The Shadow of Love

FigghiuI am the shadow that passes through your mind
as you remember times long gone past
the wind in your hair as you stroll
a soft touch as a leave brushes your cheek

A certain scent I always wear
tells you I am near to you
yet when you turn around
you find you are alone

You can sense me watching over you
but when you reach out all you catch
is a shadow that slips away
leaving just memories behind

You can hear my voice in the breeze
carried down from the mountain top
feel me when you bath in crystal streams
and in the beams radiating from the sun

I am everywhere yet also I am nowhere
just the shadow that protects you
I am the spirit that dwells within you
the shadow of our love for each other

One thought on “The Shadow of Love

  1. Beautiful — too bad the poet is anonymous I would like to read more. As I re read this poem which at first I thought was a grief comfort poem, I wonder if the author is not also referring to our love of God?
