Loss Poems

Poems for Loss of a Loved One

When we lose something that is precious to us, we are left with a feeling of sadness. Whether it is a precious friend or even a treasured object, the loss can be hard to bear. It is as if a part of you has gone missing. Throughout our life we amass collections of friends and treasured possessions. Having close relationships help us feel as if we are not alone in the world. When we lose someone or something that is precious to us, we may realize that there is a certain aloneness that can never be filled. Ultimately the condition of life is one of being alone before God.

    Could you imagine a pain so deep down inside
    That it can not be summarized in words you simply can write

    I sat there and watched her, helpless fighting for every breath
    The Doctor said she would die today so all of the family left.
    My grandfather cried and said I can not leave your side
    Although I do not want to see you go, I have to stay to say goodbye.

    When you would bring home chocolates you'd received at school

    • Published: February 2010

    I don't think that you ever imagined how much pain I would be in once you were gone,
