks Kevin

  • February 1, 2014 my beautiful wife had just turned 36 years old. We went out to celebrate and had a wonderful time the next morning she wasn't feeling very well. We thought it was from the night before or she got a stomach bug the pain was so intense and after a couple of weeks we seek help. February the 28th my darling wife was diagnosed with stage 3c ovarian cancer. We got her to what we thought was the best Cancer Hospital in the world MD Anderson on Friday March 14th I kiss my wife told her I love her as they were wheeling her into surgery she smiled and said I'll see you in 2 hours but that was not meant to be. She died Monday March 17th 2014 due to complications from the surgery. Leaving behind me and our 8 year old son after 13 years together I'm totally lost with out you sweetheart and I miss and love you so very much.
    Your broken hearted husband Chuck
