We thought that you were happy
by Unknown Author

We thought that you were happy,
we must have all been blind,
we didn’t know your suffering
we didn’t know your mind,
you have left all our hearts aching
and we are not sure how we’ll cope
if only you had talked it over
we may have found you hope ……

We thought that you were happy
but yours was a troubled mind
hardly a hint, hardly a clue
how could we be so blind ?
You chose to go from this place
and onto somewhere new
may you find peace at last
our love goes with you too…….
                                          


They tell us that suicide is the greatest piece of cowardice... that suicide is wrong; when it is quite obvious that there is nothing in the world to which every man has a more unassailable title than to his own life and person.
by Arthur Schopenhauer



To die proudly when it is no longer possible to live proudly. Death of one's own free choice, death at the proper time, with a clear head and with joyfulness, consummated in the midst of children and witnesses~ so that an actual leave-taking is possible while he who is leaving is still there.
by Friedrich Nietzsche, Expeditions of an Untimely Man



Heaven Haven
by Gerard Manley Hopkins

I HAVE desired to go
Where springs not fail,
To fields where flies no sharp and sided hail
And a few lilies blow.

And I have asked to be        
Where no storms come,
Where the green swell is in the havens dumb,
And out of the swing of the sea.
