Unknown Friend

Don't worry
I'm here
You're never truly
Alone.

I'm with you
When you cry,
Even if you can't
See me.
I'm with you
When you're walking
By yourself.

If you need
To vent
I am a great listener.
I may not
Be able to respond,
But I will
always listen.

If you criticize
Yourself, based upon
My looks,
I wont be mad.

I understand
What you're
Going through,
For I am there
Everyday
Standing next
To you, no matter
What.

I have been
There through
Thick and thin.
When you were
Scared,
I was too,
But I did not
Leave, for I will
Always stand by
Your side.

I may go
Unnoticed,
Quite often,
But I am always
There for you.

I am your
Shadow.
