Loss Poems

Poems for 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.

That it can not be summarized in words you simply can write
A pain that touches your toes and up to the top of the ceiling
You can't eat, you can't sleep, that is the pain that I am feeling...

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 Lost Love

I remember the time
When you would bring home chocolates you'd received at school
Just so that you could give them to me
And watch me smile.

Words Can't Explain How Much I Miss You!!!

I don't think that you ever imagined how much pain I would be in once you were gone,
Because if you had; you wouldn't have left me.
Words cannot express the amount of emotions that have come with trying to let you go.
Every day has been a struggle....
