I remember shadows

So many years have climbed over me
since you've gone away
a lifetime in a day
and the years were ones of blossoming for me.

How sad to know
I could not bloom for you.
To know how late I was in finding you.
You were afraid of love already by then.

Now, when I think of you,
I remember shadows
and how kind we thought the world
not to light our secret place.
Sad, too,
to find that feeling gone.
Just when I'm strong enough to keep it.
