The Shadow Knows

The Shadow Knows

Sit under the forbidden tree,
And never mind the tempter.
Gently close your eyes,
And step into the world of shadows.

Sit with them in peace,
And listen with your heart.
They will talk about being ignored,
about being pushed aside,
about being forgotten.

They will say,
‘We bring you mercy and lovingkindness
From the Good Shepherd.
This is why we follow you around.’

Sit and listen with your heart.
They have much to say to you
about your fear of shadows.
Because you have much to learn
about love.
