Shandows in the Wind 2

Shadows in the Wind 2

By 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.

For now I will seek to live,

not lost in memory, but beside it.

I will not forsake you but move on because of you,

because you would want me to be free.

I still long for your touch,

but must let it fade into past,

let its warmth imbue my life and look ahead.

For love has no boundaries, no walls,

just the expansion of expression.

For now farewell,

you will always remain in my heart.
