Colors In A Hospital Room

Was it so very long ago
That I was painted
In shades of gray...
And never saw one stroke of red,
Or felt the warmth of yellow?

Was it then....or yesterday
That my life 
Was in Sundown
With no Horizon's edge before me
And no rising tomorrows
Could echo out
The hollow sounds..?

It seems that I could
Almost touch
Or walk beside
The Shadow that I was before;
And it frightens me
To somehow know
Standing alone
Behind a closed door,

I am not
So far away...
