Loss Poems

Poems of Loss

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.

Best Friend's Death Poem
Who Would You Be Today?

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...

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....

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.

Molded By My Pain

A pain so deep inside of me that no one will ever see,
I take the pain and lock it up and throw away the key.
Because if I take this pain out of the bottle for you to see,
You would not know the one you know because I'm not even me....
