Shadow me

like the stillness
after a stormy night, I
felt within, a timely
quiet.

like a realization, in the
birth of light, I saw you;
I saw me in
you.

like a truth, they speak of you;
of me and you, the void
between. And I, alone, hear;
again.

like the permanence of
my soul, the stronger I resist;
I believe, you are meant to
be.

like me, I see you, lost
in sight; when in the darkness
I feel your presence
still.

I wonder if I
reside in other people's
souls, or only mine

I loved reading your poem,
reflecting about its meaning,
to you, to me.

"I saw me in you" - "feel your presence still"
very powerful emotions.

"like a realization, in the

I saw me in
you." Wow!
Expression so intense and clear from start to end....
Beautiful, Aparna.
