Our Life


Published: June 2008

The gas station was my first sight,
my heart skipped some beats that night.       

I knew I'd talk to him face to face,
I never knew I would feel so safe.

We went out from time to time,
it was July 20th that I first knew he would be mine.

The summer was ending and I thought we would too,
but week to week he proved his love was true.

Months, years, a lifetime it felt,
he came home every weekend and it made my heart melt.

Mistakes and arguments came along and went,
we made it through them all and nights together we spent.

He was smarter than words can say,
when the call came from OSU I knew he could not stay.

I needed to be with him so to Ohio we moved,
our love was stronger than anyone knew.

Our first walk down the isle was a hilarious joke,
smiles and giggles were what it provoked.

A few months went by and we heard some news,
the baby would be here in January, a boy God would choose.       

Our second walk down the isle went very smoothly,
the look on his face was what love should be.

We had our kiss as husband and wife,
together we would be for the rest of our lives.

It was only three weeks later that tragedy struck,
I watched my one true love die, I felt I had no luck.

How could he be gone? What did I do?
How will I move on and try to become someone new?

Our lives will never be the same,
but I'm lucky to have been loved,

by someone so beautiful and caring,
my one special person...... my one true love.

I lost my husband on April 24, 2018 in a very tragic way. He was charred to death after saving his passengers. He was a bus crew. Their bus bump into a delivery truck which contained LPG and acetylene tanks. I was 6 months pregnant at that time. It was very hard for me, and I can't express all of my emotions. I can't stop myself from asking why. I don't know how to move on.

My husband died on March 9, 2018. It's the most painful loss ever. He was sick from diabetes and then developed an abscess. He had 3 surgeries on his upper leg, but unfortunately this kept getting worse. He was in so much pain, and I will never forget his agony as he lay in the hospital bed for weeks. He was my everything. I feel so lost. Sometimes I just want to die. He loved me very much. He never let me do anything alone. He was always there. We were married for 4 years, but we were together for 9 years. I miss him so much. Nothing makes sense. Not even God. My friends and family have been so supportive. We have very good friends, and I am really grateful for that. I wish my husband could wake up from his grave and hold me again. The pain is too deep. The fact that we lived in a foreign country makes it more difficult. I know he is in a better place and doesn't have pain anymore. But even this doesn't ease my pain. I just want him back.

My husband passed on March 10, 2018. We were married for 36 years, no children, just the two of us. He was a diabetic from childhood. We loved each other very much. We did everything together. We traveled often, shared lots of laughter, and we were the center of each other's lives. I miss him so dearly. Night time is the worst; sleep fails me. I cannot think. I don't know what I like anymore. I go to the grocery store and don't know what to buy. I am a strong woman, but this has overwhelmed me. I hear a song that he would sing in his gospel group, and I lose it. I cannot remove his clothes from the drawers. I closed the door to his man cave. I don't know who I am without my other half. I am praying that God delivers us as we navigate through this space in our lives. Stay strong, and thank you!

Your poem really touched me I too lost someone. My fiancée. He passed before we could become one. My prayers are with you.

It's very peculiar. Today would have been mine and my husbands 4 years together. July 19th, your whole story is very much like mine. I also have a baby boy. My husband passed away 4 months ago. Only 3 months after we finally walked down the aisle. We were married Dec. 10 and he passed on March 28. He died in a car accident on his way home from work. He was 20 and I'm 23 now. It's too hard he was too young. Thanks for reading my story xo

I'm lucky to have experianced the kind of love we had. He always made sure I was happy and me him.

I too unexpectedly lost someone I love very much. He came into my life at a time that I really needed him. He filled my heart with such caring and unselfish love. Our love was unconditional. I loved the person I was when I was with him. And one day he was gone, he died in his sleep at the age of 43 from a brain aneurism. I was left with so much pain but feeling very fortunate to have had the opportunity to have met him and loved him in the way I did. There are people that go through a life time never experiencing that kind of love.
