11:11 I love you

11:11 I love you

A Poem by Starbound25

the day I lost my husband


On 11/11 at 11 am you called to me
with fear in your voice and a pain in your head
strength was turning to weakness
as your body attacked you
your insides in pain
try to stay calm babe try just to breath
like a movie I watch
paramedics and ambulances
doctors and nurses scurry about
no answers
surreal as I sit near a hospital bed
holding your hand
talking to you
hoping you can hear me
please hear me say
“you come back to me ok”
I watch machines breath for you
machines do everything for you
I feel as helpless as you look
A chaplain says peaceful words
as I dont understand what is happening
I feel you cross over at 11pm
I feel my soul lift with yours
I hold your hand
as you take your last guttural breath
dont know how to walk away from you
kiss your head
kiss you lips
ask for your wedding ring
tears that never end
husband for always
love always wifey
11/11 I love you more

I really loved it. It brought tears to my eyes but I'm sure its nothing compared to what you went through. It was such an amazing poem.

I feel a sadness in the words. Story was very good. You took me on a wild trip. Ending left me confuse. A strong and intense poem. A excellent poem.
