Someone Left Behind (poem)

They searched but they just couldn’t find

That someone who they left behind

Who helped them when they were so blind

He truly was one of a kind

-

He taught them a new way to be

A pathway to new clarity

A dream from their past memory

That now has this chance to be free

-

Such wonders again they did find

This world of a child’s clarity

Where kisses were not memory

And every word was purely kind

-

Rejoicing in how can this be

Their troubles were so far behind

They wondered why they were so blind

So blind but alas never free

-

They saw he was not of their kind

So towards him they all became blind

Till once again they fell behind

They searched but they just couldn’t find

Wow - such an amazing and full-circle trip in such a short work. Very thought provoking and relatable - we've all probably been there but never seen it coming or going
