Left behind


She left 

Without looking back

No second glances 

Without remembering those who would miss her

Without sympathy for those she would hurt

She forgave those who hurt her

But those she loved never understood 

Her selflessness until it was too late

She fought but gave up too soon

Leaving regret in those who loved her 

Guilt lurking in the air around them

She gave them life

Loved them 

Taught them

Cared for them

And was always there for them

But she did not tell them

How to live without her
