To My Shadow

  `  Sh adow. Follow me every step of the way,

from young to old, night and day.

Watch me make mistakes and over come struggle,

knowing there are so many things that I must juggle.

Leave me at the end of the day,

because I know you will be there in the morning to stay.

But most of all thank you for having my back,

because the moment you leave I will have a heart attack.

Thank you for reminding me that I am alive,

because when you are gone so am I.
