A true friend in a way.


I was followed by a shadow all the way home

sometimes he was beside me

would not leave me alone.

I tried to out run him

hid behind a bush

but he was having none of that

and hid with me as well.

I was sure I had him licked,

as I walked the underpass,

then when I emerged

he was there waiting on the otherside.

Its not that I am unfriendly

just need my space sometimes

and shadow seems to be attached to me

which can be a bind.

I guess he is my soul mate

and lets leave it there

at least he never cheeks me

and as a friend he's always here.

As long as he pays his share of the rent... not much else matters.

Cheers,
