Shadow, your eternal friend

I am your friend, never your foe,

Sometimes I fade, or shrink, but I never quite go.

For I am ever present by your side,

From me you cannot simply run nor hide.

What you experience, I do too,

But no pain or emotion I feel, unlike you.

I am always there for you, a faithful friend,

There for every moment, memory, from birth till the end.

You can say anything to me, for I listen well.

Though pieces of advice I tend to quell.

Long may you live, for whilst you do so do I.

Yet for even when you pass, I shall remain close by.

Bravo @Jamboree ............... "Though pieces of advice I tend to quell." A line with great fit to a shadow's persona................. Causes me to remember trying to outrun my own shadow as child....... Standing in the sunlight and stretching my arms high and wiggling my fingers........ trying to make a move that my shadow couldn't........... Your  poem is a great way to give your shadow a voice...............
