Beloved Shadow

Oh Beloved shadow
My greatest teacher
My most loyal friend,
Never have you left my side
Never have you forsaken me.

How many times have I scorned you
And attempted to hide from your all pervasive presence?

You wanted to hold my hand. I ran away.
You whispered. I failed to listen.

I would not embrace you.
I would not learn your lessons.
I would not face my shame.

Then came the ultimate test.
I was dying. Only you could save me.
I reached out for your hand,
You were there.
You held me.
I wept.
A fountain of love appeared in my heart.
I was cleansed.
I saw you as love.

I revel in your beauty.
I bathe in your spirit.
I rejoice in our oneness.
I bless our union.
