Shadow Man
By Lynn White

Hello there, shadow man.
You have been
behind me
all my life.
But now
I can turn and face you,
as I turn my life round.
See your features,
see what’s there,
know who you are,
then put you behind me,
as I move on.

Or, perhaps you’ll step forward
out of the shadow
to greet me,
and I’ll see your smile,
and greet you
and then,
and then
we’ll walk
side by side
into my
new life,
as I move on.
