Lonely Shadow

A white shadow stands,

Lonely in its guise.

Held by unseen bands,

Its life frozen in ice.


Neglected this shadow is,

In this dark and desolate world,

On and on it lives,

Until its dream’s fulfilled.


By change a child wanders

Into this land so vile.

The shadow does wonders,

Igniting an eternal smile.


Winter comes and winter goes,

Shadow rises, shadow falls.

The river of its life now flows

On and on to a thousand shores.


The earth is once more deserted

Without its solitary shadow.

But in dreams it is created,

By many a forlonging fellow.


The snowman again lives

For all who believed in its goals.

An endearing smile it gives

To all the lonely souls.

The End
