WHAT HE LEFT BEHIND...........




  
On a lonely highway---
Just the glimpse of dusk---
With the foliage just swaying---
And little squirrels on their way…!!!!

A mere pack of matches---
An even meagre pack of cigar---
Showed the way for a shadow…!!!
The shadow of the one---
The shadow of the lost----
The shadow of the wrecked….!!!!
Barefooted and rusty haired----
The old coat and stick to share---
Slowly walking past the post……..

The amazing grace----
The unbound “glory”---
The glory of freedom---
The glory of having none….!!!!

But what made him freeze..???
What stopped his tireless legs…???
Oh….!!!
But how…???
His eyes showed the glitter…..
But only momentary….!!!
Then was lost……..
Hesitation crept as he stooped….
Click------
It was open…!!!!!
The fresh smell came in…….

“Jesus”---
Was the only murmur
The momentary awe transformed…..
Slowly the nerves settled….!!!!
The grasp grew stronger------
……………………………….
No one knew what happened next…..
Just those fading footsteps….!!!!
And there lay behind the “case”--
The “case” of “gold”…………
 That he left behind……!!!!!!!!!!!!
