To a Woman Who Fell off the Edge

Very sad and thought provoking

I always wonder why

You left your family that day,

Why you chose the rope,

And not another day on earth?

ย I wonder if I stopped

And said the right words,

If youโ€™d still be here today.

]If I offered up my small wisdoms,

As you had given me yours.]

But I didnโ€™t phone you saying,

โ€œItโ€™s going to be okay.โ€

But I let the moment pass,

And a few weeks later, you died.

Did you know you were my hero?

The personโ€™s whose life,

I wanted to emulate.

Years have passed;ย I wonder if,

Words wouldโ€™ve mattered.
