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.
