I AM A SHADOW

by Michael Dale Sipes, Jr.

 

I am a shadow that will forever be next to you

my love for you will endure and always be true.

Before you entered my life I was a lost soul

you completed me and made me whole.

We spent many years together as one

now you have moved on to someone.

I understand but it's just too hard to take

every night I imagine you with me while awake.

Your clothes still hand in the closet

I take out a shirt, a shell in your pocket.

Walking on the beach together I was whole

now those memories are a cancer of my soul.

I wish you could read my thoughts love

then you would understand all the above.

Now I am a shadow of my former self

alone in a world all by myself.

What did I do to drive you so far away

I sit alone and think day after day.

Glimpses of hope come now and then

but then I remember I am only a shadow again.

I never thought it would end this way

me a lost soul again day after day.

I am a shadow that will forever be next to you

my love for you will endure and always be true.
