   A Whole World Left Behind

His sudden departure bewildered us
with a world just left behind.
His relatives crying with pain in their hearts
leaving his wonderful family behind.
The streets crowded with the business of people
leaving the pleasures and excitement of life behind.
The blueness of the neverending sky
leaving the soaring, monstrous birds behind.
The mountains from ocean to forest
leaving the beauty behind.
He shocked everyone and without a trace
left me and a whole world behind.
