He casts a long shadow

He casts a long shadow

His life unremarkable

Birth, life, all the things in between

The suddeness in which

Piece by piece

It was all taken away

Ripples in the lives

All those who knew him

All those who knew of him

To live as those

Each day was guaranteed

Only for it all to be taken away

Permanently without a warning

In the old light of darkness

Far from home

A man, unremarkable until death
