Welcome to Poems About Loss Of Loved One:
Losing someone is the worst thing that can happen to anyone, it’s as if a piece of you dies with them, depending on how close you were to them defines the size of the piece.
People have different ways of saying goodbye, some are open and some are private, but we all like to say goodbye in our way.
I have had to deal with the loss of loved ones on many occasions, some people say “too many” but I am a better person for knowing each and every one of those people.
When my father died I was only 13 but I still remember him (27 years later) I suppose there are some things which you never forget. At his funeral there must have been over 100 people and about 10 of them wanted to speak. Even now I can still remember how differently people talked about and remembered him, some of the people hadn’t seen him for over 20 years but to hear them talk you would have thought that they had seen him the day before, this is because when you really know someone, it is like you say them yesterday, no matter how long it’s been.
I was classed as too young to talk at the funeral, although I think that with the support which i received that day from friends and family, I would have been able to.
There is two ways to look at friends and family at a time like this, I have experienced both so I will tell you what my thoughts are about them both:
Family and friend play a big part at times like these and many people believe that you should lean on them, they are probably all feeling nearly as bad as you are right now and you could both support each other.
On the other hand, if you do lean on someone who is feeling as bad as you are for moral support, you may find that it makes you both feel worse and it will be harder to cope and get things done.
As I said, I have experienced both of these ways and to tell you the truth, I think that it’s completely up to the individual, if you feel better alone “tell people that you would like to be alone”.
I decided to write this because of my experiences with loss, not for sympathy or a way for me to let out my emotions but for you!
I will keep adding to this site, with the help of family and friends, I will add their feeling and how they coped with the emotions during their times of loss. I really hope that some of what they, and I have experienced and dealt with will help you to cope just a little better.
If my poems about loss of loved one helps just one person, I’m glad that I wrote every word, and I will continue writing until I have helped YOU!
