You of the Shadows


I saw you in those shadows, 

but you never walked on in.

You were always watching, 

considered mostly everything.

Today you came to centre, 

that mirror opened wide.

I walked in to join you there, 

in the place that you reside.

I see you now much clearer, 

in the etchings on my face.

Turning from the mirror now,

but I know you leave a trace.

Suppose it’s time to join up, 

we’re heading the same way.

It’s time for me to face you, 

as all those things I never say.
