Son Death Poems - Page 2

  1. 21. Life Goes On

    My 26 year old son died from injuries from an auto accident and was an organ donor. The organ donor bracelets phrase, "Life Goes On" inspired me to write this on the 3rd anniversary of his death.

    Poem About Life Continuing After Death Of Son

    It's true what they say, when a child is born,
    a mother's heart is no longer her own,
    It runs and skips and giggles and grins,
    And crawls in her lap, for a kiss on the chin,
    But where goes her heart, when that child is gone,
    Is it true what they say, that life goes on.

    A thousand ninety-five days, and the clock still ticks,
    3 whole years, the months - 36,
    Does the passage of time mean it should make sense,
    Can loss be measured in time increments.
    As I yearn for the day when I'll again see my son,
    Is it true what they say, that life goes on.

    I still breathe in and out and arise every day,
    And work, and struggle, and yes, even play,
    Things will get better, I've been told many times,
    But "different" is the status for those left behind,
    Time can't heal all wounds nor break all bonds,
    Can it be true what they say, that life goes on.

    In the air and wind, I feel your strong embrace,
    And your kisses from butterflies that land on my face,
    I see your smile in the beams of the sun,
    The twinkle of your eyes now shines in Eden,
    And I hear your laugh in the lyrics of song,
    Is it possibly true, that life goes on.

    It's strange to think that your heart still beats,
    Inside some stranger, whom I'll never meet,
    Does he know he carries a heart of gold,
    From my sweet boy, who will never grow old,
    So many lives saved by your own,
    Yes - it's true what they say, that life goes on.

  2. 22. My Beautiful Baby Boy

    • By Haley Manns
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2009

    I lost my son only hours after his birth. I couldn't reach his father and that's what hurt worst. my son Keagan was my pride and joy. I miss him dearly.

    Poem About Death Of Infant Son

    I loved him dearly
    More and more every second he was with me
    I held him so gently
    Then tears began to pour
    Because I knew by the end of the day I wouldn't have him anymore
    I'd done anything to keep him out of harm's way
    But that didn't stop God's will
    I still lost my baby that day
    In my arms he died
    So for weeks now I have cried
    I just can't understand what was on God's mind
    How could he do this, It was so unkind
    To take my baby
    And before he could even see his daddy
    I would have taken his place
    Just for his daddy to see his face
    I'd gave him my every breath
    I would've given God every beat from my heart
    I'd ripped it right out of my chest
    Just so he wouldn't take Matt and Keagan apart
    He should have at least given them a small start
    It was so unfair
    because God didn't even give Matt a chance to be there
    compared to my feeling of losing my child
    This poem was nice and mild
    Because I could explain the hate
    but it would really do no good cause it would still be too late

    Bereaved Mother And Grandparent Poem

    All I know is.... I will always miss my Nick and long for him.
    All I know is.... one minute I'm together and the next I'm falling apart.
    All I know is.... my heart hurts all the time and it has never felt whole since the day he died.
    All I know is.... the tears won't stop filling up my eyes, soaking my pillows or staining my face.
    All I know is.... I "Really Really" miss him.
    All I know is.....it hurts ALL the time.
    All I know is.....I want him back.
    All I know is.....sometimes I want him so badly, that I want to go to him.
    All I know is.... there is no greater ache in this world than my child dying.
    All I know is.....I love him, even in death, I love him so much.

    Poem About Son's Death Touching The Lives Of Others

    In your life you touched so many.
    In your death many lives were changed.
    You were an amazing young man.
    Without you here, our lives will never be the same.
    We miss you more than words could ever say.
    Even more with each and every passing day.
    We just hold onto the memories that we made and
    All the promises God so graciously gave.
    Resting assured when Jesus comes there will be no more sadness,
    No more goodbyes, just life together eternally with Jesus by our side.

  5. 25. A Life Lost

    • By Charles Vince
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems August 2012

    July 31, 1997 a date that is seared in my memory, the date our son Philip died in an auto accident. It's been 13 years, but the pain still returns when you least expect it. Phil was a month away from his 18th birthday and had just graduated high school, with honors. We know we will see him again. Praise God.

    Poem Recalling Night Of Son's Death

    Our Son isn't home, where could he be.
    It's after midnight, and the doorbell rings.
    Who could be calling, he has a key.
    A man in uniform, we see him through the glass.
    "Do you have a son named Philip?" he asks.

    With those few words our lives forever change.
    We will never be the family we were, ever again.
    Almost eighteen, in the prime of his life.
    A careless driver has ended what should have been,
    a life full of promise, of hopes and of dreams.

    Our lives must go on, what else can we do?
    We know our faith in God will see us through.
    He spoke to my heart, my soul and my mind.
    "My precious child, He has been with me,
    since the moment he died."

  6. 26. The Handing Over

    • By Lisa Willhite
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems May 2010

    I stand before a vision so dreadful
    knees weakened and shoulders, oh so weighted
    re-living life, becoming regretful
    for I questioned what God had since fated

    I fight the desire to "fall to knees"
    a strong mother of sons never gives in
    till his lips mouth, "I'm fine," again to me
    letting him go will be my greatest sin

    have you love that can test as strong as mine
    I ask you Lord, for I am his mother
    will you kiss his cheeks, and hug hugs like mine
    and be sure he sleeps, beneath the covers?

    Deaf ears I fear, that are not of my own
    till I hear as I fall, momma I'm home

  7. 27. Dance Again

    I wrote this poem after having a dream about my 32 year old son who passed away on Christmas Eve 2009. I feel that God gave me one more waltz, one more dance with him. I miss him with every beat of my heart, but I know that some day... we will dance again.

    Comfort After Dreaming Of Son Who Passed

    I see a waltz frozen in time,
    dancing and spinning, spinning and dancing.
    My ear pressed up against his chest,
    I hear his heartbeat over and over again.
    Spinning and dancing, dancing and spinning,
    in this...our frozen waltz in time.

    Through the mist of this dance,
    I see a small ray of light.
    I know in my heart this must be the sun,
    inch by inch...
    I feel its warmth, slowly melting our frozen waltz in time.

    I cry out to the sun,
    no please go away...
    please don't wake me and make my waltz go away.
    Let me continue dancing and spinning and spinning and dancing in this...
    our frozen waltz in time.

    Yet... the sun keeps coming,
    rising higher and higher,
    melting away this frozen waltz that I have danced with you for so long.

    Again, I cry out.
    No, please go away.
    My hands are slipping and I can't hold on
    and the sound of his heart is fading away.
    Please sun...leave us alone.

    The sun is now above me and the dance floor has disappeared,
    but tell me sun, please tell me,
    why my frozen waltz is no longer here?

    Then I opened my eyes, I started to smile,
    Oh God... It was just a dream.
    My son and me in this frozen time,
    dancing and spinning and spinning and dancing,
    in this frozen waltz in time.

    Thank you, God, for one more waltz,
    one more dance with him,
    and when I close my eyes tonight,
    please let me dance again.

    I lost my only child at the age of 27 years. I could be bitter and even though I'm very sad, I thank God for giving me those 27 years with such a wonderful Son.

    Death Of Only Child Poem

    I know that my son has passed away
    But I will love him until my dying day.
    So please listen to my memories every now and then
    Family and friends, please allow me to talk about Kenn.

    His hair was brown, his eyes were blue.
    He never left without saying I love you.
    He never caused us any pain,
    With his life we had everything to gain.

    We gained from him even in death
    He brought us to God and there is no greater wealth.
    Yes, for our son there could be no other
    I thank God for choosing me to be his Mother.

  9. 29. My Green-Eyed Soldier Boy

    • By Angela D. Ebanks
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems January 2017

    My 23 year old son died in a car accident 3 years ago. I wrote this poem in the first weeks after his death. I would be tortured at night as I tried to sleep and these poems would come to me line by line and nag me until I would get up in the middle of the night and put them on paper. This one took about 10 minutes to write.

    My 23 Year Old Son Died In A Crash

    Cherubic cheeked, an explosion of curls
    Even as a toddler, you had all the girls
    Milk teeth so perfect, like tiny white pearls -
    My green-eyed soldier boy.
    A milk-mustached face and a chocolate-smeared chin
    A twinkling, mischievous, heart-melting grin
    I can't believe I'll never see you again -
    My green-eyed soldier boy.
    Big footed, knob-kneed, a changeling, a teen
    Yearning for places you'd heard of, not seen
    Greener were pastures and spaces between -
    My green-eyed soldier boy.
    Though the battles you fought weren't in foreign lands
    You fought against time, against life's strange demands
    And when I was turned, you slipped right through my hands -
    My green-eyed soldier boy.
    Now your battle is over, your time here too short
    Your ship sailed away, God said "Mission abort!"
    But my heart remembers yours, and I'll meet you at port -
    My green-eyed soldier boy.

    I'm 16 yrs old and my fiance and I in November of 2008 lost our child in the middle of the night in my arms, waking up to him permanently sleeping.

    Death From SIDS Poem

    My name is Courtney M. I'm 16 year's old.
    Everyone told me I was young, too, young.
    I know I was but I was ready
    for my son Damien James M.
    to come into this world.
    I miss him so much.
    God blessed me with a beautiful, health baby.
    But two short months he felt like it would be to hard.
    My baby boy left in the middle of the night right in my arms.
    His cold, stiff little body where in mine when I awoke.
    Three month's later still haunted by it you still give me a reason to smile Damien.
    You are my little angel and you saved me.
    I live my live for you baby, you're my sweet pea.
    August 26th, 08 was the best day of my life
    and I thought would be the hardest thing I would ever do I life.
    I was terribly wrong, November 2nd, 08 was the worst and hardest day of my life.
    There were so many things I had planned for my little guy.
    To make me and his life better with daddy.
    Daddy misses you too.
    I lay awake watching him cry in his sleep calling for you.
    Damien you will never stop being loved.
    you were and are the best thing that has happen to daddy and me.

  11. 31. Always Remembered Never Forgotten

    • By Amy
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems December 2007

    Dedicated to JAMIE, for his mum DEBBIE and his friends and family. Missing you already Jamie.

    He passed away last Friday night
    His death took us by surprise
    Never again will we see him smile
    Or look into his eyes

    His body is cold
    Yet his hands are warm
    His eyes just stare
    And you realize he's gone

    His mum's in the room
    And she feels so alone
    Knowing that out of two boys
    Only one will come home

    The next day the machine is turned off
    It was the only way he'd breathe
    But now his life has ended
    All we can do is grieve

    Two days later his mum's still in shock
    Living with unbearable pain
    Even when the sun shines
    All she sees is rain

    The tears echo in our hearts
    'Cause it seems he was too young
    And everyone agrees
    Cause Jamie was only 21.

    I lost my son; he is with God now. I know I will see him again one day..

    Poem Asking God To Care For Son In Heaven

    Dear God,
    This is just a little letter for you, because we have an agreement.
    You are to babysit my little boy for us until we come to see him,
    I only ask these few things from you,
    One, please make sure he gets eskimo kisses every day,
    because daddy loves to play that game with his sisters.
    Two, please make sure you tell him mommy loves him more than the world sky, space and even the galaxy,
    that's a game I like to play with his sisters..
    Three, tell him big sissy Makayla was so excited to have a little brother
    she was even willing to share her toys..
    Four, Jenna loved to smack mommy's belly and give big slobbery kisses...
    Five, can you please build a ball park for him to learn how to play baseball,
    because daddy was so sure he'd be a star...
    Six, make sure my little munchkin is not a picky eater,
    we make his sisters try every thing once..
    Seven, take a lot of pictures for us to look at when we pick him up someday,
    we don't want to miss a single thing...
    Eight, please let him look upon the world to see who we are,
    Nine, please let my baby sleep with you if there is a very scary storm,
    his sisters get a little afraid sometimes too...
    And finally ten.. Like I said we have a agreement,
    you are only to baby sit him until we get there , after we do Mommy and Daddy can handle the job...
    Thank you God.....
