Death Of Lover Poems

Poems for When The One You Love Has Died

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.

    How I long for the day you welcome me into your light.

    Terrible Pain Of Missing You

    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.
