Husband Death Poem

I was able to create this poem two months after my husband died. It was an unexpected parting. We got married in 2004. On March 21, 2008 (it was Holy Friday), he passed away. I was left unprepared. He died peacefully in his sleep. Our only daughter, Danielle Rose, was two years old then. He was 36 and I was 35 at the time. I thought I've outgrown the hurt, but looking at his photographs still brings tears to my eyes.

Now That You're Gone

Published: August 2017

You're gone, and all that's left is nothing but memories,
Memories that lead me to silence and tears.
I miss your arms that hold me tight,
Your snore that fills our room at night.

You're gone, and I can no longer stare at you as you sleep,
But thank God he lets me see you as I weep.
In dreams we talk and laugh together.
There I can say I love you more than ever.

You're gone, and I feel so weary when I'm alone.
Wish you were here and would come back home.
I'm hurting and longing for your touch.
Why does parting have to hurt this much?

You're gone forever, and we are now apart.
I'm filled with pain that breaks my heart.
You used to playfully sneak behind the door.
Those lovely eyes I see no more.

You're gone, and I terribly miss your voice,
Your laughter that fills the house with noise.
Your absence makes me feel so blue.
My life is empty without you.

You're gone, but I know I shouldn't be so awful,
For you left me a treasure to cherish and to nurture.
Our precious little angel; she's all that I've got,
A constant reminder that once I had your love.

I just lost my husband on Sep. 12, 2018. He unexpectedly had a heart attack and passed peacefully in his sleep. We had just gotten married on July 8, 2018. I did not get the opportunity to bless him with a child. My heart hurts, and I am not ready for what lies ahead.

My husband just died from heart disease on September 7, 2018, and we had gotten married 10/12/2017. This Friday it was our first-year anniversary, but we were together for 4 years. The house is so quiet. I miss his deep voice and his snoring at night time. He really loved me for who I am. I didn't have to change anything. He was a great husband a good provider and a great stepfather to my daughter. My family loved him and so did all my friends. He was a happy person, caring and loving. I would never find anyone like him.
