I watched my shadow stroll across the street
and had to practically beg him to wait for me.
When the morning sun hit its piercing peak,
he waved goodbye and cried "I'm free!"
He gave a leap and clicked his heels
just to emphasize his state of glee
and as I tried to keep up with him
he wandered somewhere I could not see.
I let his pull guide my every step
but he was just as eager to flee,
we reached the coast, he took a dive
and now my shadow is lost at sea.
