Shadows In My Mind

Darkness brings the shadows
Of places I have been
Memories loom in corners
Rattling in the wind
Sometimes whispers haunt me
Never letting go
Race across the star shine
Answers left unknown
Reaching blindly through the night
Someone to hold close
Only to find vapors
Drifting down like tears
Shadows never listen
'Till the morning light
Then I'll follow sunrise
Far into my mind

Then I'll follow sunrise

                          Far into my mind

    When i was younger, in church I use to hear the elderly give testimony theking the lord for having a sound mind. As i grew, i learned about these shadows and can give the same testimony of thanks. Good one!

    Such sadness James, these always reach deep inside to be savored; I think the emotion speaks to many of us on some level. So special! :)
