On My Suicidal Husband

I cannot fight the dead
Or those that want to die

I cannot will you to life
Or happiness

And I have no desire to be
The keeper of your fate

That I lay squarely at your feet

Choose to go or choose to stay

Life is a dance to be lived
But only by those who hear the music

Dance lover dance

And when the music fades
Take your exit as you please

For I cannot fight the dead
Or those that want to die

    Well written, Erin.
    I hope it is a product of your vivid imagination and not based on real life.

    Nice powerful poem. If its real life dont be hesitant to commit him to a mental hospital for a while. He will be fine eventually with your support. Best of luck
