Death Of Partner Poem

Poem On Grief And The Passage Of Time

I lost my boyfriend to a brief battle with cancer. While I was left utterly devastated following his passing, I have gained strength to live for not just myself but for him also. We were soul mates and best friends, and I miss him every day. This poem was written in an attempt to heal my heart.

How Is Time Passing?


Published by Family Friend Poems April 19, 2023 with permission of the Author.

How is time passing
When all I am doing is wishing
That you were by my side?

How is time passing
When I am floating
Through the empty skies?

How is time passing
When I am not living,
But rather existing to survive?

I want it to stop.
I want people to stop.
I want time to stop.

Time continues,
But WE continue,
Not I,
Not me,
Rather we.

I will live with you
And for you
And enjoy life before you and your watchful eyes.

Maybe I'm lucky,
Maybe you're free,
And now I have a guardian angel looking after me.
