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.

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

My husband and I were married for 23 years. We got married when I was 15 he was 18. We had 4 kids and on 12-09-2009 the worst day of my life my husband passed away in his sleep.
I miss him so much.This poem is so much of how I feel.
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.

I really enjoyed your poem, I can't relate because I am only 15, and I don't have a story to share but I was just looking through these poems and I was really moved by yours!!! I am an aspiring writer and I hope to become as good with words as you!!! I don't know you but I will ask god to watch over you and your child or children!!
