It’s just another Tuesday


It’s just another Tuesday

Just another day

Or so I thought! 

In the morning I didn’t take your call and texted you

I’m so busy at work

and that I would ring you later 

after work


By lunchtime I got a call

That shocked me to the core

To say that you had hung yourself

And that you were no more 


I screamed your name and cried 

Letting all my emotions out

But yet finding it impossible  

to take in the words that had  just come out 

It was like being in a nightmare 

And I couldn’t get out


Then I was driven to your house 

Doctor and Gardaí were there 

Paramedics had just finished working on you

and hope was now no more

You’d passed over to the other side

Now on heavens shore


I walked into the sitting room to see you laying there

On the sofa

Your top all torn

From where paramedics had 

been working on you


Myself and Vicky put a new top on you

Your dignity now restored

Whilst Vicky said a prayer over you

To our lady the mother of Our Lord


When I was alone with you

Your skin was still a little warm

I saw the red mark on your neck

And swore I’d love you forever more

You lay there so peacefully

No more struggles for you

Only shock and sadness 

now left for your family to endure
