All of my life
I've been waiting for you,
but what's the point in waiting
for someone that only is your dreams come true?

I remember what you like,
but in case I forget I have one photograph,
but the things I will remember most
are things like your smile and things like your laugh.

I will always remember
sitting in the front of your car,
with music playing too loud,
playing air guitar.

When you pulled the trigger in your car,
there was a pink blanket in the make seat,
and that pink blanket was mine,
You had seen wins, and loss, and now showed me defeat.

You thought since I grew up
and you knew that I would be okay,
that it was finally time to end your life,
but did you know you did it on my birthday?

You said in the note
that I added four years to your life,
and I wish I could have added more,
maybe if I would you'd have had a wife.

I don't have many memories, but the ones I do I'll never forget,
because even though I was only four
I remember what you looked like on the outside
and so much more.

I think of you every day,
and often shed a tear,
you would be turning fifty
next year.

All of my life
I'll wait for you,
and in Heaven if your there,
you'll know what you put me through.

My bestfriend and first love committed suicide last week March 7th 2012 because his girlfriend wanted to take a break and he loved her too much. He went home and took one of his fathers guns and stood outside in front of his dad who was there trying to help and shot himself through the heart ending his life instantly. I never got to say goodbye or tell him how much I still loved him and how much I care. My heart and soul have been shattered because of this. R.I.P Austin M. Ames

My cousin also committed suicide. He left behind so many and didn't realize it. Before he took his life though, he took the life of his ex-girlfriend. It was horrible tragedy to two families and through her family's grief and anger they forgave him. I am sorry for your loss.
