Husband Death Poem

Losing My Husband

I am 22. My husband was 25 when he died very unexpectedly. It literally took my breath away, and I have felt lost ever since. We would always tell one another, "I love you till the casket closes," but once he passed, I realized the literal meaning behind those words. Though I feel that I have been going through the motions, I have now turned to writing, one thing that has never failed me.

A Love That's Forever

Published by Family Friend Poems March 2018 with permission of the Author.

I love you.
I love you too, until the casket closes.
But when your casket closes,
Where should my love then go?

We started with young love,
Amazed at how far that went.
I valued the time we had,
The good and bad moments spent.

Weathered through the storms,
Beat all kinds of odds.
I promise to keep your love with me,
Even when your spirit sits with God.

I love you forever,
A promise we both made.
Now that you're gone and I'm here,
I'll keep your love for the rest of my days.

Forever is forever,
Even if I'm here alone.
Your love reigns in my heart,
Even though you're really gone.

I love you.
