Shadows (writing prompt #8)


They lived, they loved, they laughed
Life was then so sweet
They danced in the sunlight
Joy propelled their dancing feet.

Years flew by so quickly
They struggled to be together for a long while
Then, finally, all that was left for her to see
Was the lingering shadow of his smile.

Deep, dark sorrow captured them
He became so old and grey
Their togetherness was ended
And she had to turn and walk away.

In her dreams he lives again
She closes her eyes and after a while
There it is again and again
The lingering shadow of his smile.
