Death of a Friend Poem

This poem is written in memory of my friend from my scout troop. I hope you never have to experience what it is like to have a friend commit suicide.

Garden Of Memories

Seeing your body as white as snow,
One look at your coffin and we already know.

You didn't have to do it,
You didn't have to die.

You could have told us,
We could have helped you.

Now we all only have One question,

You gave us no warning,
Not even a delay.

Not even enough time to say,
