Eternal Love

I stand alone on the sandy beach
my tears flowing into the sea
because I know you're out of reach
and no longer here with me

You looked so handsome laying there
In eternal sleep forever
The pain I hide is too much to bare
I want us to be together

But I am needed on this lonely land
for a little longer at least
to help and guide the people I love
giving them reassurance and peace

so I'll be on the shoreline here
to cry more tears over you
On your birthday every year
to celebrate our love so true

Until it's time to meet once more
to hold and love one another
as we did all those years ago
when I was your friend and lover.

I lost my fiance, Bart, 6 years ago today on October 31st, which was also our anniversary. You don't get over it. You go through it. I am still alone because I choose to be. There is no other. There is no replacement; not a second goes by that I don't think of him.

I lost my fiancé three weeks ago yesterday (July 16, 2018). It was two weeks before we were due to get married (August 1). We had only been together for just over a year, and he was my best friend, soul mate, and love of my life. We knew from day one that we wanted to be together. I miss him so much every day - his hugs, his kisses, his listening ear, and his ability to know what to do in any situation, which is especially needed at this minute. His family has not been kind towards me since his death. They're wanting to claim back everything that was his even though we lived together.

I know how all of you feel. I lost the love of my life a couple years ago, and the pain doesn't get any easier. We were supposed to get married on April 10 of last year. That would have been our 7 year anniversary. After I lost him, I found out I was pregnant, and all I could think was he wanted to leave something special behind, someone who was most likely going to look more like him. On December 5th, I went to my doctor appointment, and I was excited to see my baby. Sadly to say, the doctors couldn't find her heartbeat. So the doctor sent me to the hospital and they induces my labor, and after 5 hours in labor our baby girl was born. She was a stillborn. Not a day goes by where I don't think of both of them. I love you both so much. My babies, you will never be forgotten.

I am 27, and 4 months ago I lost my fiancé. We were engaged to get married New Year's Eve next year. We were together 4 years. But like every couple, we were in a fight and I had went away for a week to my family's but we were talking and just needed space. I was coming home September 2nd and had spoken to him that morning. We were happy we were going to see each other that night, but unfortunately I didn't make it in time to see him. He died half an hour after I had spoken to him. Never got to say my last goodbye or even say I love him because I was supposed to call him right back. The next time I saw him was in a casket. A face I knew but so unfamiliar. The feeling of emptiness, so alone. Baby, I miss you so much, and I will always love you. It gets harder every day. Until we meet again.

I too lost my fiancé 6 months ago due to an overdose. We have two boys and he had one from a previous relationship. I miss him beyond words. I miss kissing him, hugging him, talking to him. He was my absolute best friend in the world. I wish I could kiss him just once more. I don't know how I will ever be able to move on and love again after him. He made me feel loved and beautiful. He brought me so much joy. We will love him forever.

I lost my fiancé to an accidental overdose:(. My fiancé of 4 years and 11 months. He left me and his 2 beautiful Daughters. At the time, age 11 months and 2 years old.
May 21, 2015 was the absolute worst day of my life. I received THAT call and I went crazy! The world came crashing down. My one and only was gone.
When I got back home my oldest daughter started asking questions. "Why did my daddy kill himself" "where is my dad"? I could only respond by saying, your dad did not kill himself, it was an accident and he is now in heaven. She Broke my heart:(.
It's been 8 months since he passed and I feel the same pain as the first day:(. Never will it go away. We will only learn to live with it. My oldest daughter still asks for him and it's the worst feeling, she won't understand. When I say he's in heaven, she asks me to take her to heaven to see him only a little while:(. I just dont know what to say to my little girl anymore:(. Its hard. It will forever be hard.
I will forever love him

I know how y'all feel! I just lost my boyfriend almost two weeks ago! I just don't understand why he had to leave me! He was the sweetest person you could meet! But my love has gone away, and my life hasn't been the same since! I don't know why I'm going to do without him! He was all that I had.

I lost my boyfriend when I was 18 years old and today it still hurts at the age of 22. I don't think I could ever love anyone like I loved him. I break down on the day of his death. What hurts the most is seeing his pictures and visiting his family when they talk about him.

I am currently 18 and I recently lost my boyfriend on July 14th of this year. He was in a car accident on his way to work. His traveling partner was also involved in the incident and is still undergoing hospital care. I'm not sure how these work but if you could give me any advice on how to cope and make myself come to a realization of him being gone, please do. I'm also so sorry about your loss and I wish I could explain the hurt I'm feeling because I know you feel it too.

I lost my boyfriend to a senseless act of violence 3 weeks ago on March 13, an accidental gun shot to the head. It's just so unbelievable. We were together for 3 years. He was so young, he had his whole life to live, he was only 15. I was talking to him an hour before the shooting & it's just unbelievable. He was supposed to be my forever. He killed me when he left. I'm just in such deep depression, so lost I'm just helpless without him.. I wish I was dead to just to be with him, people say to " keep your head up" or "it's going to be okay" but in reality we can not keep our head up losing someone so close "okay " doesn't even seem like an option anymore.. It's just hard to take a heavy lost like this..

I miss my ex-husband so much that it's killing me. After his death, I got ill. I had very weak pains in my chest and felt like I was dying. I went to see my doctor, and he ran blood work. When I called for blood results, he told me I have lupus. Grieving could kill me!! Nobody understands how much I love him. This pain is very painful. I am hurting so bad, and it won't stop. I miss my baby, my papa. l am tired. I want all this hurting to stop.

I lost my love in a horrible car accident on October 28th, 2014. I am going through the worst time in my life. He was my bestfriend and he made being in Alberta a lot easier on me since all my family and friends live in Manitoba. Now my bestfriend is gone and I'm left here in so much pain. He asked me to have his baby and he told me I was beautiful every day!!! Every single day! We had so much fun together him and I. I miss his smell, his walk, his talk, his smile, his broad shoulders, his tattoos, his laugh, he did the best impressions ever he always made me laugh so hard. I seen him 3 hours before he passed and I never thought for one second that it would be my last time seeing him. I'm so hurt and lost, my days are filled with crying and anxiety and helplessness....I'm happy he didn't die alone though his buddy Ricky passed in the car accident as well. I miss my lover so much but life must go on as much as I don't want it to. This pain is unexplainable and I sometimes think I won't make it but Ryan would want me to go on.

Last month on the 9th of September 2014 I lost a very dear person, A wonderful, beautiful soul. He recently bought a new car and crashed with a truck on his way back to where he worked. On the 10th of October it would have been his 32nd birthday :( I miss him so much, I miss his cooking, I miss his braai, I miss his laugh and smile and most of all miss the way we got crazy when together. Where there was me and him it would be jokes and laughter, we were entertainers. I miss him so badly it hurts. Since he passed on I've been sick and lost 10 pounds.. I can't eat I just still can't believe he's no more. I miss drinking wine with him and laugh the night away! He will always be in my heart <3

I loss my boyfriend to suicide 3 months ago and the pain of the loss is beyond excruciating. Even though we were only together for 8 months I felt like we could have been together forever. I wish he knew how much I needed him in life and that I am a lost, hollow soul without him. I feel like a huge piece of me was buried with him.

Reading this broke me. My boyfriend of 7 years recently committed suicide. We had lost our baby then I lost him. This has been so difficult accepting. My life feel apart when I woke up and found him. I don't understand how a man full of life and person who was loved by everyone could go to that extreme. I sit wishing I could just hold him and tell him how much I love and need him. I now must wait till we reunite, what an ugly feeling knowing the man my mind, body, soul can not let go of. I LOVE YOU DADDY

I lost my boyfriend on Monday 16 December 2013. He was attacked by armed robbers in a park. They hit him with an iron rod in the head, cracking his scull. I was so heartbroken. Up till now, its so hard to fathom the fact that he is never coming back again. He was so young, only 20 years old. But l have no regrets at all. I always told him I will love him till the end and I did just that. I never took him for granted but I miss him so much. He made me believe that true love existed. But I'm still hurting so much inside

My boyfriend of 6 years died in a car crash about 2 months ago. I'm absolutely heartbroken. But reading some of your stories about people dying in car accident amazes me. I can't believe there's so many tragic car accidents in the world. Life is seriously not worth living without him been by my side x

I lost my boyfriend 3 weeks ago (on Labor Day), we was coming to visit me, but he decided to reschedule our date, I got mad at him, when he said he loved me I just said "mhm" .. He was going back home that night, and he had a terrible car crash and passed away! He was 24! I feel so bad because I didn't tell him that I loved him one last time. It eats me up inside! All my dreams included him! We were talking about marriage and raising a family! Now that he's gone, I am left with a broken heart and shattered dreams.. I don't know how to live without him and I don't want to.. To top it all off, my family is not being supportive of my feelings. I feel so alone! I need him so bad right now. I want him to comfort me. :'(

I lost someone who was an angel in this world. He was a people person and much loved. It was just a week ago when I spoke to him. We had a fight and I was so mad when I left his house. Yesterday I was with my friends having fun outside my home, I went home and texted him and but he didn't reply. I told myself he must be busy. When his mom called I felt like she was going to tell me he was sleeping or that he's not at home. Instead she told me that he was gone. I thought she was joking. I sat down, completely confused and shocked, "what now what am going to do?" I lost my soul mate, a friend, and the father to my 2 year old baby boy.

A few years ago I lost the lover of my life. He was killed in Cape Town while I was at home in the Eastern Cape. The painful part is that I couldn't go to his funeral because I didn't know that he was dead. I kept on calling him on his phone not knowing that he was no more. I couldn't stop calling his phone while his phone was off for about a week. I only heard about his death the following week after his funeral. I can't get over that till now. I miss him so much.

I read this and break down. I just lost my boyfriend in a car crash 2 months ago. I ask God why, why would he take him at such a young age. He was only 16, he didn't even get to finish high school. Why, would God take away such a young man, everyone loved him! He always had a smile on his handsome face.. I miss you more and more each and everyday. I know one day I'll be able to see you again Mo. You will forever be in my heart. #79. <3 I love you

My boyfriend died about 3 months ago. He died by accidentally touching the live wire from their roof. We were on a fight and decided to talk on Monday. But Saturday midnight, he died already. I didn't even got the chance to see him for the last time. To talk to him, to hold him, to kiss and hug him. My whole life and dreams got shattered into a million pieces. But now I'm trying my very best to put it all back into pieces. I'll always carry you in my heart Nathan. I miss you, everyday.

I lost a special friend! We wanted long term even at our age (50's) known him such a short time, 3 and half months, felt he was the ideal guy! Too many people saying things caused me to be cautious! We did a lot, went to supernatural convention and hung out! Very short time with intimacy! Laughed a lot! I miss him very much and having his friend (ex-girlfriend) telling me to move on! It is still less than a month since he past and I just cannot let him go! He will always be a part of me! I miss you Jeff! Your true friend, Denise

I lost the love of my life in March 2010 and I haven't been the same. I lost my best friend, my whole world. Not a day goes by that I don't think of him especially since his birthday is next week. I'm just waiting to be able to get to see him again in heaven.

My boyfriend just took his own life two weeks ago. Me and him were soulmate and were engaged to be married within the next few years. I never expected him to take his own life at all. He was always so happy and fun loving until he got mixed in with the wrong crowd. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about him and wonder why he would ever do this. I love you baby.... I miss you more than words can explain <3

The person I cared about most my boyfriend met with an accident and died. I wasn't there with him, he died in another country. I don't know how to move on without him, life seems so hard, like nothing matters. It hurts so much that he will never be with me again to see him lying there motionless is something I don't know how to handle because that's not the person I know that's so full of life. We will never be able to do any of the things we talked about. I would do anything to see, hear and be with him and to tell him how much I love and care for him. I love you baby wherever you are.

My boyfriend has a terminal illness and he has about 3 years left, reading this poem just reminded me that soon I'll have to watch the man I love die. I can't even bare the thought of having to see him lying there motionless in a coffin, knowing that he will never again open those beautiful eyes of his and look at me with the love he does now. And that I'll never see that silly smile of his when he teases me, I don't know how I'm going live without him in my life. He is my soulmate and no man can ever/will ever replace him in my heart.

It has been almost a year since the one I loved passed away there is nothing that I wouldn't do or give to see or hear from him again, to hold him and tell him how much I love him. Being with him I felt complete like I didn't want or need for anything else in this world. Now at present I just feel empty sometimes I think about all the dreams we used to share. I lost my best friend the only person who knew me. What hurts me other than losing him is that he died with no one by his side and the hospital didn't report him dead to his family till the following day and that I was too late to see him.
