Did you not see me as I walked as your shadow

Going to those places you had already been

I followed in each and every footstep feeling

Knowing that we were both kin

Did you not feel me as I covered you

At times I knew everything that you would do

For I was your skin and at times reached there

And waited for you thinking where had you been

Did you not feel me as I flowed through your veins

Pumping flowing making us one and the same

I took a breath and you exhaled

We were one like a boat and it’s sail

Never going nowhere without the other

And yet both moving this way that way

To discover all that the seas had to share

Did you not miss me when I left you

Did you not feel me leave with that last

Breath of air as life said its goodbyes

Did you not hear the sound of my cries

Carried upon the winds

And shared in those tears that your eyes

Did bring to your cheeks as they were kissed

For the very that last time as life passed us by

How can you not know me how can you

Not remember for even in death we are one

And the same xx
