Husbands are, for many wives, their source of comfort, love, joy, and companionship. Many wives consider their husband to be their confidant and best friend. To lose the man they have relied on for so long can be utterly devastating. For those who have not experienced the loss of a husband, it is impossible to understand the depth of the pain a wife feels. It is a pain so deep, the human mind only comes to accept the harsh reality gradually. Widows and her supportive friends and family can honor their loved one by recounting a kind gesture or amusing stories involving him.
Below are some Poems Paying Tribute to the Passing of Husbands
1. Missing You
I sit alone now in the darkness of despair.
I cry my silent tears,
My heart is broken into a million tiny pieces.
The silence is deafening to my ears.
The darkness frightens me,
The shadows climb the wall.
I hear footsteps walking,
Passing through the hall.
The loneliness surrounds me,
It takes my breath away,
This is the pattern of my life,
Since that awful, dreadful day.
Without a clue
Without a hint
Of what was yet to be,
God called you home
To be with him
And took you away from me.
I walk, I talk. I carry on
When the sun pokes out its head
But when darkness falls
And evening comes
I cannot go to bed.
For this is when I miss you most of all
When I curl into a little ball
And cry those silent tears.
Watching the shadows,
And missing you.
2. My Lost Love
I have only just lost you the pain is hard to bear
Do I have to go through life knowing you’re not there
please some one explain to me why he had to go
are there any reasons I really need to know
I sit here and remember all the lovely times we shared
the talks the laughter of every one you cared
I am told the pain will ease in time
and I will think of him without a tear
but that will be impossible as I need to have him here
He was my very world to me my ever guiding star
Just kiss me softly on the cheek and tell me where you are
3. Live Our Dreams
Staring at the little dots in the sky
Wondering which one is you
Asking the same question, why?
Only answer I know is that you knew.
Sitting by the window, watching the rain fall
Never felt so cold.
Remembered the last story you told.
Hold on and be strong
Live you’re life, do your things
For it’s in heaven I belong
Go on and live your dreams
In a song I still hear you
In a flower I still see you
But your bed space is empty
It’s just your memory that comforts me.
Missing you is a rollercoaster ride
Emotions up and down
Always wishing you are by my side
But I’ll hold on and I’ll be strong
Will live my life, do my things
And promise to live our dreams.
will I see your smiling face,
will I feel your strong firm embrace.
will I wish upon the starry skies,
will I gaze into your loving eyes.
will I feel your warm lips upon mine,
will my eyes sparkle and shine.
the streets your feet will roam,
Because Our Lord and Savior decided to take you Home.
5. Love Forever Lost
Like A ghost I flitter through the night,
keeping to the shadows and abhorring the light.
The night camouflages and no one can see
the shadow of the person that once was me.
The days lays me bare with no where to hide,
this raw pain that I feel inside,
You are no longer of this world,
you inhabit a place of no return,
no matter the tears or how much I yearn.
All I have left is your memories,
cherish it I will do,
but I would give everything I have for one more day with you.
So I will continue on living until the day you come for me and take me away.
6. I Am Not That Strong
My Dearest Darling
I am not as strong as I thought I was
Since you have been gone
I sit and cry all night long
to dusk to dawn.
Another day comes and once again
I have to pretend that I am strong
As soon as the day is over
I can go home and quit pretending that
I am strong
I sit and cry all night long
My Dearest Darling because of
you are gone and now that I am home
I don’t have to pretend to be strong!
7. Dreading Christmastime
I’m dreading Christmastime this year
Because I have so much to fear:
An empty space beside my chair,
No gentle caress upon my hair,
No Christmas card from him to read,
No loving kiss upon my cheek.
The mistletoe will be unused,
And songs will make my heart feel bruised.
My heart is heavy, my pain is great.
There’s nothing left to celebrate.
For my love has gone beyond the veil,
And all I want to do is wail:
“Christmastime, leave me alone!”
Happiness has left my home.
