Poem for my husband


Recommended Posts

My husband died on March 8th. (suddenly) He was 41, we were married almost 12 years. He sometimes wrote me little poems or sayings in cards or notes and regretfully, I never wrote anything for him. So on my bithday the other day, I wrote this for him;

“Another Day”

Another day without you, a day without my love

Another day with you not here… with you, above.

Each day I wake up sleepy, and roll to see your side

Empty as my heart, since the day that you died.

Each day I must wake, and face the brand new day

Just to realize once again, that you’ve gone away.

It’s often just too painful and more than I can bear

To face the world alone, for we are no longer a pair.

My partner in love, my partner in life

We were so much more, than husband and wife

You were my partner in crime, my secret holder,

My biggest fan, and always gave me your shoulder.

We’d lay in bed and talk, sometimes for hours

About everything, nothing…even baby showers.

You shared your fear, your dream, your hope

As I did mine, for together we’d cope.

Sometimes an occasion, you’d forget to see

But darling I never once felt, you forgot about me.

I felt your love each and every day

Constantly showing you cared, in your own way.

“How did I get so lucky?” You’d always say

I was the lucky one, to have you each day.

You’d jump through hoops, to make me happy

I’d giggle and nudge you, saying stop being so sappy.

How much I would give, for one more time

You looking in my eyes, and saying you’re mine.

One more time, of feeling your stare…

One more time, with your fingers through my hair.

So go on without you, is what I must do

Start fresh and move on, my life is new.

I’m trying baby, but the road is tough

Not having you here, is more than rough.

I’ll talk to you at night and hope that you hear

Perhaps I’ll feel it, when you are close to me near?

I’ll get up and keep going, the way that I should,

I just might make it, you always told me I could.

DMH821, I am so very sorry for the loss of your husband. Your poem is beautiful. I can't relate to your loss, I lost my 28 yr old son, but loss hurts no matter who it is. Be kind to yourself and again I'm so sorry you have found the need to be here but I'm glad you found us. Come back as often as you need to talk or just vent, it helps. Hugs and prayers to you.
