Wife Death Poem

Poem About Losing Who You Are After Wife's Death

My wife died about 14 months ago from brain cancer after 17 years of marriage. It seemed we were just getting to really know one another, though we always loved each other when she got sick. This helps me to cope with the loss in some small way.

Dark Crying

© more by nathan.seeking

Published: July 2011

My eyes no longer wet from the years of struggle and fear,
I exist now only in thought and memory.
My love is gone, 
A shell so cold.
The misery is all that remains and dark crying of my soul,
it mourns the passing,
the passing of the light that was my guiding way.
The love all gone now as a holocaust of my being
and a single question of how.
I want to go back to those years of struggle and pain
and make right the mistakes I made,
but it is all in vain when your love is alive no more.
Oh, my love, how I wish to hold you once again
and press my lips to yours and give you my whole heart
in a way that will satisfy you and the crying in the dark.
Oh, I have lied about my eyes no longer wet.
They shall remain forever yours.
