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.

Poem About Remembered Feelings And Choices

Reflections

Remember all those happy days, those times she called our own
In all those well-loved places where you now grieve alone.
And those small endearing gestures, which you thought you knew so well,
Are fading, as time passes, with her words, her kiss, her smell.

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

  • By Colin Jarratt
  • Published: December 2008
The Leaving

Is it truly selfish to want you back again?
I could not calm your mind, I could not ease your pain;
I thought my love would be enough to keep you here with me;
But now I know that was never going to be.

As I stand gazing out my window, I recall
your Father telling me you won't be with us long.
