My Darling

My darling, my girl,
Why are you so sad?
Why can't you see that life is not all bad?
You're my angel.
Please don't cry,
I don't understand, so please tell me why?
Your beautiful face,
Your fading smile,
I vow to make you happy for more than just a while.
You're so precious,
Why can't you see?
I beg you to break that chain,
Then you'll be free.
The past is gone,
It's not going to change,
But the future is yours...
For you to arrange,
Live your life,
Be happy, don't cry.
I'm here and now those tears can dry.
I love you, my darling,
Let go of the sorrow,
Because I'm here for you....
Yesterday, today, and tomorrow.

My girlfriend is in prison for taking her husband's life. She was abused very badly by him, and when she was growing up, she was sexually abused, physically abused, and mentally abused. She and her husband got into a fight one night and he ended up dying from the fight. When she went to prison for the death of her husband, her younger kids where adopted. She had to give up her rights, according to the law. She misses them very dearly. I'm trying to find really awesome poems that can relate to her situation. Thank you!

Suicide doesn't take away the pain; it gives it to someone else. I started a blog because I have been affected by people in my life attempting suicide. My wife and I got married on March 6, 2016. Three months later on June 11, she attempted suicide. I didn't even know she was facing this problem. She was depressed but wouldn't talk to me about it. Please help everyone who needs help.

Sometimes we just feel lost. Even though people are there, nothing helps stop that pain, that sadness eating away at our hearts. I almost lost myself to suicide, and if it weren't for my angel, I would be dead right now. She saved me, just as I'm sure you saved your wife. I hope she is well and I hope you are well. Your poem is very beautiful and I hope to read more.

That's true. My boyfriend and I both cut ourselves. We care about each other so much that we're scared of losing each other.
