Suicide Poem

I have a friend who lost a son to suicide. I too have lost loved ones, even a small grandson, but realized, through my friend, that his kind of loss was likely the most devastating kind. His son was a great young man who unknowingly had trials which brought him to take his own life. I wrote this poem for my friend, and for all who experience such a loss.

Troubled Heart

© Ron Tranmer
The moment you took your life
I felt mine ended too.
If I could only turn back time
thereís so much I would undo.

I didnít see the warning signs.
You held them deep inside.
Struggles you were going through
you did so well to hide.

Iím left with guilt and sorrow,
and confusion as to why
you didnít tell me of your pain
and felt you had to die.

Every soul is precious
in the eyes of God above.
He will heal your troubled heart
with His never ending love.

Iíll put my faith in Him,
as I pray my heart will mend,
and keep you in my memory
Ďtill Iím with you once again.
