This is beautiful poem. I know the feeling you are expressing here. It is so hard when we realize we are loosing the one we love, and though we'd like to not look mortality in the face, we know that they need us more. My husband died to cancer two years ago and after 61 years, I know will still love him forever.

I can feel the emotional pain and reluctance to face an awful truth. It's understandable, the need to flee from pain. Last year I lost both my brother and mother to cancer. Wanting to go and hide was strong, but I stayed and nursed, learning a lot about myself, and the relationships at the same time. Well written, I look forward to reading more!

Wonderful love story in this poem! How the perfect love will make both involved better than before, supporting and lifting the other up without any harm to either one. Its 100/100 in love and its also about sacrifice. sometimes in the grief of losing that love for whatever reason. Simple, rhyming pattern but emotionally pulls at the heart strings.

This is a lovely sonnet written clearly of live long love of a lost spouse.
It shows that you had peace once you accepted that she would die
and stayed with her during the horrible way a person changes during
cancer. It is hard, I know. Both my parents died of cancer.
Sorry for your loss.
Keep writing
Joan

My heart goes out to you for your departed wife , I can relate when I lost my love. There are so many emotions you feel at the same time.
One would think you losing your mind, to find out later he had cancer and never told, for he didn't want me to treat him different.
Thank you for sharing.

Your poem is an achingly moving description of emotional pain at how to deal with impending loss of a beloved. From failing courage in the face of illness, to grief, sorry, and eventual acceptance, your poem is rich with authenticity and sincerity. My condolences to you on your loss. (My mother died when she was 52.)

Oh Jay, that was hard for both of you. My husband died of cancer when he was 46, thirty-four years ago, not even old enough to see his sons through school. The carer goes through so much, the anger, the sadness, the pain. We tend to forget for a while just what our loved one must be going through, so wrapped up in our own pain. Then common sense prevails and we know there is nothing we can do but give our love and support totally. Your poem says so much that I understood, Jay. Life can be so unfair. I'm glad you took comfort in the joys you'd shared together. Big hugs, my friend. :)) Sandra xx

I have just lost my partner of 30 yrs, I can understand your sentiments. My friend was only 65. It is a natural response to death, to not accept the finality of the findings. Nothing can be a balm to our soul, except the knowledge that one day we will meet again. Blessings, Kay.

I am sorry for your loss. This piece is heart-wrenching and so true. Death is indeed a harsh reality and you captured all the raw emotions exactly right. Your writing shows much experience and understanding. You are one to learn from.

Powerfully poignant. Turning away from the pain until you were able to achieve acceptance of your wife's impending death. Condolences to you. All the best. LIZ
