SHADOW

You are my oldest friend,
my confidant,
my silent judge;

You know all I, too, have known;
have seen all I, too, have seen.

My twin,
growing upon my birth,
you slept with me,
calm in my cradle.

My child,
too; I have protected
you with my life.

You
are
eternity—

As I become the ash,
you come cover the earth.
