Shadows of the past

Shadows of the past make me realise
The good things in life in the present.
A smiling little healthy version of me.
Lots of love from “Yours truly”
The blessing of parents.
The able to choose lifestyles
And last but never least a job to complain about !

We can get caught up with todays troubles
The struggles at work
The aches of a tired body
The broken promises of near and dear
Or simply the shortage of time
But shadows of the past is a gentle reminder
If I could do it then, I can do it again
If need be
And this time, I know I will survive.

And shadows of the past is a little nudge
To thank the Unknown who helped
Sometimes in the form of a person,
Sometimes in the form of time –
And sometimes in the form of self belief.
