There is my shadow,
                                                       A dark outline of this body
                                                       And yet, it also holds,
                                                       The hidden imperfections
                                                      Of my existence.
                                                     The unwritten stories
                                                     And poems, the undone
                                                    Degrees and certificates
                                                    Of greater knowledge, the
                                                    Role of enlightened healer.
                                                    All these forgotten but
                                                    Important ambitions,
                                                   Living and hiding in
                                                   This shadow.


A tribute to all we had hoped to do but lost track of.
