Shadow

I turned around today and saw your shadow.

It moved just like you used to when it walked;

Held out a hand that fit just like yours did

Into the memory of my own.

Walked beside me silently, the way we used to do-

The breeze filling in all the words that passed unspoken.

But your shadow didn't smile- I don't smile anymore.

Your shadow's eyes can't stare into my own.

Your shadow's voice can never bring the laughter

That our two souls once shared

Your shadow is empty, like my heart.
