Sympathy verses are a great way to add a nice touch to a message of sympathy. These sample verses can be used in expressing your thoughts to someone on the loss of a husband ...
We have many men who make up our lives
Father, brother, grandfather and son
But the one that we call husband is the one
who we attach our heart and live as one
With the solemn oath that until death do we part
God gives us many gifts in life, parents, children
even friends; But the special gift is in a blessed
union to the one true love of our lives
That is the one that we call husband
Lucky is the woman who finds that special man
The one true love from which all love springs
The joy of children that we call our own
I am so grateful for that one man I found
That I chose to be my husband top

To My Dear And Loving Husband
By Anne Bradstreet
If ever two were one, then surely we.
If ever man were lov'd by wife, then thee.
If ever wife was happy in a man,
Compare with me, ye women, if you can.
I prize thy love more than whole Mines of gold
Or all the riches that the East doth hold.
My love is such that Rivers cannot quench,
Nor ought but love from thee give recompetence.
Thy love is such I can no way repay.
The heavens reward thee manifold, I pray.
Then while we live, in love let's so persevere
That when we live no more, we may live ever.
To A Husband
By Anne Kingsmill Finch
This is to the crown and blessing of my life,
The much loved husband of a happy wife;
To him whose constant passion found the art
To win a stubborn and ungrateful heart.
And to the world by tenderest proof discovers
They err, who say that husbands can't be lovers
With such return of passion, as is due,
Daphnis I love, Daphnis my thoughts pursue;
Daphnis, my hopes and joys are bounded all in you.
Even I, for Daphnis' and my promise' sake,
What I in woman censure, undertake.
But this from love, not vanity proceeds;
You know who writes, and I who 'tis that reads.
Judge not my passion by my want of skill;
Many love well, though they express it ill;
And I your censure could with pleasure bear,
Would you but soon return, and speak it here. top
