Home Truths

I found this poem on the 'Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide' website. I hope they don't mind me using it.  But I really do want to share this with you. I have read it a number of times and each time that I do its meaning sinks deeper into my soul. This being so may I ask you to also read this several times. Please 

Another day for you to wonder, another day for you to mourn
     It wasn't my intention to go before the coming dawn
     My pain was deep within my heart and troubled head
        It wasn't my intention to go without words said.
My frame of mind seemed normal, or so I heard them say
     It wasn't my intention not to see another day
I did not mean to make you suffer or cause you so much pain
     It wasn't my intention to never see you again.
Despair and confusion left my aching mind unsure
It wasn't my intention to suddenly close life's door
If only I could give you reasons and brush the tears away
    It wasn't my intention to leave you and not stay
I did not mean for you to grieve, now left alone to cry
It wasn't my intention to leave you, forever asking why
As the burdens of life's worries slowly ebb from the heart
      It wasn't my intention to tear your soul apart

The words on the final line "It wasn't my intention to tear your soul apart". I think that really says everything that needs to be said. Self-destruction destroys others too and these tend to be the ones you love, and who love you. Please remember, a single moment of understanding can flood a whole life with meaning.
Good Luck and Take Good Care
