I'm sure he was a wonderful man,
the best husband.
He probably made you
coffee in the morning
with just enough cream
to turn it sweet
and three
lumps
of
sugar.

He probably had one of those
bright smiles
that could make the street lamps
and even the sun
sparkle with jealousy.
He probably took your little
black toy poodle
for walks on rainy days
for fear that the chill
would make you ill.

I'm sure his HEARTBEAT
was the lullaby that rocked you
to sleep at night
when nothing else could. I'm sure
he held you closer than
your skin and clothes allowed

and let you breathe in
his intoxicating aroma.

Every night you were together
made you believe
that magic does exist.
I thought it would be cool to write a poem from the perspective of someone who didn't know the person that died, like a funeral planner or a neighbor that simply stopped by to offer condolences:iconcupcakelaplz:

If you wanna check out my other poems, they can be located in the "Poems" folder in my gallery:iconlachoirplz:

It gave me goosebump, and I liked it all. :heart:
I can only imagine how does it feel losing someone like a husband...it's already painful losing a person we love, but a husband...it's a piece of heart that dies...

Wonderfully written! I really like this part:

"He probably had one of those bright smiles that could make the street lamps and even the sun sparkle with jealousy."

Such beautiful imagery. :star:
