'Til Death Do Us Part

Published: October 2018

When life seems a blur,
And I can't quite believe
That I'm living without you
And you were taken from me,

I sit back and think
Of the memories we shared,
All the laughs that you gave me
And the times that you cared.

'Til death do us part.
That's true in our case.
I miss you so much,
Your voice and your face.

Time is a healer.
I can't say that it's true,
But life does go on,
Which means without you.

When it all gets too much
And I wish you were here,
I feel thankful that I met you,
And I hold you close, my dear.

'Til death do us part.
That's true in our case.
I miss you so much,
Your voice and your face.

Thank you for saying what I feel. Just lost my husband and not sure where to go from here or what to feel. I know life is for the living and I must muster the strength and courage to continue to live without him, but forever remembering him. Easier said than done. I look at the couch and he's not there. I turn in the bed 'cause I don't hear him and he's not there. It's gonna take time, but I know in my heart of hearts he would want me to remember the good times we had and cherish his memory.
Thanks again.

I lost my husband seven months ago after forty years of marriage. Until you have been through this difficult experience yourself, you cannot understand the pain. This poem explains it all, the lost feeling when you lose your loved one. No one tells you how to live with the loneliness. I have found that writing poetry has become a life saver for me. I'm fairly new to this, but I really am enjoying it.
