Shadows Walking Hand in Hand in the Woods

Posted on April 15, 2011

When I was a teenager I can remember my friend who lived in a house out in the middle of the woods. On the property there were two graves of the people who built the house and out of respect my friends parents allowed them to be buried on their land as part of their last wishes.

There was a narrow path that meandered through the trees about 200 yards before reaching the grave cite. One day around six thirty my friend and I were building a tree house for his little brother about twenty yards off the path when I noticed out of the corner of my eye what appeared to be two people. Turning my head I saw two disembodied shadows walking along the path hand in hand at a slow pace.

I pointed and shouted to my friend who also saw them and yelped. The shadows both looked at us while keeping up the same pace towards the graves. As they got over the graves they vanished into thin air.

I saw the shadows walking the path hand in hand a few times after that, and my friend’s parents claimed that sometimes you could hear an old woman singing hymns in the greenhouse, or what sounded like somebody working in the shop. The spirits or whatever they were seemed peaceful enough, and never bothered anybody.

When the family was on vacation one summer some vandals thought it would be sporting to light the house on fire, and it burned to the ground, My friend moved away and never came back, but sometimes I like to hike out to where their house used to be and walk around.

I haven’t ever seen the shadows again but sometimes when I am out there I can hear faint singing, or footsteps walking down the road alongside me.

    Thanks for sharing Tom.

    That was nice of them to give the last wish of the previous owners ( or did they just built the house? )

    Such a beautiful story… Still in love after death, romantic!

    Vandals have no heart or respect! How can people be so cruel!?!?

    Hearing the footsteps & singing after the house burned down is still romantic, means they are still happy & together after death :-D

  2. Truebeliever says:

    wow LMC you are so wrong that is not romantic at all it would creep me out if i saw any sprirt or shadow creature i would wet myself i would never go anywhere near that grave site. Just to let you know !!!

  3. Skylark says:

    I think its a beatiful story! The thought of being with your loved one after death really is romantic! I would love to see them walking together…so sweet.

  4. BekkieLassy says:

    I do think its romantic aswell. It just shows that their Love was truely very strong when they were alive. That they will never let go of each other. That truely is a grait example of true love. Something that rarely exists these days. People just throw love around like its a beach ball.
    For the vandals……. I hope they get what they deserve. A punishment from…. Well who/what ever

  5. Tracey says:

    I think it romance too and best wish for them to be buried on their site but that is cruel of Vandals but my question is why this Vandals burn their home ? its just not right for that..

  6. Anonymous says:
