SILENTLY THE SHADOWS WATCH
By Patrick N. Kramer
Written 6-21-06

Silently they watch me, as I pass them by.
Silently they watch me, upon those days I cry.
Silently they watch it all.
Silently they watch, waiting for a tear to fall.

They are the shadows of my past you see.
They are the shadows of many a memory for me.
They are the shadows of days gone by.
They are the shadows of sad memories of which I cry.

Silently they watch, waiting for the tears to run.
Silently they watch, throughout days where tears are none.
Silently they watch, and wait, at the corners of the door.
Silently they watch, and wait, for me to pass them once more.

They are the shadows of days gone by.
They are the shadows reminding me of why.
They are the shadows that speak of one’s last breath.
They are the shadows of a past love and death.

Silently they whisper, and they to me they do speak.
Silently they whisper, and a tear they do seek.
Silently they whisper of deaths from long ago.
Silently they whisper of things others do not know.

They are the shadows of those who have gone on before.
They are the shadows and memories of those I see no more.
They are the shadows of the past.
They are the shadows of memories that will forever last.

Silently, those shadows will always remain, there upon the wall.
Silently, I remember the shadows of those who heard God’s call.
Silently I will remember the shadows of those who went to be with God.
Silently I will remember the shadows and remember they’re with God.
