Left Behind

The cold grey street echoes
with faces that slowly change
as they pass me by and
pay no notice in my eyes.

Earth and sky and memories
are all you left behind.

I search them for something
that I recognise, familiar,
a spark of kinship, or a fire
still burning from the night.

But I am left empty.
They pass me by and I know
that I do no know them.
There is a chasm between us.

Earth and sky and memories
are all you left behind.
