Wife Death Poem

Poem About A Husband's Only Love

This poem was written in 2003 during an unexpected and quite out of the ordinary bout of melancholy. It came to me out of the blue and at that time without context. My wife Antoinette was diagnosed with cancer in January 2007 and died of the disease July 26, 2010. I was by her side and had just kissed her and told her how much I loved her when she slipped away. I have no explanation for the similarities between the poem and the actual circumstances and my feelings following her death.

I found my lady dying
Lying across our bed
I pulled her to me gently
And kissed her sweet forehead
And she was gone
Lord, Lord, Lord,
My baby's gone
She was the only woman I could love
And now she's gone

I lay awake last evening
Lying across our bed
I prayed to Ja' through Jesus
Won't you take this from my head
Pass this cup on
Lord, Lord, Lord,
Pass this cup on
She was the only woman I could love
And now she's gone

I heard my darling crying
But it was the wind instead
So I closed the door slowly
And got back into bed
So alone
Lord, Lord, Lord,
I'm so alone
She was the only woman I could love
And now she's gone
