Sometimes 'tis the shadow that gives the brightest light

my shadow moves perfectly
step by step behind me
it may be to my left or right
it depends not on day nor night

it can shiver in the daylight sun
or melt with heat in the darkest hour
it melds itself to my giving soul
for no purpose other than to be…

it can help devour an ice cream cone
all rasperry and chocolate centre filled
with a tickle of whimsical
and a catch me if you can hoorah

with a giggle and a chortle
my shadow does a merry dance
never alone is shadow
it has me…….
smirking to itself as if entranced

darkness may be it’s form
or how it appears to be
but shadow is my comfort
that’s how it’s meant to be

Sometimes 'tis the shadow that gives the brightest light
