0170 The Shadow [27 January 1998]

I’ve loved you
For so long,
That no other of which I know,
Can even hold a candle
To the bright light
That shines within you.

I follow you
A shadow am I like,
Never interfering,
Never asking if you
Like me as well.

I know all about you,
Your reasons, dreams,
The way you look
When you change emotions.

I fear it will be long
Before my heart
Will ever learn to speak,
Like a shadow,
Forever shall I remain in silence.
