Clandestine Companion

You do not go before me
Or lag, attached behind
But you remain within me
A shadow on my mind

Someday perhaps love’s sunshine
Will melt away your shroud
You clandestine companion
You temperamental cloud

Vainly, I build defenses
Alas, your subtlety
Is woven through my senses
Deep to the heart of me

The shadow of a moment
Has power to remain
Its memory a constant
Reminder of love’s pain
