Short Poems

1. Behind Bars
My husband sits in jail,
a prisoner of his own mistakes.
Behind bars, he awaits
the chance to redeem his name.

2. The Weight of Time
Days turn into weeks,
weeks into months without end.
My husband bears the weight of time,
praying for freedom once again.

3. The Visiting Room
I visit my husband in the visiting room,
our conversations kept short and sweet.
We speak of dreams and memories,
yet our time together feels incomplete.

4. Hope for the Future
I hold on to hope for the future,
believing my husband can change.
Behind bars he may be confined,
but his spirit remains free to range.

Medium Poems

Behind Bars

Behind bars, my love, you reside
A place where dreams and hope subside
Your absence leaves me in a daze
With memories of our bygone days

The walls are grey, the air is stale
And time has become a never-ending trail
I pray for your release each day and night
Hoping soon you’ll be back in sight

But until then, I promise to stay strong
To hold on to memories and sing our song
Together we’ll conquer this trial
And love will prevail with a brighter smile

Incarceration Blues

Incarceration blues, a melody so sad
My heart aches for a love that I had
The world outside is a different place
While you serve time in that confined space

The nights are long, the days are cold
Without you, my heart feels old
But I hold on to the hope that remains
That soon you’ll be free from these chains

Until then, I’ll keep the faith burning bright
And hold on to our love with all my might
For nothing can tear us apart
Not even these bars that have set us apart.

Long Poems

The Pain of Separation

My husband sits behind cold, hard bars,
Locked away from the world and ours.
He’s paid the price for his mistakes,
But my heart aches with each passing day.

Our love is stronger than steel,
But this distance can make us feel unreal.
He’s constantly on my mind,
And leaving all our memories behind.

I visit him as much as I can,
Hoping to touch his hand,
Longing for the warmth of his embrace,
Even in this cold, loveless space.

Our children miss him dearly,
As they try to hold back tears,
But we remain strong and steadfast,
Praying that our love will last.

Though his body may be locked away,
Our hearts remain entwined each day.
The pain of separation is hard to bear,
But we will endure and love with care.

“The Heavy Heart of a Wife Left Behind”

Behind bars you sit, my love
A place where no one ever wants to be
A world that’s cold and dark and grim
A place where only desperation reigns

And yet you are the light that guides me
Your love is what I cling to like a lifeline
In my heart I hold the memories we shared
And the moments that make life worth living

I remember our wedding day
The joy that shone in your eyes as you took my hand
The promises we whispered softly
As we pledged our hearts and lives together

I remember the sound of your laughter
The way you used to hold me in your arms
The way you always knew just what to say
To make me feel like everything would be okay

Now I sit in our home alone
Wondering where you are and what you’re doing
I imagine you walking the halls of that place
With chains around your wrists and ankles

But in my heart, you are still my love
And I will stand by you no matter what comes our way
I will write you letters and send my love
And I will wait for you to come back to me someday

For love can conquer all, even prison walls
And there’s no distance too great for heart and soul
So take comfort, my love, in the thought
That you are still the one I cherish most

And though we may be apart right now
I know that our love will always be strong
So I will carry on, and wait for the day
When you will finally come back home where you belong
