STOP Teen Suicide Poem

Remembering A Loved One

Someone I knew committed suicide after finding out that he had accidentally made his girlfriend pregnant. He was terrified of what his family would think of him when they found out. He was terrified that they would hate him for his actions. He couldn't live with it. He didn't know that his family and friends were all very forgiving and willing to help. This poem is written from his girlfriend's point of view in remembrance of him and the honorable young man he was, though he had some faults.

I Remember

I remember
You with the curly hair
And the goofy, prideful air.

I remember
Through that silly air,
I could see that you cared.

I remember
When you said to me
My eyes were like the sea.

I remember
That wonderful night,
Though it must not have been right.

I remember
That I was elated;
I never felt deflated.

I remember
That when I told you,
It was far too out of the blue.

I remember
You tried to show joy,
But we both knew the decoy.

I remember
You didn't want this
Because I wasn't your missus.

I remember
That beautiful smile,
The one I hadn't seen in a while.

I remember
That terrible day
When you suddenly went away.

I remember
Receiving the news
That your skin no longer had hues.

I remember
I spent many days
Stumbling around in a haze.

I remember
Me wondering why.
Why did we have to say goodbye?

I remember
I couldn't let go,
But I don't have to; now I know.

I remember
You here in my heart,
So we don't have to be apart.

That really hit home to me because one of my best friends had attempted suicide and it crushed me. She couldn't handle the split family she was living in. I related to her story and her past. I, too, have attempted suicide because I felt all alone. It crushed me when it didn't work. Nobody ever knew. Nobody really cares now, but I have impacted a lot of people in my life, whether it was good or bad. This poem opened my eyes to help me see that the people I have impacted would have been crushed if they had known I had done that.

Thank you for sharing your story, Tmg. It's important that everyone knows the perspectives of all people impacted by suicide: the family, the friends, and the one who feels like it is necessary to end their life, though it is not. Through this understanding of how suicide impacts all, hopefully those contemplating suicide will realize that they are loved and that those who love them are willing to help them through it. Realizing that others care shouldn't add a guilt factor to those contemplating; rather, it should help them realize that there is something to live for.
