Shadow: A Poem

Updated on February 10, 2014

I stand guard behind you,

Letting the light fall upon your face,

As your constant companion,

I will never leave you alone in the dark,

I can't reflect your image,

But I will mirror you, always.

      Clever and so much said in so few words. A great poem and voted up.

      Fascinating poem - reminds me of a little one we learned as children, it began: 'I have a little shadow that goes in and out with me

      And what can be the use of it is more than I can see....

      f: Actually, neither; I was just personifying a shadow.

      So is this about a husband, or the presence of God?

      Monis Mas: I'm so glad you love it! It's comforting to know we're never alone.
