Today precisely when I got the call
I was asked to meet with management
they were there one and all
to celebrate an anniversary
my work was appreciated all the years
bunch of flowers the size of a garden
I could hardly hold back the tears
it happened precisely when I got the call
heartbroken, with a smile on my mask
there followed gifts, and money
in the accolades I should bask
at the same time I received the call
jokes were made and I laughed too loud
my heart screaming, with anguish
wanting to cry, but too proud
to let them see my distress
relief when they were done
and I could leave the meeting
to finish my work, and finally run
on this day I received the call
the only anniversary for me was the call
received this day four years ago
emotional destruction of us all
when you took your life in desperation
now I have lit a candle in your name
with my heart in quandary
no support I could expect, came
bless you Eddy all the same.
no grave to put the flowers
your ashes went into the sea
every time I stand at the shore
I know that was your favourite place to be.

Inside, a deep insight, the mask you have to put on your face
and then you smile at the people but the mask is also hiding your feelings.
The feeling you loose someone,
I can feel a lots of emotions in this pure poem,
