Someone Left Behind (poem)

Updated on November 17, 2015

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
