You Were So Sad When You Left

So where are you now?

Why hasten to leave,

Just because,

We cease to believe?

.

Why did you hurry,

To the grave?

Some say cowardice.

Some say brave.

.

Time heals all,

We’ve all been told.

But eternity takes an eternity,

For eternity to unfold.

.

Make or break,

As fast as you can.

Throw caution to the wind,

Time waits for no man.

.

Gather, amass,

Watch years pass.

Like falling sand,

Through an hourglass.

.

With the proverbial,

Banana peel,

You stumble and break,

And cannot heal.

.

Did you go blind,

Or was your veil lifted?

Is it saddest to be alone,

As your sand is sifted?

.

Mourning and weeping,

We are agonizingly bereft,

Because you were so sad,

When you left.

.

.

.........................You left.

.

.

And what becomes of us because you left?

.

Oh Micky. So sad when people can no longer cope. Most of us have had the feeling to different extents, but to decide to leave this world is a HUGE step.

My dad always told me to think of those left behind. At the funeral of a dear friend last friday , it hurt so much to see the family who will feel lost without him.

Perhaps, they are no longer sad, wherever they are now.

Micky Dee,

To handle such a sad event with such grace speaks highly of the tenderness that is you.

Best Always,

Kim
