How could we have seen pain so deep
No words came to the surface
Despite everything he knew he had
He could not find a purpose
We laughed with him but never knew
The grief and fear he felt
And he couldn’t find the voice to say
‘I’m in trouble, please send help’
Silence left to ache, to wonder
What we could have done or said
To admit it he would lose himself..
And so we lost him instead.
Love you always Billy. 1991-2010
