At times you’re here
At times you’re not
And when you’re gone
I wonder not
Where you’ve gone
Or where you’ve been
I wait for your return
My twin

At day you follow
In my step
You’re by my side
All day, except
At night you leave
You go somewhere
I wait for you
In this lonely air

The time will come
When you’ve returned
And no longer will
I be concerned
Until the sun
Goes down again
You’re at my side
My shadow friend

This was just a randomly inspired poem. I started thinking of Peter Pan for some reason and how his shadow kept leaving, so I wrote this. Hope you like it!
