Shadows of the Past

I see them passing by me,
Shadows of my past -
Relationships I thought would hold,
But they could not last.
They smile, cold and cordial,
These fragile wraiths of time,
Then pass out of sight,
Out of memory and mind.

What, these machinations?
Plans made long ago -
Never held the framework
I thought I was to know.
Why did I love these shadows -
No longer in my life -
Or think they were fore'er?
No more than a dream,
A wisp of smoke, blade of grass.

I laugh now, when I recall
Those fleeting thoughts I loved -
Held nothing in my heart...
So cold, so lost, so dead...
They return to meaningless existence,
While I seek my Life,
My Lord, my Love.
