Sympathy Poem

I wrote this poem when my exboyfriend lost his little brother.

The Loss Of A Loved One

© Kenya. H
The loss of a love one is so hard to face,
you just want to hide,
go somewhere and escape!
But death is something,
we all must go through,
I know it’s hard,
when it’s someone you loved and knew.

Just know now,
he is in a better place,
no more hurt or pain shall he face.
It seems unfair and yes this is true,
but he is in Heaven now
watching over me and you!

God has called him home to rest!!
And he’s being well taken care of
Because God knows best!

  • Six years ago on the 13th of October I lost my sister and best friend from cancer. Why is it that people say in time thinks will heal the pain I feel because to me it just seems to get harder and harder. I hate it when I got that call that morning to go to the hospital that it was the end. But I now I will always have a piece of her in my heart and will always have the memories that we have made in the past. Plus I have her five very wonderful kids to help me with this we share the stories about her how she was such a great person. But I know I have to stay strong for them but it hard at times because she was such a loving and caring person. But there is one way that I think of her this is something my grandma would always say to me when you lose someone they are still here because God sends them in angel form to watch over us all and to keep us safe. So at night when the stars come out it's them watching us making sure we are safe and when the wind blows it is them giving us a kiss.

  • I lost my sister nearly 6 years ago on 21st December to anorexia aged 19. I have only just got past the shock part and am now faced with still very raw grief. It gets harder for me the longer she has been gone.. would be nice to chat to others who have lost a sibling and a best friend. She is my angel in the stars although we all want her here so much.. :'(

  • I lost my son when he was month old. I still love and miss him so much that I cry everyday about his loss. Sometimes it helps to be around people because when I am I alone I think of him and start asking myself questions like why God took him so young, does he love me or know the pain I am going through?

  • My Son was being overworked and trying to get through the day, maybe he was rushing, but there was a problem with the seatbelt on the forklift he was working on. There are rumors that he was driving it with the forks up which is a no no. He was just finishing up for the day when tragedy struck, his forklift tipped over. There was no safety cage to save him. I know he must have tried to jump to save himself, instead he was crushed to death. I don't believe what I've been told, that he didn't know what was happening because it happened so fast. I can hear his last words, ''''oh f....''''. Today is 4 years and his birthday, and it doesn't get much easier, I don't care what anyone says.

  • I lost my sister 1 year ago on December 23rd 2012 during a operation and mistake by a doctor. I have her 3 year old daughter now to heal that pain. But my eyes always try to find her in crowe, my ears always try to listen her voice in noises. As I'm a boy I can't cry in front of someone but when I had been alone I can't stop my tears and that's why my family members think that I don't miss her, now how can I tell them that I lost everything of my life?

  • I lost someone very special back in October 2013. Our story is a tragic one, and one I still can't come to terms with. The best way to describe Ali, was that he was my good friend, turned partner. He had been diagnosed with cancer of the esophagus, but he had told me he was in remission. I fell pregnant by him in April. I was so excited, in my mid thirties I felt the baby was a miracle, especially as I always believed conceiving a child would be difficult. When I told Ali he distanced himself somewhat and although I understood that he wasn't in the best of health, I couldn't understand his reaction. We decided to go out for breakfast and discuss the baby. I knew he wanted me to terminate it, so I blew up at him and said the most awful things. I went away and booked a termination, I wasn't in a position to look after a baby on my own. I had the abortion and didn't speak to him after that. Five months later in October I had a call to say Ali had passed away.

  • My elder brother was murdered in front of me by a greedy person around five months ago. After he was critically wounded, he saved our mother as she was next to be stabbed. Then our mother saved me from that cruel freak. Now, my grandparents, parents and I are alive seems like just to mourn for our loss. At times it's unbelievable that we won't get to see him ever again.

  • My sister Karen and I aren''t that close But when she last visited I found myself crying over her leaving. I remember really needing my big sister but we lived so far apart, never knew she was sick until now, she has cancer they say incurable and now I just think about who she shared this with because it wasn't me, but I would have been there for her if she asked me. But she never did and I ache for her more then she will ever know, I watched my mom die and it was really hard nobody ever asked me if I was ok I'm still not ok can I watch my sister die I don't think I'm strong enough. She smiled the last time she was here do I want to remember that or remember her in the hospital in pain. Karen I wish we where close but it doesn't matter I love you with all my heart, your sister Lori.
