My son has a shadow
and it follows him everywhere
It doesn’t matter where he goes
His shadow is always there

It is with him when he runs
It is with him when he walks
It sits beside him patiently
And mimics when he talks

It lays beside him when he’s sleeping
and joins in when he has fun
It sometimes gets so close to him
It seems that they are one

They are happiest together
Only ever one step apart
They have an unbreakable bond
And so much love within their heart

His shadow looks just like him
A shorter version with longer hair
Same smile, same nose, same cheeks
A perfect little pair

His shadow is his little sister
She idolises her big brother
He is her hero, her best friend
And she loves him like no other

My son has a shadow
and it follows him everywhere
It doesn’t matter where he goes
His little sister is always there
