My Shadow

You are closer to me

Than anyone can be,

We celebrate,

We commiserate,

Are both fragile and strong,

Are as young as we feel…

Share joy and sorrow

And my faith in tomorrow.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx
