Wife Death Poems

Poetry for the Loss of a Wife

When we take our vows and say, "until death do we part," we are lying to ourselves. Death only brings a physical departure. A marriage and the bond between a husband and wife make two people into one. That means that even when we lose a wife, we are still left with that special love that burns inside and never dies. That internal love burns on even if our wife is no longer with us. Clinging to that love inside of us, even if it can never be physically expressed, should carry us and sustain us in her passing.

    Poem About Remembered Feelings And Choices

    Remember all those happy days, those times she called our own
    In all those well-loved places where you now grieve alone.
    And those small endearing gestures, which you thought you knew so well,
    Are fading, as time passes, with her words, her kiss, her smell.

    Poem About The Anger And Pain Of Losing Wife

    Is it truly selfish to want you back again?
    I could not calm your mind, I could not ease your pain;
    I thought my love would be enough to keep you here with me;
    But now I know that was never going to be.

    Poem About Not Fearing Death

    When I had you I was afraid to die.
    Now that you're gone, death is my friend; he is by my side.
    If he takes me today, I will go with a smile.
    Let others cope and heal for awhile.
