A Sudden Death

I visited his grave and thought to find him there
For death had swiftly come and I must go to say goodbye:
But as I stood and cast my eye upon the earth so lately moved
Where I had seen him lain that very morn, I found him not

For though finality insists that death's completeness came that day
And ne'er again my heart need wonder where he dwells
Still I turned away unsatisfied and searching
And elsewhere found him where he laughed and lived
