You’re my shadow
You follow me around
When it is sunny outside.
And I enjoy seeing you
Grow before me as I take every step.
You used to be little, when I was a little girl
Skipping down the sidewalk.
Then like a blink of the eye you were grown like me
And we walked down the street with the determination and
Confidences of a young women.
My shadow you have always been there and
I hope to continue, to enjoy taking walks with you.
As I become an old women and our walks become
Shorter I know when I look down I’m never alone
For you are always there my shadow, until the very end.
