SHADOW PLAY

picture 020

I WALK WITH YOUR SHADOW BESIDE ME,

AND YOUR SOUL TUCKED SAFE IN MY HEART,

YET STILL I TALK TO YOU OUT LOUD,

NOT FOR YOUR BENEFIT BUT MINE,

SO THAT I MIGHT HEAR THE WORDS,

THAT YOU HAVE ALREADY HEARD.

 

I WALK WITH YOUR SHADOW BESIDE ME,

STILL LONGING FOR YOUR VOICE TO CALL,

BUT I KNOW YOUR WORDS INSTINCTIVELY,

AND THE EFFORT TO SOUND IN MY HEAD,

WOULD SOMEHOW DEPLETE YOUR PRESENCE…

EVERY DAY I WAIT FOR YOUR CALL,

RIDICULOUSLY LOOK AT THE PHONE…

BUT YOUR SHADOW WILL ALWAYS WALK BESIDE ME.

DALE ‘M’
