The Siren's Song


Loss of a Parent / Family Member through Suicide

The loss of this

.Beautiful mind.

.Unplanned.

You entered a war

You did not

.Understand.

Fought tirelessly

Bare knuckle

.Life fighter.

Tried hard to hold on

Grip tighter

.Tighter.

For fear

They may think

You felt no love

.At all.

You struggled with life

And the

.Siren’s Call.

But NO

Stop

No need

.To explain.

Your love was a fire

That burnt out

.its flame.

Too soon

YOU

Our mountain

.our hero.

Our vibrant volcano

Our ‘10’

(One – zero)

Sleep gently

mummy (daddy) of ours

You gave quality of years

in

.Power Hours.

Never selfish

NO

.Often brave.

Black dog danced

To twisted rave

Sleep safe now

pain is done

My ray

From a

.Perfect Sun.

Peeking

Through cracks

Light - seeping

Right back

You drifted right

.Back to Black.

-

Holding hard

Onto

Edges of time

Stark days

We hoped

our love

would fix

In a

Hundred ways

If we tried

Hard enough

Smiled

Hard enough

Cried

Hard enough

We could

ease

you

back

Like a hand

To glove

-

But sometimes

We can’t be

Where life thinks

We

Should be

And we salute

Forever more

Our mum (dad)

Our whole

Our core

So, warm

And bright &

full of fire

Elements sparked

Simmered

.

Tired

.

.

But

.

You

made us

Who we are

And proud

Of you

Forever more

And though

We shared

A bumpy ride

Forever

you are by my side

We love

You near

We love

You far

Eternal

B E C A U S E

Of

Who

You

Are
