Husband Death Poems

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.

Poem About Moving On After Husband's Death
Moving Forward

I woke up this morning
And reached over for you.
You weren't there, I remembered
Now what will I do?

As I remembered the events
I started to cry
I lift my eyes upward
And scream to the sky

Why did you take him?
What did we do wrong?
We were finally making it
We had tried for so long

As I lay there and think
I remember the times we had
The memories flow
I'm no longer as sad.

A warm feeling spreads through
Like sun on my face
I feel light in body
Like I'm floating in space.

I lay there and wonder
What could the warmth be?
Not something I can touch
And surely not able to see

I picture his hand on mine
Warmth spreads to my fingers
I smile and laugh some
The feeling still lingers

The warmth is him
Letting me know
Everything will be okay
I am never alone

On those cold winter nights
When I long for his touch
When I feel so desperate
I haven't wanted anything so much

He will be there to lift me up
To show me I still have his love
I still have the memories
We always spoke of

As our children grow and learn
They accomplish new things
I can feel his joy
Oh, the warmth that it brings

My memories are great
But his touch is better
When I can't feel it
I just write him a letter

For I know he is watching
He's helping me learn
How to live in the world alone
And for him not yearn

I have felt his touch less
Over the last several days
I have met someone who
Is like him in many ways

He will always be with me
This I've come to believe
But now I have found someone
A new love to receive

I look to the skies
And raise my voice
Is it okay, I ask
And hear a joyful noise

I feel the warmth on my skin
And know that he is near
Not just on the outside
But from somewhere within

He's telling me it's okay
To move on with my life
And not to let it create
Any emotional strife

So, now when I think
The memories are clear
They don't hurt anymore
Because I know he is near

He is in my heart
In our daughter, our son
We weren't separated
Our souls are still one

I place a letter to him
On the stone with his name
Telling him I'm okay
That here he must remain

As I walk to the car
An eagle flies overhead
He tips his wings as if to say
I'm still alive, I am not dead.
