penance, I must walk among the shadows...
tired, so very lonely...
trudge along - weary, with little hope
why...thinking, "if only ..."
gentle shadows follow me
sway as breezes push them to and fro..
run ahead, they slip behind
with me as I go.
shadows, be my companion
with me, comfort me and then
the sun sets low behind the hillside,
until you can be seen again.
the morning, rise the sun
shadows again appear...
me through a time of sorrow
reminders of the loneliness, the fear.
can't ignore my friends, the shadows
creep softly, near me now
caring - creatures of God's making
to me by nature's vow!
my lifetime, I've known these shadows,
with me when things aren't right.
shadows of my memories -- quiet comfort
sunshine, at twilight and in the dark of night.
I must walk alone and friendless
pray it be in twilight's glow.
gladly walk among my shadows...
shadows...As the breezes blow.
