[Loss of a loved one] A grief poem about losing your husband (or boyfriend)

May this loss of a loved one grief poem give you comfort this day.


You awoke this morning or
maybe you haven’t slept in
days; in shock, in
disbelief the man you love
with your entire being is

The voices
of people you love
will shower you to no end.

You’ll be strong for them,
for your love who I’m sure
stands behind you even now,
with his hands gently massaging
your shoulders, ridding
your body of grief that
aches your bones.

As you search for breath,
trying to make sense of this
tragedy befallen you,
know the love you created
with your soulmate in the
silent moments when his
body laid next to you,
will never cease to exist—

…it will be the air in your
lungs, the strength in
your legs, the blood in
your heart…

for you to rise again
in this world
as the beautiful soul
he knew you to be.


Ps. sorry for your loss.
