    Shadows of the past

    The ones that never last

    Gone too fast are his, near my own

    Where they used to play


    Shadows that now sleep

    Where they used to weep

    In my mind, at times, they creep

    Before they mellow and lay


    Shadows of the dawn

    Reflect memories now gone

    Though no new feelings have spawned, this time

    It all feels okay


    Shadows I sometimes miss

    To where I reminisce,

    Our last kiss, such bliss

    Gently faded to gray


    The dark which only we know

    The shades, both highs and lows

    The silhouette contrasting the glow

    Our shared shadow, never meant to stay...

    Do you write short stories also? If you don't you should, you have such a definitive voice, it makes for reading your words so... personal and relatable... thank you poet :)
