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 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.

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.

I know I wasn't there when you were taking you're last breath. I miss you badly. You are always my love and always will be. No one can take you place. I will never forget you, Sweetheart!
Love, Mit

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.
