I’ve talked a man from jumping off a bridge
Into the dark waters swirling down below
He told me that he had not got much time to live
And that he thought that it was time for him to go
I told him that he should have some consideration
For all those that he would leave behind
I said, “It may provide you with an answer to your problem
But those you leave behind will have agony of mind”.
I said,” You may think you have a got problem
And the consequences of that fill your mind with fear
But one thing you should always remember
Is that you have got many friends who hold you dear”,
“These fiends will try and help you solve your problem
And will stick with you in your hour of need
All it needs is a bit of effort on your part
And together I am sure you will succeed”
After a few minutes of earnest conversation
The man looked up and said,”Oh.I see!
Iam rather pleased we had a little chat
Because the man I was speaking to was me
I’d managed to convince myself of the folly
Of what jumping from the bridge would do to me
That things might be a lot better in the future
So I thought I’d hang on and wait and see.
