A Suicide Poem: Why?
was there anything,
i could have done?
were there two words i could have said,
to make you re-think it?
family wondering why?
why would you leave something as precious as life behind!?
life is a gift,
a gift from God.
why would you give it all away?
your voice of suicide still haunts me,
in my sleep i hear you, but i can't see your face,
you're like another color turning to grey.
you're fading out of my memories.
i try and touch you,
but you leave this world, leaving me wondering ,
why the hell would you leave me and your family
In memory of Jamie Roper who committed suicide by hanging him self on 12/15/09
Katy, I can't take away any of your pain. But thank you for sharing this. Because anyone who is going through the suicide of their loved one, will find some form of comfort in this poem. How do any of us understand suicide? I just don't know. Maybe others can share with us, their knowledge.
God Bless you,
