Shadows of the Past

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .

Shadows of the past,

are ever following me,

I can hear the soft whispers -

of things that used to be.


Shadows of the past,

never fail to delight me,

they remind me of gladder times,

when together were we.


Shadows of the past,

on silent feet of the night,

when the stars come shining up above,

I know your smiling upon me.


Shadows of the past,

always welcome to me,

I can almost see,

the days that have once been.


Shadows of the past,

following me through the years,

making me remember and smile -

drying all the tears.


Shadows of the past,

I wonder if you think of me,

as much as I think of you,

as much as my heart aches.


Shadows of the past,

will be with me always,

reminding me of the faces and places -

the times that stay in my memory.


Shadows of the past,

always shine upon me,

they comfort my soul,

knowing someday we’ll meet again.


Shadows of the past,

photographs never forgotten

they seem to come alive again,

as I gaze upon them.


Shadows of the past,

in the dark of night,

as the moon shines bright -

come out to dance with me.
