Suicide …

Taking a word for a walk inside my mind,
past the cornfields of my childhood
I stooped to pick a flower ..
don’t linger there,
walk by ..
I urge myself ..
poppies bloom a day and die …
and I think of you, my sister,
with your eyes of summer-sky-blue ..
and the day when all the poppies cried:
that day you died.

    Dear Marya, you are so sad. And yet, that very sadness speaks of a strength ; of a faith. Perhaps even of a gladness of a kind. For where can sorrow come from, but a tender soul that sees more than what’s there, and is glad. God bless you.

    Jamie.

    Thank you, dear Jamie, her birthday is in November so this time of the year is particularly difficult.

    God bless you and your family, too .. and He will.
