Shadow - Poem by Anita Sehgal

I was forever your shadow,

The laughter on my face has since died,

The spring in my step is lost,

My tears have also dried.

I no longer like to hear the songs we sang together.

My moods always reflected yours.

I remember and …
a sweet melancholy pierces my heart.

I have no memory of the earlier years
as if I was born only when I met you.

Our lives were so intricately woven.

How then could you leave?

Why then do I survive
when you are no more?

Everything was about you.

I wonder now when we were together if you ever thought
of my identity as separate or was I only a mere reflection of you?

On which altar do I now pour my joys, sorrows, loves and longings.

For I never had anyone other than you not even myself.
