Shadow Heart - Poem by Donald R Wolff JR

Shadow Heart, so dark and silent
Thy way cannot be seen
Always waiting within the shadows
Waiting there for me

Thy light went out when dreams were lost
In life, time has taken them away
All things that gave you so much beauty
Slowly had to fade

Thy color became a hollow shadow
Thy heart is what I prayed
Somehow lost when life was easy
Time, is what I blame

Sleeping will not bring me rest
My dreams are, of another day
Aging till my time is over
Fearing what awaits

Shadow Heart, so cold and dreary
This life for you I gave
Bound beyond the final chapter
Eternal to thy, hate

Thereafter my dreams shall be forever
My hell will be thy heart
I'll search for you in ever-after
My love, life kept apart

Perhaps such peace shall not be known
Maybe life is not a dream
Always waiting in the darkness
Is the shadow of my grief
