A new day dawns once again.
I stare at where you used to lay your head.
I close my eyes, your face I plainly see.
That smile that could always bring me to my knees.
Those eyes that saw into the very soul of me.
My heart aches for the touch of your hands on my skin,
The taste of your kiss on my lips.
I've come to understand what the meaning of loneliness is.
I wipe away a tear.
It's almost more than I can bear.
I pray for the strength to get me through another day without you!

I lost my fiance May 3rd, 2019. He was only 28 and we have been together since 18. We share a daughter who turns 3 on the 31st. He was a stay-at-home dad and took care of our daughter since she was born. He had acute pancreatitis and suffered complete organ failure within 4 days. We went to the ER Tuesday, thinking he'd get pain medicine and go home. But by early Wednesday morning he was on life support and that afternoon they let me know he wasn't going to make it. First his kidneys failed, then his liver, lungs. He had an infection in his heart, and by Friday afternoon he was brain dead. I can't even begin to explain the loss I feel. He was my everything.

In January 4, 2017, my fiancé died due to a heart attack. He never had any problems with his heart. He went to work one day as usual. He worked for the Marshals office where they put your stuff on the street. He was a strong man, but this one day everything changed between us. Many sleepless nights because that one day he went to work he tried to catch a dresser that was coming down steps at a fast pace and it hit him in his chest. That started all the pain he had. So for nearly 2 months he was having little heart attacks then one. He was about to go to work. I'm glad I woke up before he left. He was having so much pain, I just wanted it to stop. I was so scared I didn't want to lose my fiancé, so I went to the kitchen to fix him some microwavable pancakes so he could take his pain medicine before it could finish. He fell on the floor. I rushed back in the room and called 911. When they got there I didn't know his heart had stop beating. I LOVE you always.

My fiance was sick and also died of a heart attack, but yet of none of the doctors (from being in ICU two weeks prior) said there was anything wrong with his heart. I was with him 24/7 taking care of him. On Nov 20th I had a very early doctor's appointment a hour and a half away in Philadelphia. So on the 19th I went to a hotel so I wouldn't hit rush hour traffic. Only to come home and he died the day before. I should have been there. I could have called 911 like I did 2 weeks prior for his COPD. They had to test his heart before his release and now he died and I wasn't with him. I feel so guilty. I was too lazy to get up early and have to drive 2 and a half hours instead of a half hour. We were to be married in May and both are disabled, but I was denied SSI and now I have no job and my fiance only wanted to take care of me in every way. He had just got his disability 6 months before he died. We were finally able to start a future and now nothing.

A month ago today I lost my fiancé Angus Ross to bladder cancer at age 62. He was my best friend and soul mate. We did everything together. We were planning to get married, but it was too late. I was much younger than him. We fell in love despite are big age difference. I miss him so much.

My name is Jennifer and my fiance Danny died suddenly 10 months before our dream wedding in Disneyland. It has been 14 months and I still think about him everyday. I lost my soulmate, my best friend, and the love of my life.

I too lost my fiancé 2 weeks before we were to get married, at the hands of someone else. No words can describe how lost I feel knowing that everything I thought I knew, was ripped from my grip. He was my best friend and my entire world for 4 years but I am so grateful for the love he gave me in that short time.

I was engaged to a man, He was my soul mate. My children loved him as much as I did and the love was given back in return. He passed away at the hands of someone else 2/24/2013. I miss him sooooo much. Nothing can describe the loneliness you feel when you lose your lover, best friend, soul mate, family....your everything. RIP Chris...I love you forever and a day....until we meet again <3

I lost my best friend, my love, my rock, seven months ago today. He was taken from this world by someone else, and I have been left with no explanation. I could never have imagined the loneliness and grief that I now feel. He is still with me, but I miss him every moment of every day.

I lost my fiance at the hands of someone else also on March 30, 2016. My heart is so empty and I wish I could just hold him one last time. He was my world for 4 years and my kids loved him also. I am just so empty and wishing I could have taken his place or went with him.
