It was many and many a year ago,
In a kingdom by the sea,
That a maiden there lived whom you may know
By the name of Annabel Lee;
Pain. Anguish. Heartbreak. These are just a few of the profound emotions you may feel if you have lost a lover to death. Lovers are the most intimate of companions. They know just how to make you feel special and loved, and though they may leave behind many precious and heartwarming memories, their loss leaves a void that is difficult, if not impossible, to fill. They say time heals all wounds, but many doubt the truthfulness of that old adage when faced with the death of such a dear loved one.

I stand alone on the sandy beach
my tears flowing into the sea
because I know you're out of reach
and no longer here with me
I know how all of you feel. I lost the love of my life a couple years ago, and the pain doesn't get any easier. We were supposed to get married on April 10 of last year. That would have been...
A new day dawns once again.
I stare at where you used to lay your head.
I close my eyes, your face I plainly see.
That smile that could always bring me to my knees.
I lost my best friend, soulmate, friends-to-the-end, love-of-my-life man! We were moving in together September 12, 2018! He died the 11th of September! On the 9th his brother was over at our...
What keeps me sane is knowing I have memories of us.
The pictures captured a glimpse,
but my heart captured everything like a film recorder.
I met a guy at my new work-place 4 months ago, and we started going out, but our relationship was still private since it had been just a month of dating. The night before he got an accident,...
The haunted glaze over my eyes has become an all too familiar sight.
It reflects the emptiness inside of me, my soul's plight.
There's total darkness now when everything was once bright.
How I long for the day you welcome me into your light.
My son's father just passed away 4 days ago. We were on/off together for the last 2 years. This poem hit home and expressed everything that I too feel. Thank you for sharing.
I closed my eyes.
My tears rolled straight to the floor,
All I wanted was to feel something more.
I was torn inside.
There are NO words, NO poems, NO music, that can alleviate the pain you are going through. And I say this to all those who have lost a much loved boy or girlfriend. It will be 46 years this...
I try to search for a little closure and relief but they are hiding in a cold and dark place that I cannot find.
Why do the painful images not find not find a place to stay other than the forefront of my jumbled up mind?
I can still hear your sweet, soft voice whisper the three special words of "I love you" in my ear.
Oh how I wish that my strong arms were wrapped around your small, breathing body so that I could keep you near.
You were so beautiful,
So amazingly wonderful,
I think of you everyday.
I feel for you. It's very unexpected. I, too, lost my fiance on 9/9/17. It was the most difficult thing I have been through. He had back surgery in August and contracted an infection that...
The sadness drowns me.
The emptiness consumes my life.
We used to be so happy.
You were going to be my wife.
My boyfriend just passed away on March 19, 2017. It's only been several weeks. We were together for 11 years. He was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2015, and the journey has been surreal. I...
