Sitting on the steps so quiet and shy,
Was a lost little boy with a tear in his eye.
No one wanted to come out and play.
His friends all told him to go away.

But I am here.  I'll be you're silent friend.
I've been with you since way back when.
I'll see you through your ups and downs.
With you I will be, when no one else is around.

I'll always be right by your side.
Only in the shade is where I can hide.
I know everything you see and do.
For I am the shadow that follows you.

This is a cute poem, made me think of the
"imaginary friends" that children sometimes keep.

 Open arms can be the most fragile in the world...

This is adorable, I too could picture the little boy.  Reminded me of the times when I was little that I used to play with my shadow, it was fun =o)

Thank you hoot, devina and Echo.  I can also relate Echo.  Guess at one time or another we have all had our own imaginary friend.

I kept thinking who could this friend be?
A silent reminder who is always there?
The boy's shadow of course that invites happiness and glee!
