Shadow IV

I’ve long abandoned my hopes and dreams
Of having you here, with me, because,
I know it isn’t true. There is no path for me.
I am just a shadow.

Waiting for something, anything, to give me life again,
When a boy and girl appear in front of me.
She’s injured, and the boy lies her here, but what can I do?
I am just a shadow.

I sit here, serenely, under my tree,
Nearly entirely invisible in the night, still cast by the moon.
I do all I can to heal this girl, to let her sleep and dream well, but
I am just a shadow.

Dawn breaks, she wakes, and the boy holds her steady.
They leave, not knowing of me, to continue their journey…
I understand now, even without you, I have purpose.
I am a shadow.

And to an open future, I give my trust…
