Husband Death Poem

Coping With The Loss Of Your Loved One

My husband died last April after many happy years together. He was diagnosed with cancer, and although undergoing treatment for eight months, he died. I nursed him at home. It was the hardest and most painful time of my life. To watch someone you love so deeply deteriorate before your eyes is sheer torture. When he died, I never thought I would find the strength to carry on. If it weren't for the children and close friends, I would have completely fallen apart.

Until We Meet Again


Published by Family Friend Poems December 2020 with permission of the Author.

Alone in my darkness I still see your face,
sometimes your presence and your warm embrace.
I look 'round the house; it's calling your name,
but nothing I see here quite feels the same.
I then feel a shiver run right down my spine.
I hear you say, "Baby, everything is fine."

"I'm here watching over you; I'm right by your side.
The rough and the smooth I will gently guide,"
so I close my eyes and I see you smile,
and I can see you for a while,
and I know one day that we will meet
together forever, our journey complete.
