The Night Shadows

I walk behind you; don’t think that you lead.
In the darkness, I am freed.
I am bound to you, while you walk upright.
I am immortal, even in the bright daylight.

I have no friends to share my pains,
Don’t confine me with gloomy chains.
As the night fades, you’ll wake up soon.
And I, your shadow, will dance till noon.

I am under your feet, until you die.
My loyalty stays albeit you say goodbye.
Though you remain eternally ignorant,
It’s only your shadow that will never lie.
