Why Indeed

Summer 2014 moon by SnaggleTooth

Why can someone like Robin
Bring me to teary Laughter,
Then Become so depressed
To take his life away-
When once he was so gay
n funny, n foolish-
He cut me up in silliness,
Now has brought me low
To think-
Life is so unpredictable
n Death the only certainty.
Why did he rush to meet it?

If only we could flash back and find it never really happened:(

I wonder if it's difficult to be someone who everyone expects to be so "up" all the time, to be suffering from severe depression. I can't imagine the pain he must have been experiencing to take such a final step.

Gran Annie, he was one of a kind n irreplaceable-

Lynn, depression is always tough, n why he couldn't wait one more day will never be known. Someone else I've known since very young did suicide recently too, n I'm pretty depressed about these losses.

All real comedians seem to suffer with depression, it seems to go hand to hand, but I don't know why. A few years back I suffered with real depression, and it's probably the time I wrote some of my funniest posts on my blog.

I was watching a film by Robin Williams on the flight out to the States, it was so good, both funny and sad, and he was so good at that. He will be missed.

LLcoolJ, It's strange how someone can put on an act better than reacting to emotions from real life sometimes. We're better at helping others stay cheery than for ourselves. Glad you got to see a good film with him- Bet it's the one I haven't seen yet. He was a very good actor indeed!

Yes, we will never understand why he did it. So sad. I wonder if he left a note?

I loved him since Mork & Mindy. Such a loss.

Jannie, Mork was hilarious! I have Bicentenial Man in my VHS pile somewhere too- I remember some X-rated comedy stand-up on HBO in the '80's was a scream also.
