Wife Death Poems

Death of Wife Poems

When we take our vows and say, “until death do we part,” we are lying to ourselves. Death only brings a physical departure. A marriage and the bond between a husband and wife make two people into one. That means that even when we lose a wife, we are still left with that special love that burns inside and never dies. That internal love burns on even if our wife is no longer with us. Clinging to that love inside of us, even if it can never be physically expressed, should carry us and sustain us in her passing.

And emotions inside
That fills and empties me,
Like a fast rolling tide

There are moments of pain
Of sorrow and hate
Leaving me to ponder.
Many …

When I had you I was afraid to die

As I stand gazing out my window I recall,

But now I know that was never …

I found my lady dying
Lying across our bed
I pulled her to me gently
And kissed her sweet forehead
And she was gone

She was the only woman I …
