I Bid Thee All Farewell

I bid thee all farewell.
Please your tears, for me, do not expel.
I cherish all your adoring presents;
At my last push-off it warms my icy essences. 
If the overwhelming urge arrives
Please do not rise.
Hopefully this doesn’t brew hate,
No eyes should behold my present state.
Now I must lay my head
Beneath the ground you now tread.
To heart take my words said
Because I’m to now lay eternally in this bed.

    Sounds like you were in a very dark place. Sometimes people go through with permanent solutions for temporary problems. A close friends 28 year old son committed suicide a few weeks ago, the pain it has caused is unimaginable.

    Honestly, I have a very dark imagination which a lot of times has no bearing on my life. One can’t help what their imagination conjures up. I’ve never contemplated suicide nor would I ever.
