Army Mom’s Safe Haven

Sharing Lunch, by John Weiss
Painting: “Sharing Lunch” by John Weiss


All my life, the shadows dark
have followed where I roam ~
they haunt me in the garden,
and track me to my home.

My shadows’ names are
Doubt, and Fear
Who am I now?
Why am I here?

We each have a shadow
to call our very own ~
The shadow that pursues us,
when we’re most alone.

Shadows have so many names ~
Sorrow and Despair,
Loneliness and sad Regret
Sit in the empty chair.

I’ve learned a secret recently;
I’d like to share with you.

There’s no substance to the shadows
that follow me and you.
