Maybe Tonight They Will Return

As I sit watching shadows on the wall
Each shadow brings memories to mind
Of moments I thought I had forgotten
Some happy, other's were the sad kind.

Each time I close and open my eyes
A different shaped shadow appears
Some of the shadows makes me happy
Other shadows fill my eyes with tears.

Maybe the shadows have a purpose
In appearing one day I will understand
Hopefully, they contain wisdom for me
I will gain if the shadows appear again.

Maybe tonight they will return...
