Childhood best friend
obscure to see,
known to extend
each time I flee.
Your soul depends
on me to be,
I make you bend
and crawl with me.

My growth is yours,
so is my speed.
You are my cure
for lonely needs.
You must endure,
my every deed.
Feeling secure,
always agree.

Partners in crime,
my closest peer,
with all my climbs,
sure to appear.
My silent mime
has no found fears,
here all the time,
throughout the years.

Each growing step
forced your follow.
Secrets we swept
tied tomorrows,
You must accept
options narrow.
My trust you kept
loyal shadow.

Shadow dancer
come guide my stroll,
open a place,
where we can go.

Walk through dry walls,
run up the stairs,
look in my mind,
help my soul dare.

Expose mystique,
life tries to hide,
swept off my feet,
your light unblinds.

Share tunes with me,
my beat is yours,
blend harmony,
our hearts beat pure.

Shadow dancer
please do not fade,
roam free all night,
linger all day.

Essence so clear,
yet filled with spark,
erase all fears,
felt in the dark.

– Grace Y. Estevez – Reddy
