Shadows in the Wind

Shadows in the Wind

Tony DeLorger © 2011

Like reflections lost in memories,

our fallen ones wander the shadows.

Now of dust, their souls,

alive in our waking moments,


Like spectres at the edge of our mind’s eye,

they reach out in desperation,

to reassure us that they live on beyond this mortal realm.

But they are just shadows,

lost from our pain,

and in the light of truth.

The shadow is now all that is for us,

left behind, in loss,

our grieving far from gone.

Love now stands alone,

the one thing that binds us all,

here and beyond.

So I let you leave me now,

to be as you will be,

in my love and memory.

And I pray for peace,

this mortal soul to rest,

sure in the knowledge that we will meet again.

Wasn't sure I could do this one with out crying, but look at me. Time does heal, but "the grieving far from gone".
