Love is a wondrous thing. To feel love for someone you will never ever meet in person is a strange and powerful phenomenon. A lot of us are waking up today to a new reality, one in which Robin Williams commits suicide.
It is an exquisitely intolerable reality.
I don’t know about anyone else, but I just want to scream. I want to start screaming and I don’t want to stop. I lost a dear sweet friend. One who made my life more tolerable at times, less dire. I lost a friend who could, with just a few well-timed words, bring me up from the darkness and make my day a little brighter.
And I never ever did anything in return for this friend. It was a one-sided relationship. He gave and he gave and he gave.
I can’t even begin to imagine how Robin’s family and loved ones are feeling today. Their loss must be so excruciatingly painful.
Wasn’t it always an extraordinary thing to see that man smile.
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light. ~ Dylan Thomas
And he did. He gave all of us his extraordinary life. Goodnight, sweet Robin. I love you dearly. Thank you.
LIST OF SUICIDE CRISIS LINES – PLEASE DO NOT BE AFRAID TO MAKE THE CALL. YOU ARE LOVED. YOU MATTER.
Well said. You put your finger, or rather your pen, right on the nerve.
Such a tragic loss… there is another star in the sky tonight…. sigh….. we love you, Robin. so tragic that you didn’t feel that you could reach out to someone.. you are the best…. you set the bar so high for everyone who followed you…. I love your little bit of CRAZY, we should all be so lucky… na noo, na noo.
It is said that as long we remember, It is not forgotten. Robin’s spirit lives everyday in those who he touched. And as such his spirit lives. I have no answers to life, but I can feel his spirit in mine. Robin thank you.
