Death of Husband Poems

Husbands are, for many wives, their source of comfort, love, joy, and companionship. Many wives consider their husband to be their confidant and best friend. To lose the man they have relied on for so long can be utterly devastating. For those who have not experienced the loss of a husband, it is impossible to understand the depth of the pain a wife feels. It is a pain so deep, the human mind only comes to accept the harsh reality gradually. Widows and her supportive friends and family can honor their loved one by recounting a kind gesture or amusing stories involving him.
