I can see
their shadows
and hear
their murmurs.

They whisper
their secrets
softly,
in my ear.

They complain
that I am
the only one
to listen to them.

They wander
the earth
moaning
for eternity

If only
I could
help them.
If only

I like this a lot, it really fits in well with your other work, you could definitely write an excellent collection of poetry.

Nice!  Did you mean to leave the last line like that? "If only"? Not that I'm objecting.  It's a very unique way to end a piece, and leaves you hanging/wanting more.
