Under The Moonlite Sky

As she sits alone under the moonlit sky,
she thinks of the past and begins to cry.

She sits alone and is not sure what to do,
she knows that soon her life will be through.

All the pain she feels is from the past,
she knows it's up to her how long it will last.

Her family and friends didn't listen to what she said,
it's because of that,now she is dead.

As they lay her to rest and tell her goodbye,
they hope she's at peace and begin to cry.

                         Colleen Marie Bono

Is this what you really want to leave behind as your legacy? I hope not, because we'd all miss someone like you so sweet. Best Wishes Always Colleen, Bill

Sorry you feel like, Colleen (what you said in other comment box). I am very blessed that I have never suffered depression. I simply do not dwell on sad things and I've always been very happy. My husband has depression and I've seen firsthand the other side of the coin. If you are not on meds, you might find them very beneficial. Luv, Andrea

Colleen this beautiful poem cause me to think of what Jesus said to his followers. Let th dead bury the dead, come and follow me. You see Jesus was the life itself. Life is what they were following when they followed Him. Smile, sin cerely, Love, Moses

No one ever thinks their child or friend is going to take their life. It is a very painful thing to leave behind to one's family and friends. This is a sad story, but well written. Thanks for sharing and thank you for your comment on my poem. Caroline.

This sadness penetrates my soul. I totally understand what it feels like to not be taken seriously or to not feel appreciated. Great write. you are in my thoughts. thanks for your words on broken reflection.

Very good but sad couplet. Sometimes our family and friends don't take us seriously because they are with us everyday and our emotions become part of the persona that we reflect to them. We can't change our past only go to the future. Forgive yourself and others because God has already do so. Keep writing. Sara
