The Shadow

In life there are things we cannot lose
and parts of us once gone
will never return.
Like a shadow.

After the noon sun shines
it flees beneath us.
Once again outside our grasp
'til by some miracle of God
the noon day sun shines again
and we no longer
stare into the face of the future.

For our shadow returns
screaming who we are
and which way we should go.
