Gravity holds me and wants to pull me down

My heart barely beating while I'm barely breathing

Feels as though I'm anticipating your return

I take a shallow breath and my heart skips a beat

Then, I remember again...that you're gone

I take a deep breath in and my heart sinks

I let the breath out slowly as the tears build

I close my eyes and shake my hands...

Reality has hit me once more.

Tammy, That was beautifully written. Brought tears to my eyes. It's been 7 long, hard, yrs. since I lost my 26 yr. old son to suicide. Seems like only yesterday. Thank you for writing in... Brenda Richison
