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.

As I stand gazing out my window I recall,
your Father telling me you won't be with us long.
The trees were beautiful, their leaves the many colours of Fall, some lay already on the ground, I remember our song.

But now I know that was never going to be....

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.

My hands are callused from very hard work to provide clothing, shelter, transportation, food, entertainment and more.
I massaged away your pains and bound your wounds with my hands.
With my arms I embraced you and held you oh so close....
