Favorite Quote:
"Look up and smile because there is always tomorrow."

You dress in black,
Cowering from the light,
You hide behind me,
Never standing up on your own,
You just stay on the ground.

You need me as your life source,
Never doing what you want,
You just mimic me,
My every movement,
You move from the sun.

You cower when I cower,
Stand when I stand,
You fade in with the dark,
Leaving me to fend for myself in the night,
You are my shadow.

The author's comments:
I was inspired by thinking about who or what is always there during the day, but disappears in the night.
