Treasure Island

Shadow


In the deep depths of the night
I cannot see you
In the bright of day
You are there

Where do you go at night?
To a whole new world?
To the stars?
Or am I guessing way to big?
Or is there a new one everyday?

How does it feel to be stepped upon all day?
Do you even feel the pain?
Do you even feel at all?
If you can, how do you?

You change which side you stand on,
Throughout the time long day
Do you always stay away from the sun above?
Does it burn your eyes?

How is it being a shadow?
Would you let me try?
Would you like to trade me?
I'll be you and you can be I

Shadow,
Where do you go everyday?
Do you feel?
Are you even there?

Dedicated to my dear silly dog, Shadow.

It is very nice to think
The world is full of meat and drink,
