Death Of Lover Poem

Death Of A Boyfriend

The pain of losing a lover is not soon forgotten. The pain lingers, and is felt throughout the day, yet we do not seek to let go of this pain, for within it lies the memory of the one who has passed. This is my poem. I lost my boyfriend just over a month ago now. =]

A Kiss, A Hug, A Smile


Published: October 2007

What keeps me sane is knowing I have memories of us,
the pictures captured a glimpse,
but my heart captured everything like a film recorder.

I pray for you
I sit and ask myself why

why couldn't I of been there?
Why wasn't I there you help you?

You are loved. You are missed.
Reach down and take my hand.
Take me to heaven with you.

When I think of you my eyes rain
I don't like to think you were in that much pain
there were no clouds such a wonderful day
if only you kept on shining

You gave me love
and touched my life
it's all over now
you no longer have to fight

when I see those pictures of you smiling
I remember the things that you were hiding
you didn't have to turn away
we all wanted you to stay

if only you could talk
you usually didn't have no fear
when I knew what you were doing
I knew that I would stand by you
and help you through

I look up the stars at night
to see which one is shining bright
I wish I could see your smile
I would travel those extra miles

can't get you out of my mind
and it's supposed to get easier in time
I love You, I miss You, I wish you were here
losing you was my greatest fear

I love you Matt.

I just lost my boyfriend to a fight with diabetes. I can relate to the poem. It's everything I feel and wonder, both in my head and out loud.

I met a guy at my new work-place 4 months ago, and we started going out, but our relationship was still private since it had been just a month of dating. The night before he got an accident, I went to his apartment and found him playing fifa with his guy friends. He made me dinner while I sat in the kitchen and watched him. He was traveling that night, so I decided to head home so that he could get some rest before he had to travel. He hugged me and kissed me and told me how much he really liked me. The following day as I entered the lounge at work, I saw his picture on the noticeboard saying that he had got an accident and died. My heart broke. My baby was gone, and no one was there to comfort me because I had told him to keep it a secret since I was the new girl at work, so no one knew we were dating. It has been 26 days since he died, and I still cannot accept the fact that he is gone. I miss my baby. I should have let the world know how much I loved him.

My boyfriend passed away March 20,2018. It's been 37 days and counting...counting the days until I can be with him again. The love we had was so special. We connected on levels I can't even explain. He was my true soulmate. How am I supposed to keep going and be strong like everyone tells me...when I'm just torn apart? I wanna believe everything happens for a reason, but what kind of reason would it be okay for your best friend to be gone and you left alone?

I lost my boyfriend too 1 week ago. I don't know how to stop the pain. The thought that he's gone is killing me. The pain is making me crazy. I wish he never died and could stay with me. For two years I waited for him as we were about to meet this June 17, but he's gone. My life suddenly changed! I miss him so much with every breath i take.

I had also lost my boyfriend on March 1, 2018. I woke up next to him not breathing. I understand the pain you are going through. We were together for 2 years but friends for 4.

I lost my boyfriend in my arms on July 1, 2017 from an asthma attack. Even though we were only together for two and a half months, it still hurt like I was with him for years. It hurt even more to hear him tell me he was about to die and then give me a huge and close his eyes.

I lost my boyfriend 2 months ago. He was not only my boyfriend; he was also my best friend and my everything. He was my world. No one can replace him. I know you will never come back to me, but I believe that you will always be near. I miss you a lot, and my love toward you will never end.

I lost the love of my life, best friend, lover, care-taker, heart, and whole world six weeks ago. He was only 56. I am 30. We knew this time would come but not so soon. We planned another 30 years together, at least. He was healthy, and then he had chest pains, and that was it. I don’t know how to (or don’t want to) learn to live in this world without him. How do you do it? I don’t know. I will do things he wanted me to do for him other than that. Everything else I don’t care about. What’s the point?

October 7, 2017 is when I lost the love of my life, my best friend, my everything. He went out for his 19th birthday. He was put on life support but didn't make it. At 19 years old I lost everything. He died from a heroin overdose. It has barely been a month, and I have lost my mind.

Chintu, I love you so much. I really don't know why you did this to me. Why you left me alone. It's been one year and 2 months. I have lost you now. I know that you are never going to come back, but my heart still feels that you might have gone somewhere and you will come because you can't live without me. My bad luck is that I can't even see your last face. It hurts me a lot. I can't give your place to anybody. I just wish whenever I die I just meet you first. I have many questions, but the only thing I want is to see you, to hug you, to kiss you one last time. I am dying every single second without you. Only I know that how painful it is to be in this world without you. I miss you so much. I love you so much.

I lost my man 6 months ago. He was involved in a motor accident. I wasn't there when the accident happened. I was sleeping peacefully at home. When I woke up the next morning, I received a news about him from my mom. I immediately checked my phone. I didn't want to believe it. I was already shaking when I held my phone and there I saw his last messages and last calls for me. I wasn't able to answer all of them because I was already sleeping. The whole night. I really thought he was in his apartment because that's what he told me before I went to sleep, but no. Now he's gone. I can't reach him anymore. It hurts. It really hurts especially when you can't do anything about it but just accept the fact that he's really gone forever. Baby, I miss you so much. I know you're in a better place now, but damn it's always gonna hurt. I love you.

I lost my boyfriend 3 months ago. We took the dogs out for a walk and he loved parkour and things like that. He climbed up on a train and got hit by high voltage. He survived at that point but died the next morning in the hospital. We were together for 3 months but spent every day together in work and at home. We planned our whole lives together.

I miss you, Oliver. Life is not the same without you anymore. Miss your tattoos and the way you closed your eyes when I rubbed your hair in the car. They say the night is the darkest before the dawn. But my sun will never come up again, so all I see is the sunset you paint every day! Oliver 1992-2017

My fiancé passed away on the 15th of October 2016. We had been together 8 years. It would have been 9 years on the 17th of July. We have 2 beautiful children. He was my best friend, my hero, my lover. He was my everything. The pain never stops. I guess you just learn to live with the pain. Nearly nine months on and I still think he's coming home to me, but till we meet again, Handsome, I will always love you, and you will always be my hero.

I lost my boyfriend June 12th, 2017, 4 days ago. He was in a car accident. We hadn't talked at all that day, and I regret it so much. Tomorrow is his funeral, and I don't want to see his body lying there. I've never felt this pain before. I don't know how to cope with it.

I lost my boyfriend 11 days ago. We were in Mexico on vacation. I got pulled out by a riptide and he drowned trying to save my life. He is my hero. This still feels like a bad dream, and it doesn't feel like he's really gone. I don't deserve to walk on God's green Earth, and if I could trade places with him I would without question.

I lost my boyfriend on the 30th of April 2017. It's been 4 days now, but I still feel like I am having a really bad dream. I am a mess, I am devastated, I am broken. I miss you, baby.

I lost my heart the day someone decided to take the life of Mackinley. To shoot him, and God took him right then and there. At least he didn't suffer. The suffering is left up to me. There's so much I wished that I said the last time that I saw him. Fly high, my love, and know we spent the best years of our lives together.

Deboria, I know your pain. It was August 6, 2017, when my heart was ripped from my body. They came in and broke into his house on Sunday morning. Thieves. They took the most valuable thing you can take from a family. His life. My only hope is to see him again one day and for him to know that he was and will always be so loved.

I lost my boyfriend on April 1, 2017. He wasn't just my boyfriend; he was soon to be a daddy for the first time. I'm 7 months pregnant with his first and only son. He was murdered and his life was taken from his son. He was so happy to be a dad. I miss you and love you and no one will ever take your place. R.I.P ANGEL SANABRIA 10/27/1990 - 04/01/2017.

Byron, it has been almost 4 years since God called you home. I truly miss you and cannot have anyone take your place. You were my all in all. I'm waiting 'til we meet again.
Love you always,

I lost my boyfriend Chito more than a month ago due to Leukemia. We've been together for 7 years and planning to get married after two years. I stayed with him until his burial day. No words can tell how I was feeling that day. But God has a purpose for everything. I know he is living now with God where there is no pain, suffering and death. He will always be my one and only.

I lost my boyfriend almost a year ago to suicide. He was a soldier struggling with PTSD. He was due to come home a few days later. I hadn't seen him in a year, though we talked every day. When I first heard, I felt guilty, like why didn't I know how badly it was affecting him. Why wasn't I there with him. I still think of him every day. Another month will be one year since I lost him. And though life has moved me on, I will never stop loving or missing him. He truly was my hero.

I lost my boyfriend to suicide on Monday. I found him. The image is haunting me. I just miss him so much. Does it get any easier? I feel like I can't cope, and the thought of life without him scares me so much. He wasn't just my partner, he was my best friend, my soulmate, my whole world. I feel like I could have done more to help him not feel that it was his only escape. I know he's in a better place and he's happy. His wings were ready but my heart wasn't.
