My..........


I go to bed with you.
In the flickering light of the night lamp,
I see your hazy self,
And embrace slumber in your arms.

When I unlock my eyes in the mornings you are gone, no where in sight
But you assure me of your presence when I am up on my feet.

You never leave me to myself,
When I falter you falter,
When I laugh, you laugh
And my tears make you cry.

When you are gone for that part of the day,
I look around and smile,
You leave me only when you are sure I am not alone.

In the solitude of that corner in my room,
We drink together sip after sip.
I have never seen you smile,
Nor have I looked into your eyes,
Yet you constantly remind me, let me know,
You will never let go, even when I breathe no more.
My shadow.
