Our shadows were so restless As we passed from room to room They pretended to be living But each within their tomb Shrinking a little bit each day As the sun shown bright above With them a piece of our love slipped away Out on our quest for love The days of our younger shadows Dancing in each days light Love,and laughter floating on the breeze Until day turned into night Slowly burdened by lifes troubles Our shadows could dance no more Only to become darkend spots Fading away on the floor Now death's time,and space have taken you Leaving me only memories of your face The shadow that was once part of you Is now gone without a trace

    Impressive verse here, Dan! You've certainly got a way with words - and your rhyme scheme gave it a perfect touch of mystery and beauty. Gotta say this is a favorite. :) Always, Laura

    That's so wonderful! I really like it. It reminds me of Joshua. His shadow no longer here. Not in a sad way..because I know he is somewhere better.
