 The shadow

 

The shadow followed

The shadow saw

The little bunny

The hawks claw

 

The shadow touched 

The shadow faded 

The bunny screamed 

No one aided

 

The shadow watched

The shadow waited

The hawk lost strength

So the touch awaited 

 

The shadow moved on

The shadow then found

The mouse by the pond

One touch, it drowned

 

The shadow was sad

The shadow just wanted

To feel something special

But loneliness haunted

 

The shadow felt the gaze

The shadow met its host

The deer stood bravely 

Not leaving its post

 

The shadow was confused

The shadow was intrigued 

The two played together 

Til they fell down fatigued

 

The shadow was happy

The shadow enjoyed

This new companion 

Filled the painful void

 

The shadow saw sunrise

The shadow saw sunset

The deers fur turned gray

With nothing to regret

 

The time was now over

Their play had to end

They need to move on

Say goodbye to a friend

 

The shadow cried

The shadow just knew

One touch to decide

One final “thank you”
