The Shadow of You Meeting The Shadow of Me

Photo by Shirley Jimenez

I found an old picture today…

It’s the shadow of you meeting the shadow of me.

A remembrance of the little people we once were

who will always be in the past…behind us.

But a reminder that sometimes,

(I call them the best times)

when the sun shines just right

or the stars shine a little too bright,

and our shadows stand in front of us

leading the way.
