My thick white sheets empower me as I glance over to my windowsill

Hoping to find someone out there walking towards it, yet all is quite still

I let my sheets take over once again and now I truly feel their warmth come over me

For is that a your shadow on my wall I see?

I think surely this could not be happening, my dream could not be coming true

But as quickly as the shadow came it disappeared too

A tear falls slowly from my eye and glides down my soft cheek,

I imagine you being there, touching me and that is when my body becomes weak

It is then that I pondered how you could ever be,

Just a simple shadow, a mere mirage to me
