This is for a friend who passed away yesterday.She took her own life because she wanted to escape from the pain she had been hiding after all these years.

You're a fearsome lioness, 
and also a warrior Goddess. 
Never a damsel in distress, 
and was never a princess.

You always saw me as a fighter, 
whenever I feel like I'm a quitter. 
You always tell me to fight harder, 
you taught me how to become stronger.

But you changed suddenly, 
you stopped being bubbly. 
You stopped shining brightly, 
you disappeared constantly. 

Whenever I would run to you, 
you always know what to do. 
Not knowing you needed me too, 
for I didn't have any clue. 

Why didn't you tell me anything?! 
Why didn't you say something?! 
You know I'd be listening, 
until we are both crying.

You were the one who needed saving!
You were the one who was drowning! 
You were the one who was hurting! 
You were the one who was suffering! 

I remember the promises that we had, 
there for each other through good and bad. 
Whenever we're happy and sad, 
there for each other even when we're mad. 

You ended your own misery, 
I never knew you were in agony. 
For you are the girl who's bubbly, 
the one who's bright and sunny. 

At this moment I just want to be alone, 
ignoring all the messages from my phone. 
The pain that you can feel to the bone, 
it's turning my heart into stone.

Always very tragic when somebody close to us does this - we never really know their inner pain. Some souls carry a great burden and just want out - the sheer weight of what the previous generation did not face spills over and people with a sensitive disposition take some of the karma - it's unfair because it should be evenly distributed. Your goodbye poem to your friend was enough - there's nothing else you could've done.
