A shadow

A shadow
Not the light it once was  
Not the silvery shine of a dream
Not the golden gleam of hope
A dark silhouette 
A shadow

She did not pursue it anymore
But it followed her from afar
It reminded her 
Occasionally 
Of things that almost were 
Yet never become 

A shadow 
The darkness projected 
By the light that it was 

Now, 
A shadow, 
Following 
Sad
Silent
Slow

A memory 
A reminder 
Of all it could have been
And all it never was 
All it never  is
