Suicide Prevention Week will touch the hearts of many. And none more so than my friend Marie who lost her Sister earlier this year.
It is only now that she feels able to talk about it but it is still a painful and difficult concept to express.
She asked if I would help her to write about it and, using her emotions, I wrote this poem “The Brilliant Light You Saw”. Marie knows she is not alone in dealing with the loss of a loved one in such sad circumstances – and she hopes that others will read this, recognise it and hopefully find some comfort in it. It helps to share – so please do!
