Mother And Her Shadows

I saw a young mother

With eyes full of laughter

And two little shadows

Came following after

Wherever she moved

They were always right there

Holding onto her skirts

Hanging onto her chair

An adhesive pair

“Don’t you ever get weary

As, day after day

Your two little tagalongs

Get in your way?”

She smiled as she shook

Her pretty young head

And I’ll always remember

The words that she said

“It’s good to have shadows

That run when you run

That laugh when you’re happy

And hum when you hum

For you only have shadows

When you life’s filled with sun.”
