Brother Death Poem

Poem About Loss Of Brother And Friend

Dear readers, my name is Mark. My big hearted little brother took his life away with a gun April 3rd 2014. So thoughtful of others and kind he was. He let emotions and resentment of rejection get to him. He suffered headaches, and doctors gave him too many pills all mixed up, and
sad he was. I can only pray that he has found peace and that God does forgive him. Too proud and afraid of more rejection for apologies and now we suffer with his loss. My sweet, caring, kind little brother, Clive.

I will never know the whole reason why
You felt you had to die.

Your life had meaning and you are loved
By people here and God above.

Your caring heart and kind ways
Make me think of better days.

We all make mistakes and should learn form them.
Don't hold a grudge, best to forgive.

Hard to say I'm sorry in life.
Pride leads to so much strife.

For so long you were in pain,
Suffered so much from the strain.

People can be cruel and say harsh words.
Lots of pain and little to gain.

I send to you my love,
Wishing you well and give you a hug.

In God I trust to take your hand,
Bring you to tranquility and peace.

Rest well, little brother and my friend.
I will miss you to the end.

I know how that feels. I lost my 19 year old brother by suicide last year 29th August. I didn't understand why he chose to die but I hope he is happy now as an angel. Does someone have tips on how to cope with this? I really don't know how and I would like to stop crying every time I see something of him.

My brother also killed himself with a gun. He was 23 and left behind a 3 years old son. It was 10 years ago today. There is so much stigma attached to talking about suicide.
I miss my brother everyday.
