A Sudden Departure

A green plaid shirt

hung limp on the door.

Trousers lie crumpled

alone on the floor.

Bed is undressed

and the curtains are pulled.

Not too long ago

this house was full.

A sudden departure

that nobody saw

has left everybody’s

feelings raw.

Full of life

and mischief yesterday.

A sense of

emptiness and loss today.
