Shadow with arms outstretching

I see you in dreams sometimes,

Were you real or farfetching?

For now in sleep you reside.

Were you just my invention?

Would I do this to myself?

Despite the best intention,

I know I’ll love no one-else.

Then I’ll just dream forever,

Pray you’ll be at my elbow,

Your lover and possessor,

Sadly you’re just a shadow.
