Being Her Shadow

Always I am with her
every step
I tag along

attempt to let her know
she’s not alone
but a smile

does not greet me
when I appear
around her

only a sadness
I can’t reverse
for her

as I put on display
the shapeshift
of her body;

limited are my capabilities
without a voice
to soothe her.
