The Girl Who Loved Her Shadow - Poem by Tina Ashok
Once there lived a little girl
whose heart was as pure as pearl.
She fell in love with her own shadow.
Why did she love him, no one could know.
For choosing him as her love, she had some reason:
He stayed with her through life’s every season.
He did not leave her alone, not a single day.
In no way he had been the cause for her dismay.
Autumn, spring or hot summer –
He always strolled beside her.
Whatever she did, he never complained.
Slowly and steadily, her love he gained.
He listened with patience, to her sorrowful song.
When all had gone, it was only him that came along.
He was her companion, and her soulmate.
Her passion for him did not abate.
She did not hesitate to lip on the sand,
so as to bestow her kisses upon his hand.
She used to walk under the moonlight,
wishing to meet him even at night.
She could give him in return, only her tears,
for being her lover in all her years.
He was god’s gift that she got since her birth.
And so they both made ‘heaven on earth.’
They wept together, they laughed together,
They were simply, ‘made for each other.’
He would be with her, till her last breath.
Nothing would part them, except her death.
