A Shadow

A Shadow 

Frightened by a shadow report
on a fall morning.
Scared to you-know-what
am I.

Make it not so. 
Weren’t we just young
discovering each other
careless to a future

of what every life brings?
Sacrifices were yet to be made
and the knowledge of
endings too far away.  

I am not prepared to 
live in a world without you
nor can I conclude anything
today except

there will come a day
when life goes on without us.
