A Simple Death
Age Group: Adult
A death occured within my space,
a beloved person who I loved.
She took the life of her sick son
and then took her own life.
The sad, sad news was delivered to me by her husband.
upon a Monday morn.
I was upon much shock but cried
without abandon, acknowledged her dying.
Since then, which much research,
did I delve,
without much information
there was not much to tell.
But wait says she, (Ruth)
I have much to say!
This has been a long time coming
and I have much to pay.
I have kept a secret so dear
that no one should hear
you all will not understand
as I channel through this hand.
She has been my housekeeper and friend
She has respected my solemn trend
I relied upon her as I can
She being the only one I can depend.
I speak through her now to tell you all
I want you to know I cannot cannot call
to the ones who Know me best
they cannot hear my request
This pain I cannot take,
from all of you, who made this life
there is no way, I would not burden
you with my strife.
This pain alone I must bear,
you cannot repair
this lesson I prepare
for all to be aware.
Please reckon my admission
of guilt without remission
to those who gave permission
go to thy perdition!
I am here within her, as she writes,
she knows me inside out
she hears me, this I know,
and she writes as she hears.
So those who have judged me wrongly,
I do curse, as I am angry enough to do so,
you have not given me the strength I needed
to pass through this hole.
This conversation is ended and now she is gone
she has passed to the great beyond,
she will be missed by me,
as I will cling to her memory.
Author's Notes: I lost a beloved client this last week. She was the kind of woman that would give you the last shirt she was wearing in order that you would be dressed. I loved the saying: "It's tammy day". I will miss much more than that. She took the life of her 28 year old son after many years of putting up with the burden of living with an person who had aspergers syndrome. It is a rare form of autism. She then took her own life and left her husband bereft of a wife and son. This made a huge hole in my heart, I don't think I can quite fill, as I have much more crying to do. Her husband, I cannot speak for him, as I don not know him as well as I knew her. I will miss her terribly!
