Silent winds upon the sands
To chance the dice
Feel the caress of a lover’s hand
To spin the wheel
See the rising of the sun
To deal the cards
The taste of tears and sweat
Love the greatest game of chance
We all shall play, but who shall win
But none unless you take the chance
. . .

I look out at a world that has no need for me. If I ended, a few would mourn and mainly because it is the thing to do. A memorial, “Never again” – never again will someone die due to too much or too little of their medication. Writing letters, making statements on TV, news clips of how society failed the lonely. But the failure of people to accept that our society has changed from being family oriented to being a society of individuals is just as damaging. The support of family and lifelong friends is mainly gone and rebuilding those ties, well I don’t see that happening.
