` Sh adow. Follow me every step of the way,
from young to old, night and day.
Watch me make mistakes and over come struggle,
knowing there are so many things that I must juggle.
Leave me at the end of the day,
because I know you will be there in the morning to stay.
But most of all thank you for having my back,
because the moment you leave I will have a heart attack.
Thank you for reminding me that I am alive,
because when you are gone so am I.
