you can't. gmail is POP email. only an email account using the IMAP protocol will do what you want. see this article (found just doing a quick google search just to show you) for an overview of the differences between the two. see this thread for a recent thread about it among users here.

If you want to see your emails deleted in your inbox after deleting from your iPhone, follow this.

1) Go to settings>mail>select the Gmail account you created.

2) Scroll all the way down and select Advanced

3) Touch 'Delete from Server', you have the options of Never, Seven Days, When removed from inbox.

4) Once you delete it on the iPhone, it should get deleted or it will be deleted from the server the next time you update your inbox on your phone.
