 In The Shadow
In the shadow, we lie awake—
It's when we blossom and plan our dreams,
or fall into sadness or deep madness,
as the ebbs and flows open gates,
and reveal a life we long await.
In the shadow, we find a place
that reveals a heart that beats and leans—
to seek a hand that never leaves
no matter the calling of humble needs.
In the shadow, we learn to love—
the life given to each of us.
