Of Loss

You walked 
walked out the door
out of our lives
of life
of this earth
this existence
no longer existing
walked to the other side.

Leaving the questions
the questioners
questioning themselves
your reason
their own reasons
blame searching
for a mind to live in.

You left
left no evidence
nothing evident
nothing left
your pain is dead
we live your final hour 
living in our thoughts.

You rest
rest in the peace
left pieces
pieces of life
not found in questions
nor in answers
no pieces left to find
may you find peace.
