My Little Shadow

©

Published by Family Friend Poems July 2006 with permission of the Author.

My little shadow, my little shadow, my little shadow and me
My little shadow was always one step behind, you see
My little shadow with her long blonde flowing hair
No matter how many times I looked, my little shadow was there

She would roam outside to play but not for long
Little shadows, mom's quiet time was gone
My little shadow would creep into my bed at night
My little shadow would kiss and hold me so tight

I turned around one day to find my little shadow was gone
But I still have the memories of my little shadow to hold on
Mom, enjoy your little shadows before they too are gone
It is truly sad when there's no more little shadow to tag along

My little shadow, as I have watched you grow
My dear little shadow, where did you go?
My precious little shadow, you are now grown
My little shadow now has two shadows of her own
