A Poem and Reflection about coping and dealing with suicide.

Fall has come, the leaves are scattered
Sometimes itís really scary, has it really mattered?
Sometimes itís really scary, why do I feel so shattered?

One mere leaf has freely fallen to the ground
Yet its single drop has caused the world to hear its sound

One among many, what makes it my concern?
Its life has touched my own and fostered what I yearn

No I simply canít go out and rake away
The withered lifeless leaf thatís freely fallen down today

But I can let it rest if Iím free to let it go
Yet the freedom that sustains my own life at this point seems so low

The harshness of winter looms on ahead
The coldness is surely something that I dread

But the warmth is there around you - youíre never all alone
Loved ones are reaching out to comfort you at home

Together we will grow and in our hearts weíll know
That love draws all together despite the changes in the weather

And Spring brings forth our life-line, the trees, with leaves anew
And each oneís so important, especially me and you
And yes that leaf that freely fell will always be a part of you.

A Great Resource for anyone dealing with Grief - Leo Buscaglia:

The Fall of Freddie the Leaf is a classic fable for anyone who has suffered a permanent loss. The tale is an inspiring allegory illustrating the delicate balance between life and death - as Freddie the Leaf and his companion leaves change with the passing seasons, finally falling to the ground with a winterís snow. The book offers solace to adults and children alike. The Fall of Freddie the Leafís message that death is part of the natural cycle of life has comforted countless men, women, and children worldwide. This classic fable is, ďDedicated to all children who have ever suffered a permanent loss, and to the grown ups who could not find a way to explain it.Ē

Thanks for the explanation of the seasons and renewal of life. I did know of it and believed it, but reading it here has made it absolutely more believable and comforting. You do know how to comfort grieving people. Such a nice write. Glad I saw it here.
