When Death Comes

Updated on August 26, 2013

When death comes we weep with sorrow,

when death comes we mourn the loss of our love ones.

When death comes we grieve over the memories we shared with our loved ones.

We struggle to go on, we pray for strength in hope of tomorrow will be a better day.

When death comes I ponder over why these things must be.

How do we accept these things we can not change?

In our hearts our loved ones live on; we cherish envisioning their faces as it soothes the pain

of that empty space left here on earth where their bodies were once housed.


The Light of Hope
The Light of Hope

Visiting familiar places in hope of feeling the spirit of their presence lingering in the air to comfort our wounded soul.

When death comes, it's bitter, it's cold, and unwelcomed, but the reality is when it comes hurt comes along with it, no words can soften the blow of a sudden plight of your un-invited coming.

When death comes without warning or notice the pain is piercing such as that of a high pitch whistle which only a Golden Retriever can hear.

*So many have lost loved ones this year this poem is in memory of those who lost loved ones in 2010

    Thank you for this piece. I am looking forward to reading the one on the Bible versus. I have been more and more curious about what the bible says since my grief tackled me, but I honestly have been spoon fed the Word and have not had the strength to feed myself.

    So sorry for your loss. I'm sure this piece will be helpful to others, and as you say, writing is a positive way to cope with loss, as is sharing.

    @Adela Thank you for taking the time to comment.

    @Happyboomernurse You are correct I have loved, lost and grieved from the lost of a loved one this year. My way of getting through the process of grief is to write, and get it out.

    This is a beautiful, universal poem about the grief that comes with losing a loved one. Very compassionate and authentic and quite obviously written by one who has loved, lost and grieved. Thanks for sharing this with all hubbers and dedicating it to those whose loss occured this year and is still raw and fresh.
