Uncle Death Poems

Poems about the Death of an Uncle

Uncles have a special role. Not being our father, they can be a friend and a supporter in a different way than anyone else in our lives. They are both a relative and a companion; one of the few people able to be both. Whether they are crazy and weird and only seen at holidays or our fishing buddy and mentor, the loss of an uncle is a particularly hard one. Their loss, however, is filled with the years of happy memories we had, and that special connection that belongs only to uncles.

Tribute Poem To Uncle
  • By Chelsea M. Smeltzer
  • Published: February 2006
The Day God Took You

It was the shocking news, that brought tears to my eyes. And you made me remember what it was like to cry. On that dreadful day, God decided it was your time, your time to go, so He took your life away,
And everyone felt the pain, the pain that you had been suffering for so long. It's harder than I ever thought life could be without you. So the family will always think of you, And we will always know that you'll be looking down on us keeping us safe making sure every thing goes okay in our lives, making sure that we live a good life just like you did until the day that God decided that it was your time to go and we cried as the rain fell that day.
Little drops of rain, whisper of the pain, tears of love lost in the days gone by. I hope you were watching the day the family gathered around your casket to see you lying there cold faced with the look of happiness on your face knowing that we were all there to show you that we cared a lot about you no matter how much you think we didn't care. But the day we gathered around your cold faced body proved we cared.
We still sit here and think about you at your daughters wedding. She really wished you could be there so we took a minute of silence in memory of you....

I Miss You

there's a feeling in my skin, one that I can't ignore.
I hate waking up in the morning, without you knocking on our door.
I miss the way when you smiled, you lit up the whole night sky.
I miss the way you taught me, to never at all be shy....
