My Shadow


I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me.

It follows me during the day and then falls asleep.

It is as dark as night,

And mysterious as space.

It makes me laugh, it makes me cry,

It makes me change all the time.

I love my little shadow

Because it’s my little partner,

But I also hate it,

Because it makes me very angry.

it is very special.

But also annoying.

I love my little shadow,

who is my little friend,

and I thank her following everyday.





As dark as space,
Very sweet
And delicous.
Very tastey.
Many different kinds
many different colors
And Many different forms.

I could eat this all day

It has such a good taste

I just love it so much i cant explain.ld eat this all day
It has such a good taste
I just love it so much i cant explain.
