Dear Shadow




Dear Shadow, how you change before my eyes...

As a babe, I stare at you with wonder at something new,

As an adult, I jump away from you--startled--as I think you will do harm,

As an old person, I smile--comforted by your familiar presence in my life,

As I die, you are my shroud as I move beyond into the coming unknown--seeking something new to stare at.

Dear Shadow, thank you for the company.
