We Love You (Poem)

On this World Suicide Prevention Day, and every day, may we send our love out to all who are hurting…


We Love You

Child, I don’t know

Why you experience such pain

And even though I’m grown up

I have no way to explain-

Yet I can tell you from experience

That life unfolds in stages

And sometimes on our journeys

We just need a few more pages-

So please know you’re supported

Even though you feel alone-

And talk to someone that you trust

Or call them on the phone-

And know no matter how you feel

You are needed on this Earth

To share your gifts and smile

And to see your dreams give birth-

So I write you this love letter

To ask you please to stay

To tell you that we love you

And to send this love your way~
