She knows me more than anyone
Cause she’s with me all my life.
Always following
Always sneaking
Behind, my back side.
I see her watching me
When I turn around,
And know she always has my back
As she hovers along the ground.
My shadow’s always with me
In the day and in the bright.
I can always count upon my shadow
Whenever it is light.
But when the darkness heads my way,
And the sun begins to dim.
My shadow runs away and flees
Hiding from night’s grim.
She’s fearful of the evening times
And loves all things bright.
She’ll follow me around all day,
But never through the night.
