Abandoned

This is not the one I have been working on, this is one that jumped out at me for some reason today.

Rejected
The pleas before the grim reaper

Given-up
The power from the life-support machine

Abandoned
Looking down at the coffin

Left
Looking around at everyone else crying

Forsaken
The rain turning everything to mud

Cast-aside
The family of the deceased looking in anguish

Jilted
The widow with the family she had just joined

Dropped
The casket being lowered into the rain-sodden ground

Alone
Not able to talk to anyone about the loss

Realisation
What’s that bright light?
