Sympathy Poems – 20 Poems about Empathy, Pity and Condolence

The desire to feel sympathy for each other is one of the most beautiful qualities that we possess as humans. The human condition is one of fundamental aloneness.

We give great compassion to the person in pain as we reach out and express our sympathies with another human being in pain. They know they are practically alone, but at least they know that people care about they and try to understand him.

1. Title: “Sending Sympathy”

I extend my deepest sympathy,
For your recent loss, my friend.
In this difficult time, lean on me,
A helping hand I’ll extend.

I’m truly sorry for your pain,
Words may falter, but love remains.
Should you need someone to share the strain,
Call on me, and together we’ll sustain.

Grief’s journey is heavy to bear,
But you’re not alone, I’m here to care.
If solace eludes you, I’m ready to share,
In your sorrow, let my friendship declare.

Sending warmth and strength your way,
For brighter tomorrows, day by day.
In times of darkness, don’t hesitate to say,
I’m here for you, come what may.
