You see me when there is light
But I fade away in darkness
You think I’m gone, leaving you
But I’m here, waiting for my sun
Your rays that would shine upon me

For you will never be alone
From day to night, from dusk to dawn
Though I seem to disappear
I’m here, watching over you
Allowing you to grow, be free

But when you feel down, worried
Just turn around and you shall see
I never move, I’m never gone
I never really fade away
Despite the absence of your light

I may seem invisible
But I am just holding your hand
With light and even in darkness
I’ll always stand beside you
I’ll forever be your shadow
