You told me once, "Life is an opportunity to be the best you can be". You probably thought those words would comfort me. You didn't know I didn't need comfort. I didn't want to be "the best". I just wanted to be a shadow that disappears at night… You are gone now and I will never know the truth your words carried… Sometimes I walk by the house you lived in. You used to wait for me on the bench in the park nearby. Every time I pass the bench I wonder: do the shadows really disappear?
