Please Don't Follow Through

Someday
you may
break our hearts
and finally
follow through
on the threat.

When
all the doctors,
all the pills,
all the talk therapy
have failed to
bring you
out of the darkness,
you may plunge us
into even more
darkness
with one
desperate
act.

You might feel
alone
but you are not
alone.

We are here.

You might feel
lost
but you are not
lost.

We are here.

You might feel
unnecessary
but you are not
unnecessary.

We would grieve
your loss forever.

Please don't
give up.

Please don't
break our hearts.

Please don't
follow through.

  2. Mosk, the pain you experience. The pain she experiences. There are no words I know how to offer except that I feel it with you in your words. You're not alone. The ache caregivers go through for a loved one is the stuff of angels.

  5. My heart hurts from reading this. My best friends just lost their daughter. I know about darkness, but after three long ago attempts, I am here. Each day is new.
