By Charles Robert Lindholm

You see me in the shadows

but never run away

You look toward me

searching for my eyes

but it’s me who looks away

You know I’m here

I know You do

I can feel it

in my soul


I see You from my shadows

my favorite hiding place

near enough to you

so my figure you can trace

with Your eyes

but still so far from You

as I try not to intrude

You live in the light

while I live in the shadows

of the night, just watching

and waiting and wishing

from afar on every shooting star


a prisoner of my time and space

locked up in my place

in the shadows

in the darkness

barred from every touching you

I dream my dreams

of us
