My Shadow Love
Strong and steady walks my love, beside me every day.
Unlike my shadow is my love, night won't drive him away.
Yet like my shadow is my love as together through the years
We shared the roads we traveled paved with joy or slick with tears.
I'll never be without my love, I'll never walk alone.
Tho' miles and months between us lie, and words I do bemoan.
My thoughts are always with him, they daily span the miles.
Happy memories linger with me, they often bring me smiles.
A legacy my love has left me, I smile, I laugh, I sing
A love of life and mankind, tolerance of everything.
This gift my love has given, more than any other treasure
Life was meant for living by the Golden Rule to measure.
Love must not be selfish and be kept within your heart.
Once you share it with another then you'll never be apart.
