Shadows and Light
5 Jul 2003
There are those in our lives
That slowly fade away, like stars vanish
With dawn's first grey light.
Brilliant and vibrant for a short time,
They disappear forever, never
Seen again in our night's black sky.
Still others leave their mark,
Their light too bright and powerful
To ever truly go away.
They haunt our lives, our dreams.
They fill our souls with being,
Impressing our hearts ever more.
You are my moon. Always there, never changing.
Shadows and light dance across your face,
Hiding this side or that, but if I look
I can see you there behind them.
Breaking through dark black clouds
Or shadows cast by an overbearing sun.
So goodnight my green eyed angel.
I'll meet you in my dreams tonight.
Until I hold you in my arms again,
I will look at the sky with wonder.
Watch the moon play shadow games
And feel your light upon my heart.
For my Ex.
