The day you took your first baby steps,
I knew mistakes you were bound to make,
So, I decided to walk besides for you to follow,
Far yet close enough like your own shadow.
Every time you would find yourself alone & lost,
When a friend is something you would need most,
I will pull you close to me, just to let you know,
You can always find a friend in your own shadow.
Those days when you will have weird mood swings,
When talking to people would seem least interesting,
I will try to bring respite to your crying, burning soul,
Soaking your emotional outburst like a silent shadow.
