Shadow of two persons.

My mother’s shadow is longer than mine
It splays across the ground like a giant
We are together, our fingers entwined,
side by side we stand, sharing the sun.

They splay across the ground like giants
The shadows we make , silhouettes  from light
Designed in love to symbolize
life , On a continuum,

Together mother and child , I thrive
I will grow and my shadow will be long
As hers will disappear and mine takes her place
I will bring my daughters to the sun

We will cast our shadows on the ground
She will see me as I saw you
And I will remember love , past and present
On life’s continuum
