I have a starting line and a poem that might help.
So sorry for your loss.
Nate was a great friend; he was the kind of friend that stands by you when you need somebody to be there.
No one knew the torment,
that you were going through;
We only kept on seeing
What we really wanted to.
We saw the outward smile,
but not your inner pain;
We never really dreamt,
That you would never smile again.
Forgive us if we failed to see,
What we could do to aid;
Or if we failed to comprehend,
How much you were afraid.
We pray your mental anguish,
Will now forever cease;
And that your deep anxieties,
Will be replaced by peace.
We know your pain invaded,
Every single thought you had;
It made you cry internally,
And deeply, deeply sad.
But we in turn remember,
The good times, not the bad;
We remember when you smiled at us,
And not when you were sad.
So when we think about your life,
We won't dwell upon its close;
We'll remember all the good times,
And forget about life's blows.
We'll remember all the happiness,
The joy and not the tears;
The assurance and the confidence,
And not irrational fears.
Our lives have all been better,
Because you have been there;
So now we leave your memory,
In God's all-loving care.

How about something like, I've entered a new phase in my life... My best friend Nate hung himself recently.
This would leave your friend's death as a wide open topic and gives whoever you are talking to a means of expressing whatever they will feel in response to you.

Just keep thinking on it man. I know it would be easier to have a start, but it will make you a lot happier if you come up with the entire piece yourself. That way you know that the entire piece you're dedicating to him came from your heart and not someone else's idea. I hope that makes sense.

Nate was my best friend, so why did he have to go
He always picked others up, when they were feelin low
Hope this helps! Good luck!!Source(s): myself

Yeah, definitely wait on it and come up with it yourself. It'll mean a lot more.
It's kind of scary how much your picture looks like my friend who committed suicide in December. But I know the pain. Stay strong.
