They came from the shadows
Wearing matching grins.
Their eyes shining with mirth
And their mouths filled with laughter.
There were two of them,
And they both looked as different as they could.
Yet they stuck close to one another,
Their hands always attached.
From them the shadows grew,
Bigger and darker until all else disappeared.
They held hands as all light vanished,
And laughed together in the everlasting darkness.
They stayed together until the very end they brought,
Holding hands and laughing,
Never letting go.
They came from the shadows,
And shadows they became.
