My Shadow

My shadow 
  follows me 
  to the depths of the sea
and to dizzying mountain heights
 My shadow 
    allows me to write free verse 
as opposed to rhyme 
My shadow 
    urges me to read the NY Times
So I can see all the terrible 
things going on in the world 
A blast of light 
Suddenly strikes! !
But my shadow will prevail 
He may bet he only real friend i have

Beautifully put Matthew; our shadow follows us everywhere, inspires our muse and helps us in so many ways, yet you've thanked it.
