Poems to Comfort the Grieving: As You Search for Breath

Poems to comfort the grieving:  for the loss of a fiance, boyfriend or husband.  May you find some solace in this poem in your time of grief.

by Joshua Cintrón

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
gone.  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.
