Aunt Death Poems

Poems for Loss of an Aunt

Many aunts hold a special place in the hearts of their nieces and nephews. Aunts are often a source of good, unbiased advice and wonderful friendships. Understandably then, coping with the loss of an aunt can be especially difficult. Many people find solace in crying, talking, and writing about their aunt. Sharing special stories about an aunt with others and reliving shared experiences can keep her alive in memory. It is also a way to celebrate the value of life and family relationships and even validate our reason for living.

  7. 5. I Reckon

    • By Kayla
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2008

    This is for my aunt Lorrie... 'I reckon' was a inside joke between us since I was like 6. My dad woke me up early one morning, so I knew something was wrong. Then he said the horrible words...."Honey, Lorrie passed away at 3:00 this morning."

    I reckon I miss you
    and I probably always will
    This is so hard to get over
    like swallowing a bitter pill

    This is about my auntie who died when I was 13, and I wrote it when I was 13 too. Death's a hard thing for everyone, especially when you're young.
    Dedicated to my Auntie Pat 05/05/12

    I know that you're dead and you're gone for good
    It's hard to accept, but now I've understood
    Nothing lasts forever, even if it's good or it's bad
    Now you're up in heaven; it makes me feel glad

    Don't ever think a loved one is gone. They are still here looking at you in some way.

    When you feel like you've lost everything
    because you lost the one who was your everything,
    think about all the good things,
    the fun you had,

  12. 10. I Felt It Break

    • By Mickayla
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2010

    I'd like to dedicate this poem to my Aunt Linda, who passed away in October. I miss her a whole lot more than anybody in my family except my cousin Nolan. My Aunt Linda was my great-great-aunt, and she left her mom alone. and she also left me alone. She will be missed, and I hope to see her in Heaven when I go. RIP Aunt Linda, 1942-2009.

    I took a walk to try to ease my mind and get over your goodbyes.
    Though I know you're in a better place, surely God must know I want you back.
    Later that night I shed a tear, the one I've been saving for you
    and I could cry anymore after that.
