Left Behind

Memories brought up

Even though tear will flow

More and more you find things forgot

Only to realize how important they’re not

Reality bent to suit those left behind

Innocent though it may be

And others, far more severe, dwelt on here

Listening and remembering what you have lost

 

Funerals, for me at least, aren’t for the deceased. They are for the people left behind.
