I go wherever you go,

and for that you’re

never alone.


I am a mirror of you, but

I follow in your steps.

I am your clone.


At night when you sleep

I stand over you and

keep the others away.


You’re only safe in the light,

but it’s a night where evil

likes to stray.


It is my purpose to keep you

safe and make sure the other

shadows never take my place.


For if that happens, you’ll wake

and like me you become a

shadow with no face.
