I stand in your shadow

So you have gone from me,
and yet...
I feel that forevermore
I stand in your shadow.
No...never alone
on the steps of my door
of my individual life.
I don't command my own heart,
nor bask in the sunshine
peaceful as before,
never to forget...
the sense of you once more.
Your touch against my face,
so gentle...
No matter what resort
you took to part us,
your heart was left in mine
so now it does beat double
and you are part of my every night, every day
my fruit of the vine...
couldn't taste sweeter.
And when I kneel to pray
as I often do
to God for myself,
I also mention you
and he can see within my soul
my shadow casts... of two.
