Shadow Fall - Poem by Keith Johnson

[For Jackie Trent (6 September 1940 – 21 March 2015) ]


Fifty years of shadows now have fallen
But the minding is recalled unbroken
Soft rain gently beating
Walking with only kisses spoken

It is winter now but wonder has not faded
Our lifetime love stays undefeated
Though clouds grow dark above
The light remains that love created

I no longer wonder what went wrong
Though lost and distant we still belong
And in my mind you come to me

To see how I’ve been faring every day
And watch the years pass on their way
So as my caring sets things to right
It gives life to you again in love and light.

There you are now my love
There you are now my love
