These poems are were written instead of a journal for a grief/bereavement session I attended after my wife passed away on 9-6-2004. She died from breast cancer and I am struggling with this loss. We were married 30 yrs and aside from being my wife, she was my best friend. more »

    I have read many of your poems and am absolutely moved beyond words. The pure love you've expressed is nothing less than beautiful! ! I wish you peace and happiness. Your wife was a very lucky woman to know such love. I will watch for more posting from you. Sincerely, Mary

Best Poem of Edward Hammer

What Made My Life

This emptiness I cannot hide
I wish so she were by my side
Try I may to fill that void
With things that we had both enjoyed

But memories cannot replace
A gentle smile or warm embrace
Or things we shared and talked about
The things I need, I am without

I hoped that time would help me see
That life goes on in memory
Though memories don’t make a life
What made my life, was my wife
