Poems About Death of a loved one #1

Charlotte Bronte: On the Death of Anne Bronte 

THERE ‘s little joy in life for me,

And little terror in the grave;

I ‘ve lived the parting hour to see

Of one I would have died to save.


Calmly to watch the failing breath,

Wishing each sigh might be the last;

Longing to see the shade of death

O’er those belovèd features cast.


The cloud, the stillness that must part

The darling of my life from me;

And then to thank God from my heart,

To thank Him well and fervently;


Although I knew that we had lost

The hope and glory of our life;

And now, benighted, tempest-tossed,

Must bear alone the weary strife



Poems about death of a loved one #2

James Aldrich : A Death Bed


HER suffering ended with the day,

Yet lived she at its close,

And breathed the long, long night away,

In statue-like repose.


But when the sun in all his state

Illumed the eastern skies,

She passed through Glory’s morning gate

And walked inParadise




Poems about death of a loved one #3

T.E Brown: Dora


HE knelt upon her brother’s grave,

My little girl of six years old–

He used to be so good and brave,

The sweetest lamb of all our fold;

He used to shout, he used to sing,

Of all our tribe the little king–

And so unto the turf her ear she laid,

To hark if still in that dark place he played.

No sound! no sound!

Death’s silence was profound;

And horror crept

Into her aching heart, and Dora wept.

If this is as it ought to be,

My God, I leave it unto Thee.
