You followed me wherever I went,
atleast your voice gave me company.
You advised me to ignore others
when they stayed away from me.
You supported, whatever I did
kept a promise that you will stay.
You were there, to guide and help
even when I expected other’s presence.
You spoke very little, rarely scolded
b’coz you never wanted to lose me.
You could understand, whatever I did
or you chose to believe that I’m right.
Whenever I ignored you, you didn’t mind
you gave time to replenish myself.
My talks never bored you, even my grumblings
comforting me seemed like your hobby.
You never moaned, over my imperfection
coz you were the only one with common sense.
I truly believe, to this very day
that you are my very own shadow.
