Poems About Loss Of A Loved One

When we lose something that is precious to us, we are left with a feeling of sadness. Whether it is a precious friend or even a treasured object, the loss can be hard to bear. It is as if a part of you has gone missing. Throughout our life we amass collections of friends and treasured possessions. Having close relationships help us feel as if we are not alone in the world. When we lose someone or something that is precious to us, we may realize that there is a certain aloneness that can never be filled. Ultimately the condition of life is one of being alone before God.

My Mother's Mother

I sat there and watched her, helpless fighting for every breath
The Doctor said she would die today so all of the family left.
My grandfather cried and said I can not leave your side
Although I do not want to see you go, I have to stay to say goodbye.
My love for you has grown into a treasure you can not buy
All of the years I have watched you live now today I watch you die
Please don't leave me baby I don't want to be alone.
I am scared, I have to see you, you make our house a home.
He sat there and watched her as she took her final breath.
Then he folded her arms, crying and kissed her sweet little head.
