My Shadow - Walking By My Side Again
I wrote the following many years ago:
Hello shadow my old friend
Walking by my side again
Ever faithful, always silent
Willing to listen but never responding
With me through the seasons
You’ve never left me for unfounded reasons
As I rouse in the early morning hours
If I shiver due to Springtime showers
Passing by awakened flowers
Singing to myself at 3 AM
Turn the lights from bright to dim
With the lights of self of me
So I travel unaccompanied
I do all alone
Never influenced under their persecution
Wondering why they persecute me so
If you don’t like me let me go
But there is one with me again and again
My eternal pal, my shadow, my friend

A number of people around the world claim to have seen Bigfoot, Sasquatch, the Yeti, etc. Perhaps such a creature existed long, long ago but these creatures do not exist now nor have they recently.
