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...............
