Time heals all wounds is not necessarily true for survivors of suicide. Time is necessary
for healing, but time is not enough. Shared feelings enrich and lead to growth and healing.
From within the circle, we talk about the past, I hear cries for fathers,
mothers, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters and friendships we thought
And we ache for the arms of a loved one of a time too short lived and
of questions left more piercing than a knife. Oh, the questions come
hauntingly, pressing your mind, when a loved one takes their own life.
In the Circle I dare reach out my hand.
In the Circle help me see there's a plan for me.
And my story becomes yours as we struggle through the pain.
In the Circle, we remember their names. We have daydreams of the future
about how we thought it might be, with regrets of conversations
that might have been the key.
We are angry and confused as we struggle for our breath. Our
hearts cry out in anger in what has been labeled a senseless death.
We have good days and bad days, and without a trace, in the
circle, tears and smiles meet as we gather strength together.
Sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters
and friendships felt deep in our souls,
memories and moments left clinging to us,
and questions of how to let go.
