"In Memory of You

I find an old photograph  
and see your smile.  
As I feel your presence anew,  
I am filled with warmth  
and my heart remembers love.
I read an old card  
sent many years ago  
during a time of turmoil and confusion.  
The soothing words written then  
still caress my spirit  
and bring me peace.

I remember who you used to be  
the laughter we shared  
and wonder what you have become.  
Where are you now,  
Where did you go,  
When the body is left behind  
and the spirit is released to fly?

Perhaps you are the morning bird  
singing joyfully at sunrise,  
or the butterfly that dances  
so carelessly on the breeze  
or the rainbow of colours  
that brightens a stormy sky  
or the fingers of afternoon mist  
delicately reaching over the mountains  
or the final few rays of the setting sun  
lighting up the skies  
edging the clouds with a magical glow.

I miss your being  
but I feel your presence,  
In whatever form you choose to take,  
however you now choose to be.

Your spirit has become for me  
a guardian angel on high  
guiding, advising, and watching over me.

I remember you.  
You are with me  
and I am not afraid."

"The Circle

From within the circle, we talk about the past, I hear cries for fathers, mothers, sons and daughters, brothers and sisters and friendships we thought would last.

And we ache for the arms of a loved one of a time too short lived and of questions left more piercing than a knife. Oh, the questions come hauntingly, pressing your mind, when a loved one takes their own life.

In the Circle I dare reach out my hand.
In the Circle help me see there's a plan for me.

And my story becomes yours as we struggle through the pain.
In the Circle, we remember their names. We have daydreams of the future about how we thought it might be, with regrets of conversations that might have been the key.

We are angry and confused as we struggle for our breath. Our hearts cry out in anger in what has been labeled a senseless death.

We have good days and bad days, and without a trace, in the circle, tears and smiles meet as we gather strength together.
Sons and daughters, husbands and wives, brothers and sisters and friendships felt deep in our souls, memories and moments left clinging to us, and questions of how to let go."

"A Silent Tear
(Author Unknown)

Just close your eyes and you will see
All the memories that you have of me
Just sit and relax and you will find
I'm really still there inside your mind


Don’t cry for me now I'm gone
For I am in the land of song
There is no pain, there is no fear
So dry away that silent tear


Don’t think of me in the dark and cold
For here I am, no longer old
I'm in that place that’s filled with love
Known to you all, as "up above""

"I am still filled with conflicting emotions that I thought I should have been used to by now.
Once in a while I get hit by a gut wrenching feeling that knocks the wind out of me. Out of nowhere a torrent of feelings filled with never ending tears and sorrow fill my eyes and my entire being.
I thought that by now I would have gotten used to the ups and downs of loosing you. But I guess there is no getting used to that. This is my norm now, my reality and I need to accept it.
You are ever so present in everything that I am doing, but once in a while and out of nowhere I see myself gazing deeply into myself and wandering about you.
Emotions on top of many unresolved emotions keep on piling up, pressing me, dwarfing me, drowning me, making me seem so small, so insignificant.
Emotions that are demanding a lot of me but nothing seems to work. Taking their toll on me and our loved ones.
Emotions... how much I hate you and how much I need you.
Emotions... please leave alone. Stop bothering me. Let me enjoy my Bro's beautiful memories without breaking down.
Emotions... please stay with me. Keep me company. Keep on knocking me down. Keep on reminding me of how I miss my beautiful brother.
Emotions... how much I need you and how much I loathe you.
I love you Bro. Every single beautiful emotion that I have is for you and every single bad emotion is a reminder of how much I miss you and I need you.
Please help me Robin Lcfc Ali Robin Ali to channel my emotions in the right way. In a way that will help me preserve your beautiful memory from now until eternity.
I love you with all of my emotions."

"In Memory of My Brother

So much sorrow,
with infinite pain,
The emotions inside,
I could never explain.

My brother has left,
as I stand here and cry.
My burning tears,
are asking me why.

I'll cherish those memories,
both of us shared.
He was a person,
that genuinely cared.

I miss him so much,
just can't say goodbye,
I know he'd want me,
to keep my head up real high.

I loved him so much,
my brother and dear friend,
I wish I could wake,
and this nightmare would end.

But now I must let him,
just rest in peace
His memory and image,
I shall never release."

This tribute was added by Kristie Townsend on 28th June 2017

"I will wait for you...
I will wait for you...
Though we never had a chance to say goodbye,
Remember me...
When winter snows are falling through a quiet sky
I'll remember you
When, in our darkest hour,
You held my hand and prayed I wouldn't go,
But a silent voice called out to me;
My time had come, and I had to travel Home...

Since then, I know your life has never been the same,
For I visit you each day:
So many times I've felt your pain:
I've watched you cry:
And I've heard you call my name...

But now, further along life's road I stand
In a timeless world, just beyond your sight,
Waiting for the day when I can take your hand and bring you across
to this land of Golden Light...

Till then, remember me, you understand-and try not to cry.
But if you do:
Let your tears fall
For the happiness and joy we knew,
And for the special love we shared,
For love can never die.

Stephen O'Brien"

"So go and run free with the angels
Dance around the golden clouds
For the lord has chosen you to be with him
And we should feel nothing but proud
Although he has taken you from us
And our pain a lifetime will last
Your memory will never escape us
But make us glad for the time we did have
Your face will always be hidden
Deep inside our hearts
Each precious moment you gave us
Shall never, ever depart
So go and run free with the angels
As they sing so tenderly
And please be sure to tell them
To take good care of you for me"

"One Sweet Day"

Sorry I never told you
All I wanted to say
And now it's too late to hold you
'Cause you've flown away
So far away

Never had I imagined
Living without your smile
Feeling and knowing you hear me
It keeps me alive
Alive

[Chorus:]
And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day

Darling I never showed you
Assumed you'd always be there
I took your presence for granted
But I always cared
And I miss the love we shared

[Chorus]

Although the sun will never shine the same again
I'll always look to a brighter day
Lord I know when I lay me down to sleep
You will always listen as I pray

[Chorus]

Sorry I never told you
All I wanted to say"

"As my eyes close at dawn,
Memories haunt my being;
Sighting those wondrous reminiscence,
Hearing those melodious laughter.

Tears stream down my eyes,
Those moments are gone;
But a smile shines on my face,
You've been a great part of me."

"Whence once I heard the faint whisper of the rushing wind
It formed a name in the air, whispering
The faint decibels that your soul voiced
Called out to me, unheard and unvoiced
Sweeping right back I searched for your figure
Forming shapes in the clouds
Awaiting your selfless shoulder
“Oh brother!” I cried out, “Where had you gone?”
You curved your lips and embraced me for long
My head felt light. My soul lingered
And I drifted to another world
To a scape bygone
As toddlers, I saw us playing on the hill tops
Amidst wintery clouds
I saw me run after you and fall on the ground
And suddenly you turned, with concern on your brows
Chasing back and picking me up
Brushing my tears and swinging me up
I saw us race to the school in the mornings
And I saw you hold my hand while returning
But then I felt my hands bereft
My head felt light. My soul revered
I saw me race alone to the school
And I saw me fall and chase the lonely cloud
I saw your face, and its obscure lines
My wet eyes rained bringing me back to this time
Sweeping right around I again searched for your figure
In vain I tried to form some shapes in the clouds
And then I heard the whispering wind rush in
Blanketing the clouds and taking them in
I heard no whispers, no names and no sound
“Oh brother!” I cried out, “Where have you gone?”"

"Dear Brother,
Forgive me for I don't want you to leave.
Forgive me for I don't open up to you.
Forgive me for you have to wipe away my salty tears.
Forgive me for you have to be strong for the both of us."

This tribute was added by Kristie Townsend on 23rd May 2017

"This sadness was our burden to carry,
Brother of mine,
Our burden to carry,
Throughout our lives.

Yet you have broken your shackles,
Brother of mine, have finally flown free,
And I am left questioning,
Hoping you will never forget me.

I cried back then, when turmoil unfolded,
And you comforted me with a soothing voice.
Now you have left this place,
And I don't blame you for that choice.

Please, all I am asking of you,
My dear brother,
Do not forget that little boy,
Who feared his mother.

I remain in the rubble of our past,
Please think of me even as you are free.
Back in those cloudy days,
You endeavored to help me see.

I am endlessly grateful.
Do not forget me, brother of mine,
For I might carry this burden,
For all of time."

"The truest of love is that that does not die
Pure love was found only in your honest eyes
Contentment was holding you close to heart
Burrowing in your scent
Joy was conquering mountains by your side

I want back every moment with you, life was never dull
There was definition, motivation and fulfillment
I still have the memories to hold onto, but can it ever be enough?
I had to let you go and my soul has collected another deep scar
You are severely missed, my handsome boy
I was not ready, I was not prepared
You deserved so much more than I was ever able to give you
And you gave me so much that I did not deserve

Your spirit will live forever in the hearts that you touched
Your love will rest in me until the end
You were my best friend and my little brother
I miss you more than words can say"

This tribute was added by Kristie Townsend on 23rd May 2017

"You always were the light of my life,
My helper when ever I faced strife.

Too soon gone, much to my sorrow,
Won't see you again until tomorrow.

When the stars in the sky twinkle above,
I just know it's you sending your love.

There's a whole in my life that can never be filled,
And a pain in my heart that can never be stilled."

"I miss you.
It's been a while now.
I wish you didn't have to leave.
I wish you lived.
I'm leaving, too.
But not to see you yet.
I'll just be in a place away from here.
Guide me.
Be my angel.
Never a day passed that I didn't miss you.
I miss you more today.
Everyday.
Always.
Let my love reach heaven.
I love you, Robin.
I love you, brother."

Everything's gonna be alright
Gotta toughen up my little buba, i told ya

It may feel a little painful, when the rain falls
But i promise the sun will always shine"

"If I could have one last conversation with you,
I would tell you how much I love you
I would show you how much you are missed
We'd laugh at terrible jokes
And we'd reminisce
If I could have one last conversation with you..."

"Requiem for a lost friend
I lost you, no we lost you
We have missed you, we will miss you.

We have lost your wiley, witty, sarcastic humor.
So creative, we lost your bass voice sound as deep and strong as Gabriel's trumpet.
Always time for us, even when there wasn't.

But why?
Why, why, why, why, WHY?!?
Why didn't you love yourself like we loved you?
You let it get bad, then worse, until it was too late.
You had left us...
I asked you for to see the doctor...
You put it off, not for a day. It was weeks...
I am hurt, you are missed so...
Missed so much...

I will go on, but the world is that much darker..."

"Little Brothers and Swings
I can still see him now, as I look out the window.
My little brother trying to swing by himself.
I can hear my him in my head saying,
“push me, push me I want to go higher!”

I would always laugh and would always mock.
I never talked or played with my brother.
We didn’t get to cherish the moments we had together.
Me and brother always argued, couldn’t get along for at least five seconds.

Now my brother is gone.
My brother never got a push.
I can hear my him in my head saying,
“push me, push me I want to go higher!”

And I’ve realised that swing was a better than me.
At least that swing supported my brother.
The swing lifted my brother,
just high enough for him to enjoy it.

Now I’m all alone,
just the swing and me."

"Perhaps, before I was born, I was told about you.
How you'd both come to be.

Perhaps, a deity sat me down and said - if you wish, you can bear their suffering.
And I must have said yes.

Perhaps you'll never know just how much I'd do for you, and how like my sadness, my love is endless"

"Secret Tears
Tears cascade through me in secret
I don't want you to see
how very much your pain and suffering
is taking a toll on me.

I hear your cries of agony as pain
wrecks havoc on all of you
and my heart, my whole body reacts
and it seems the pain hits me hard too.

I've begged, I've pleaded and asked the angels
to just reach down and touch your soul
hoping that their angelic touch from above
will help your pain, your misery to just let loose, just go

But even when you have moments so brief
whenever you're not in horrific pain
and we both try to rejoice and exalt in the relief,
the pain finds its way back again

So this leaves me in tears of agony of my own within
for watching you suffer and seeing your fear
is like watching you drown in a murky lake
when no one else is anywhere near--

But I cannot give up, I will NOT leave you
no matter how bad it gets, my dear bro
I'm right here next to you crying my secret tears
that I hope you can't see as your pain (and mine) continues to grow"

"Day by day I think of you,
How can all of this be true?
I can't believe you're really gone,
I still can't accept it,
Even after so long.
Just the thought of you makes me cry,
I never even got the chance to say goodbye.
Every picture, every letter,
I don't know if it will ever get better.
I always smell your familiar scent,
It makes me think of all of the times we've spent.
I know we didn't always get along,
And every time we talked, it would always go wrong.
So many things I never got to say,
I never imagined you'd ever be so far away.
You were my brother,
And I loved you like no other.
In my heart you'll always be,
You'll be my guide and help me see.
I'll never forget your soothing voice,
I would take your place if I had a choice.
But now I have to let you rest,
Although without you my world's a mess.
I miss you with all of my heart,
I wish we never had to part.
I know you're always by my side,
So now I guess this is my goodbye..."

"Hi Kristie.

I knew Robin from the meetings in Bournemouth he came into recovery not long after me and we were on a committee for around a year together. Both my partner and I were so shocked and saddened to hear that Robin had passed away, he was always the first one to approach the new man who walked through the door and his enthusiasm for recovery was contagious.as I'm sure you know,  He helped a lot of people and when he shared his experience he inspired others. Nothing was to much for him and when I moved back to Brighton I asked him to come down and do a share for me, he travelled both there and back by train ( which took nearly 3 hours each way). Robin was such a likeable person and will be missed by so many.

Thinking of you all ❤️

"Hi Kirstie, sorry to hear that and there but for the grace of God go I. He always had a huge heart and he certainly helped me at times. I know some of his struggles yet he always made time. I remember the run up to him getting his dogs and him building there kennel/hotel in the garden he was like a big child. He also used to moan at me a lot for driving up the road too fast getting into work but it was always from a caring perspective. Since my mum passed 2 years into my own recovery journey I came to believe that our days on this earth are the dream and when we go to sleep is when we all awake to live our lives, but that is just my thoughts and I take comfort in that. I hope you and the rest of the family are a little more at ease now, not that it will ever be easy I guess. But to be able to close your eyes and be with him will bring some comfort. Thank you for taking the time to message me. My thoughts and prayers with you, warm regards Leigh Pitt wood."

He did have a great smile and sense of humour - in fact I only have memories of him being pretty upbeat and very open. He was a pleasure to see. I'm not surprised he went on to help so many others. I was very sad to hear of his death, it was shocking to us down here. Thank you also for including us in your justgiving site. He wont be forgotten by anyone who knew him here.

What a shame to receive the news of such a great man with good qualities sadly passing away at the tender age of 40.

"Robin, one of the few genuine authentic souls I have had the privilege to meet and know, genuine hugs, genuinely wanted to know you are OK, always asking several times - but are OK aren't you?, he genuinely did not want others to suffer, he did a lot to help others and in a totally selfless way. Robin was a rare breed of human, a very special soul - an empath - everything he did and felt he did so deeply - especially in his love for his big sis - a special bond that can never be broken - Robin was a true warrior and one of the few humans I actually totally respected. Love you Robin - our hearts will never mend but the memory of you will always stay strong. Namaste Robin - ONE LOVE xxx ♥ xxx - Received From Jodie Ford via Email"

Inside your picture
pick you up and hold
you one more time.

But then in my deepest,
dreams I hold a million
pictures and I hold you
a million times more.

Each picture holds a
memory that memory we
will share, but heaven
came and took you and
on earth we cannot share.

But in my dreams I hold
your picture and beside me
you will stare and when
Heaven comes and takes me
our memories we will share."

You shine as my darkness falls,
every sunset is your call.
My angel star spreads it’s
Glistening light upon my painful path.

A gentle breeze parts swaying trees
To welcome in your healing light
And Glistening waters reflect your
Eternal heavenly glow upon my gaze

On cloudy nights you shine on bright
Even though your out of sight
On lonely nights I’ll stand and wait
For parting clouds to show you bright

Shine on my Angel in the sky
Throw your light and burn on bright
Every night I will surly wait
Until beside you I can shine a light"

"What is a brother?
Someone who is there
when you are hurting
He picks you up
and dusts you off again

What is a brother?
Someone who sees you are without a smile
And he gives you one of his
and gives you a hug too
just especially for you

What is a brother?
Someone who stands by your side
and holds your hand
when things don’t go well
He helps you understand

What is a brother?
A cherished friend for life
a brother by blood
A cousin or friend
But always by love"

"To tribute to your kindness
In words is not enough
To tell of your caring
For me and others is wasting time
To a dear brother of mine
To bridge a gap so wide
As to let me into your heart
When I don’t even know mine

This tribute to you
My brother
My friend
My family
In love you conquer hate
And within these ugly times
You conquer them with beauty
This tribute to my brother ends
But always will remain true
A Tribute To A Brother"

"Finally Home
Although your work on earth is done
Your life in heaven has just begun.
Your struggles here were hard and long
But they're over now, you're finally home.

Life wasn't easy, by choice or fate
A decision made, sometimes too late.
A fight to the finish, always strong
Rest easy Bro, you're finally home."

"Serenity Prayer
Reinhold Niebuhr (1892-1971)

God grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.

Living one day at a time;
enjoying one moment at a time;
accepting hardships as the pathway to peace;
taking, as He did, this sinful world
as it is, not as I would have it;
trusting that He will make all things right
if I surrender to His Will;
that I may be reasonably happy in this life
and supremely happy with Him
forever in the next.
Amen."

"Absolutely overwhelmed by the love shown for my brother Robin Lcfc Ali. I'd like to thank everyone that has messaged and expressed their condolences.  I'm sorry I can't reply to you all individually,  my heart is breaking and there are no words to express the pain that I feel. He is, regardless of our petty squabbles and bickering, my best friend, my champion, my biggest fan, my rock and my brother. So from the bottom of my heart, Thank You. Xxxx"

"When I am gone, release me let me go
I have so many things to see and do
You mustn’t tie yourself to me with tears
Be happy that we had so many years
I gave you my love, you can only guess
How much you gave to me in happiness

I thank you for the love you have shown
But now it’s time I travelled alone
So grieve a while for me if grieve you must
Then let your grief be comforted by trust
It’s only for a while that we must part
So bless the memories within your heart
I won’t be far away. For life goes on

So if you need me call and I will come
Though you can’t see or touch me I’ll be there
And if you listen with your heart you’ll hear
All of my love around you soft and clear
And then when you must come this way alone
I’ll greet you with a smile and welcome you home

"They Say There Is A Reason

They say there is a reason,
They say that time will heal,
But neither time nor reason,
Will change the way I feel,
For no-one knows the heartache,
That lies behind our smiles,
No-one knows how many times,
We have broken down and cried,
We want to tell you something,
So there won't be any doubt,
You're so wonderful to think of,
But so hard to be without."

"Broski... my children stepped up for me yesterday, they gave me strength, courage and dignity when I could not find my own. They represented me when I stumbled, carried me when I was weak and held me when I sobbed and broke my heart for you. I know that you taught all of your nieces and nephews those skills, as they all behaved as you would like them to. Each and everyone of them adore, worship, respect and love you. They always have and they always will. Nothing will ever change that. ⭐❤

"Feel no guilt in laughter, he’d know how much you care (20.10.16)

Feel no guilt in laughter, he’d know how much you care.
Feel no sorrow in a smile that he is not here to share.
You cannot grieve forever; he would not want you to.
He’d hope that you could carry on the way you always do.
So, talk about the good times and the way you showed you cared,
The days you spent together, all the happiness you shared.
Let memories surround you, a word someone may say
Will suddenly recapture a time, an hour, a day,
That brings him back as clearly as though he were still here,
And fills you with the feeling that he is always near.
For if you keep those moments, you will never be apart
And he will live forever locked safely within your heart."

"no end

it is not over, his end

an end with no end

how you live around

the emptiness, he

used to fill

the corner where

his ashes sit

the candle you light

when the family gathers

a flickering remembrance

you have to blow out

at the end of the day

the sentences you stop

where you might make

him disappear

and hesitate

his absence an intruder

presence

you cannot let go"

"I never got a chance to say goodbye
And now when I think of you all I do is cry
You left a message upon my heart
One with which I shall never part

The things you taught me the world will never know
And now thanks to you I can finally grow
You taught me strength, you taught me courage
You taught me love and gave me knowledge

You made me smile when the tears poured down
You helped me to turn my life around
We hurt each other it is true
But for the rest of my life I will always love you"

"Memories
My memories are what I have left,
and a lesson I will not forget.

The time has come when time is no more
and all that's left was once before.

The memories so dear and true,
those memories of me and you.

Although we fell and stumbled at times,
all those hills were necessary climbs.

All the times when your heart shined through,
Are the greatest memories I have of you.

I will always remember you, brother of mine
in my heart I will keep you, so I will be fine.

I will go forward with my head up high,
it might be hard, I cannot lie.

But in my heart you will be,
moving forward, you with me."
